Ryan Leak Planned A Surprise Proposal And Wedding Day Using His Girlfriend's Pinterest 'My Dream Wedding' Page
Ryan Leak earned the title of Best Groom Ever when he surprised his girlfriend, Amanda Roman with a proposal and wedding in the same day, all planned based off her ‘Dream Wedding’ Pinterest page.
It all began when Ryan overheard Amanda make an offhand remark to a friend about how romantic it would be to get engaged and be married on the same day almost two years ago. In order to give Amanda, not only her less than 24-hour engagement, but also a big wedding, Ryan planned everything in secret for a year and a half. He chose the location of Miami, but every other wedding detail was unknowingly chosen by the bride: he went straight to Amanda’s Pinterest board titled, ‘My Dream Wedding.'
The couple released a documentary chronicling their wedding day, and in it Amanda recounts how shocked she was and how confused when Ryan kept on going after the proposal.
“I was thinking, ‘Why is he rushing this? This is the biggest moment of our lives,’” she says.
Amanda quickly realized that the day would also serve as her wedding day when Ryan surprised her with a lounge full of their friends and family.
“I just tried to listen to my girlfriend as best as I possibly could… She could have said anything and I would have tried to pull it off,” Ryan told HLN.
In order to keep the secret, Ryan went so far as to change some of the contact names in his phone and swore all of their friends and family to secrecy.
For the wedding dress, Ryan managed to convince Amanda into shopping for it without a proposal. He convinced her that he knew they would get married eventually, and she might as well start dress shopping early.
“We actually convinced Amanda that it was a great idea to start dress shopping about seven months… I had her friend steal it on her way down to Miami so I never saw the dress until she came down the aisle,” revealed to HLN.
The fairy-tale day wasn’t without its hiccups. In fact, Amanda almost didn’t make it to the wedding. Her flight was canceled the day before the wedding was to take place, and on the day of the wedding a storm hit Miami and they had to move the wedding inside at the very last minute.
The happy couple got married on June 7, put the documentary video of their wedding on YouTube in September, and have become somewhat of a viral sensation.
