Clear Cut Couples: Ryan and Sabrina

Ryan and Sabrina met in high-school when they were both just 15 years old. They had a mutual friend and he asked her to introduce them! The night before they were going to be introduced, he had Facebook messaged her that he thought she was cute and wanted to meet her. She was so excited because she always thought he was so cute! They started hanging out and a couple months later at homecoming, he asked her to be his girlfriend, young love! They have been inseparable ever since.

For their first date, they went on a group date to a bowling alley! It was a fun group date and Sabrina remembers Ryan trying to be slick and helping her learn how to bowl, even though she was definitely the better bowler. It was really cute!

They have been together for 9 years in October!  They have made millions of memories, from snowboarding trips, to trips to the Caribbean, and cruises where Ryan was stuck sleeping with her brothers (LOL). From finishing high school, college and graduate school together, they have really been through it all!

They both finished graduate school this May, 2021. He studied at University of Central Florida while Sabrina studied at the University of Miami. Because they were graduating at the same time, May 2021, they planned a graduation photo shoot with a group of her best friends + Ryan. Meanwhile he had been working with her roommate and photographer to propose that day.

Graduation photo shoot day came around and after nearing the end of the shoot, he found a beautiful spot where the photographer had them doing couple poses. The photographer had let him know the signal in advance and asked them to go stand back to back and take a few steps forward. She told Sabrina that on the count of 3, spin around and jump in his arms for a cute photo op, but when she turned around, he was on one knee.

Sabrina could not have been more surprised! She said, “Ryan did an amazing job! I was so sure I would know when he would propose. I am still dreaming! Can’t believe I get to marry my high school sweetheart. I can’t stop staring at the ring, it’s beautiful!”

Next year, they plan to get married in the beautiful Dominican Republic, where Sabrina’s parents got married. Her mom is from there and it holds a special place in her heart. They can’t wait for their wedding with all of their friends and family. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
