Despite the short time in which they planned their New Year’s wedding, actress Debby Ryan and the Twenty One Pilots drummer, Josh Dun, had a fairytale wedding. The result was elegant and precise down to the last detail. Ryan, who is mainly known for her role in the Disney show Jessie and the Netflix series Insatiable, wore a princess-worthy gown and a pair of surprising shoes (for the better,) the four limed friend presented the rings, and the guests celebrated at a wild party. Who said haste makes waste?
A wedding is supposed to be a historic event, and usually requires hectic planning and organizing long in advance. That was not the case, however, for actress Debbie Ryan and Twenty One Pilots’ Drummer, Joshua Dun, whose set date was only 28 days from the day in which they decided to go for it. The urgency to walk down the aisle was due in no small part to the death of a close friend of the two. In a recent interview with Vogue, Ryan spoke on the whole wedding planning process and the unfortunate event. The actress said: “When he passed, it really rocked me and put a lot of things in perspective. It didn’t feel important to wait anymore, to stop being busy, or for things to line up perfectly—intending to do things is not nearly as powerful as doing, as we aren’t promised tomorrow.”
The unfortunate events may have precipitated the wedding, but the intentions were there before, as Dun proposed to Ryan in late 2018. The ring, which Dun designed together with a friend, almost didn’t make it in time. Fourtenetly, everything went according to plan, and Ryan said yes. When it came time to choose the venue for the ceremony, the couple had a clear direction. “We didn’t want the ceremony to be in a ballroom,” Ryan explains. “It became more and more important to us that the sanctity of the union exists in a reverent place. I think I saw every church in the greater Austin area and narrowed it down to two. Joshua chose the one we went with. The stained glass windows really got me.” The design included a nod to Ryan’s love for mixing high and low style and Dun’s penchant for splashy neon lighting.
Dun quickly chose a suit by Paul Smith made out of vintage green velvet. The drummer matched the suit with a pair of black Nike Cortez sneakers. Ryan also knew exactly what she wanted for her special day: Eli Sabb’s dress. “The day the collection dropped on Vogue, I saved it. For a long time, it was the only image of a wedding dress I had saved anywhere, and the only image in a folder titled ‘wedding’ on my phone,” Ryan said. The gown, a classic, shiny, multi-layered princess dress, created the perfect Cinderella effect on the church steps. The bride also went for Cortez sneakers in white. Ryan explained the non-traditional choice saying she wanted to get to church as quickly as possible. When it came time for the rings, after the pair’s vows, their dog Jim barged into the church, in a bow-tie, with the rings attached to a pillow on its collar. After the ceremony, the bride changed into a sexy slip dress and put on her mother’s veil. We wish nothing but happiness for the lovely couple!
