How A Cheerleader And An NFL Player Say I Do


How A Cheerleader And An NFL Player Say I Do

Both Gabie and Ryan have roots in North Carolina, as that is where they graduated college from. So, they both knew they wanted a bit of that Southern charm on their wedding day, and we have to say we could not be more charmed by this beautiful barn wedding. We teamed up with Be Inspired PR to bring you this charming white wedding day in North Carolina. 

We are confident you will love every last bit of this beautiful day, and to be sure to check out every last photo from Kaitlyn Blake Photography in the full gallery.

The Perfect Venue

When Ryan Switzer, former University of North Carolina wide receiver and current Pittsburgh Steeler, proposed to former UNC Cheerleader Gabie Dinsbeer, they both knew they wanted a classic southern wedding with strong ties to their alma mater. The Barn of Chapel Hill, located on a gorgeous flower farm just a few miles away from the university, was the perfect location.

The Perfect Day

Lush, garden-inspired flowers were an important detail for the bride, and the Barn of Chapel Hill's floral staff made sure Gabie's dream became a reality. From the lovely garden ceremony to the classic green and white centerpieces in the barn, no detail was overlooked. 

 Personalized jars filled with the farm's honey made for a sweet (in more ways than one!) way to escort guests to their seats. Taper candles, blush napkins, and gold-rimmed chargers all added to the elegance of the barn's reception space. Friends, family, and Ryan's current and former teammates all enjoyed a night filled with laughter and dancing.
