The long awaited moment!
It was Traver’s weekend in Saratoga Springs. The biggest weekend of the year! Jenna and Ryan enjoyed their time at the races Saturday with close friends Patrick Hart and The Nowak family. It was a day of great races and even better drinks!
Sunday rolls around and Jenna and Ryan decide to relax all day. It was a super rainy day. Ryan asked to go to Druther’s for some food, which is nothing out of the ordinary for a Sunday late lunch. Jenna barely tossed her hair up, put on some LuLu gear, kept her glasses on, and didn’t put any make up on what so ever.
The couple enjoyed some amazing food and drinks. Ryan decided to drink a little more than normal but Jenna didn’t think anything of it.
They went home to walk their dog, Tito. It was still raining. Jenna put on one of Ryan’s oversized hoodies and some shorts. As Jenna was walking the dog, Ryan pulled up to them and asked her to hop into his Jeep. Confused, Jenna asked, WHY? Ryan explained that they finally were able to get an appointment at a house that they were interested in purchasing.
Jenna jumped in the car with Ryan, wet from the rain and looking frazzled from not getting ready all day. Jenna explained that Tito still needed to go to the bathroom. Ryan suggested to take Tito to the Yaddo Gardens because it was on the way to the house.
Ryan, Jenna, and Tito all arrived at the Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga Springs. The most beautiful spot in town. They walked through all the flowers, fish ponds, walkways, and mazes. STILL RAINING!
At the top of the gardens near the beautiful steps, Jenna turned her back to look at some flowers and Ryan got down on one knee. Jenna turned around to make her way down the staircase and to her surprise she found Ryan at the bottom holding out the MOST gorgeous ring.
Ryan professed his love for Jenna and SHE SAID YES!!!!!
And in true Ryan and Jenna fashion, they made their way to the closest bar to have celebratory drinks. The bar was called Kings Tavern and they didn’t allow pets. So Ryan and Jenna stayed in the rain and took a shot and had a drink together.
