We briefly met in June of 2013 after two weeks of Stephy living in Las Vegas. I got her number and text asking to meet for coffee but we never did. Fast forward two months later, we bumped into each other by accident and that ended up being our first date. We fell in love quickly and had a one of the kind romance that made us want to spend the rest of our lives together. We got engage on 4th of July 2017 (Ryan's favorite holiday). After contemplating the best location for our wedding, we decided on Bogota Colombia Stephy's birth place.
Calle. 93a #11A - 31, Bogotá, Colombia

It will start with a traditional Colombia party bus call "La Chiva" where we will be heading to a local's favorite club in the city for cocktails, snacks and a good time until 1am
We will start our cultural tour at Museo del Oro (The Gold Museum), home to one of the biggest collections of pre-Hispanic gold in the world. Reopened in 2008 after a decade spent in renovation, more than 55,000 pieces of gold and other materials are on display from all the major pre-Hispanic cultures in Colombia.
Afterwords. we will stroll through Plaza de Bolivar— the center of government in Colombia and the heart of the original town of Bogotá. Lively, pigeon-filled, and perfect for people watching, the Plaza features the National Capitol building, Palace of Justice, Cathedral of Bogota and Mayor’s Office.
For lunch we will go to La Puerta Falsa, a small family owned restaurant that has been open for over a century. Cozy up in this heralded, hole-in-the-wall lunch spot for a warm bowl of Ajiaco, the region’s most famous dish. The thick and hearty soup consists of shredded chicken, potatoes, and a chunk of corn on the cob. Also try the tamales and chocolate completo (hot chocolate with cheese, buttered bread and a biscuit).
The afternoon will end up with a ride in a cable car to El Cerro de Monserrate, located at 10,000 feet high. This hill top offers sweeping views of the capital and a church features a 17th century figure of a fallen Christ, which attracts pilgrims throughout the year. You’ll also find souvenir and snack shops.
For us the most important thing is your attendance at our wedding! but if you want to give us a gift, we prefer cash. In Colombia, giving money as a gift is a common practice that works best for us. If that is your decision, please place the gift in the small blue envelope that we are attaching to the invitation. It should be deposited in the box that you will find by our wedding cake and sweets in the hall. Thank you.
