Ryan O’Callaghan and Shea Wood’s love story started in 2007, when they exchanged flirty looks across a classroom at Queen’s. They noticed each other around campus and downtown Kingston, but it was one autumn day in particular that shifted everything. As they were passing each other on University Avenue, Ryan boldly asked Shea, “Will you go on a date with me?” And without hesitation, Shea replied, “Of course!” Their first year was filled with long talks through the night, road trips, thoughtful gifts, loving gestures, and a memorable Christmas. Life ended up taking Ryan to New York City and Shea to Montreal. Though distance separated them, there were certain things that tied them together: claddagh rings, birthday wishes, and a love that was hard to forget. They found their way back together when their paths crossed in Toronto. Since that reunion, they’ve never looked back. Ryan proposed on the beautiful coast of Puglia, Italy. On another autumn day – Oct. 22, 2022 – Ryan and Shea were married in the Thousand Islands at the Ivy Lea Club surrounded by family and friends.
