Ashley and Ryan Klesmit met in fifth grade, started dating in high school and decided to attend Baylor University together. The Klesmits were married Oct. 25, 2014, the only Saturday that October without a Baylor football game.
When they discovered their wedding venue offered a custom ice sculpture, the Klesmits knew exactly what they wanted--a Baylor Bear ice sculpture to set the tone for their reception. Ashley and Ryan further displayed their Baylor pride by assembling a Bear Cave, a photo booth complete with Baylor props for guests to use in their photos.
"Guests couldn't enter the reception hall without seeing our Baylor pride. Our ice sculpture was one of the first things they saw," Ashley said. "We're #BaylorProud because Baylor played a huge role in developing us to be the adults that we are today. We entered Baylor as wide-eyed teenagers and graduated as mature adults with one of the top degrees in the country."
