Laura and Ryan are gentle, compassionate people. Before she met Ryan, Laura had made a list of characteristics that she wanted to share in a partner. When she met Ryan, his love for animals matched hers. And so it was expected their animals would attend their ceremony: Clover the dog, Sir Rudolph the cat, a little black hen who once warned the family of a horned owl in the coop, and most notably, Arvid the duck.
Laura and Ryan were married in the backyard of the house where Ryan grew up, with the creatures, human and otherwise, they love most.
The work of art on Laura’s head was made by Bellaflora.
