SALT LAKE CITY — The idea of a picture perfect wedding has always looked a little different through the eyes of Elizabeth Weissman and Vinnie Ryan.
“We met online in a video gaming forum,” Weissman said.
They’re a couple who survived months of online dating and distance.
“She was in Oklahoma, and I was in Montana,” Ryan said.
But after finally moving to the same place, they were met with a new set of challenges.
“It’s been a romantic adventure, Weissman said. “Our bond has kept us afloat, and it will continue to do so.”
Following a yearlong courtship, Weissman, 21, and Ryan, 25, decided they never wanted to be apart again. Ryan proposed just after the couple moved into an apartment together in Montana. But shortly after they began to celebrate their lives together, Ryan’s life took a turn for the worse.
