Ladies, ladies, ladies, Pinterest life just got real in a majorly beautiful way. Today marks an occasion when everyone who has ever made a dream wedding board on Pinterest–public or private–can feel vindicated and smug. That’s because of one very smart man–Ryan Leak–who used his bride-to-be’s Pinterest wedding board for inspiration to plan her dream wedding.
Ryan knew he wanted to marry Amanda Roman the first time he saw her, and after hearing her say to a friend that she wanted to get engaged and married on the same day he knew he was going to have to pull off something big if he wanted to give his dream girl the wedding he knew she wanted and deserved.
Enter Pinterest. Amanda had pinned 224 pins to her “My dream wedding” board and that’s the first place that Ryan looked for inspiration for the wedding once he decided he was ready to propose–about 5 years into their relationship. “She planned the entire wedding without even knowing that she planned the entire wedding,” he told The Daily Dot. From the groom’s socks to bridesmaid bouquets to thank you notes to the dress, every detail was looked after and all Ryan had to do was pick and choose and get Amanda to show up. (This turned out to be harder than expected when a tropical storm in Miami cancelled the bride’s flight and threatened to wash out the wedding. But don’t worry this story has a happy ending.)
As if Ryan even knowing what Pinterest is, let alone using it to plan his girlfriend’s dream wedding wasn’t cute enough, he also hired a cinematographer to film the surprise proposal and wedding. Check out the documentary below and make sure to grab some tissues at your desk; you’re definitely going to need them.
