Real Engagements: Daphne and Ryan
New Orleans has always been the city of the late nights and boisterous parties. In the past few years, New Orleans has also become the city of love. Along with being one of the top destination wedding cities in the country, New Orleans also plays host to hundreds of weddings and even more wedding-related festivities each year.
The city recently acted as the backdrop to the next chapter in the love story of Daphne Rogers and Ryan Remarcke. The Philadelphia couple met in 2014, like many 21st century couples are, through a dating website. And on a recent trip to New Orleans for Memorial Day weekend, Ryan thought it the perfect time to enlist the help of local photographer Victoria of VCB Photography to pull off the proposal of their lifetime.
It was a sunny Sunday afternoon when Ryan took Daphne to walk around City Park. They came to the popular 1900s stone bridge nestled in the park and with Victoria at the ready, Ryan began to profess his love for his future bride, got down on one knee and asked for Daphne’s hand in marriage.
Maybe it’s the history the surrounds you at every turn or the whisper of past love that gives New Orleans its romantic and poetic air. No matter what it is, you’ll never regret making New Orleans part of your love story.
Daphne and Ryan will be married in September 2017 in Pennsylvania.
