You want engagement, you want a wedding, you just don’t want the stress. When Amanda Roman first mentioned to her friend, a wedding planner, that she wanted to get engaged and married on the same day, her boyfriend, Ryan Leak, took notice. Ryan tells how he planned a surprise wedding for Amanda with the help of Amanda’s friends and family.
Ryan Leak is a dynamic speaker, entrepreneur and filmmaker. After graduating in 2009 from North Central University with a degree in Business, he began consulting with churches all over the country in the areas of media and staffing.
Amanda Leak has a degree from Dallas Christian College. She has worked in Chicago public schools with the good choices-based program “What’s Good.” The Leaks serve as Young Adult Directors at Covenant Church in Dallas, T.X. and speak at high schools, colleges, churches and conferences nationwide on the topic of healthy dating relationships and marriage preparation.
The Leaks have documented their experiences in The One: An Amazing Love Story Starts with You (May 5, 2015, WaterBrook Press).
