Amy and Ryan are traveling performers. Ryan is an actor, singer, songwriter and producer; Amy’s a vocalist and handles the business end of entertaining. The couple met over a decade ago in Las Vegas when they both were performing in Legends in Concert, Ryan was Elvis. They have been inseparable ever since. While doing a show in Kinder, Louisiana for Coushatta Casino, Amy and Ryan felt it was time they tie the knot.
It takes a lot of documentation to get married in Louisiana, so they drove to Beaumont, TX for their courthouse wedding. Ryan flew his 20-year old son in for their big day. They decided to keep their wedding casual and simple and focus on their love for each other instead of cakes, linens and other distractions. They had a simple ceremony followed by a fancy dinner with Ryan’s son. The “wedding money” was spent on an amazing ring for Amy and two-week honeymoon at an exclusive resort on the Riviera Maya in Mexico.
It’s about love… in the end it’s the only thing that matters.
