Our Story

While we both are SHS graduates, our story starts long after high school. Alyssa knew Ryan as one of the older boys who happened to drive her best friend to high school every day and Ryan knew Alyssa as the younger girl who moved in just a few houses down from his parents home in Lincolnshire. Fast forward through their college years - Ryan attending Indiana University and Alyssa, the University of Michigan (A Big 10 House Divided) ... we officially met in our post college years living in Chicago not far from one another. We coincidentally continued to run into each other at Bears' tailgates and Chicago bars so often that it required addressing one night at Woodies on Wells Street.. Both running into cabs at the end of the night parting with our respective friends, we agreed to meet on purpose the next time. Our first date was at Prasino in Wicker Park (which has very unfortunately closed since...R.I.P.) BUT from then on the rest was history. Here we are 4 years later, living in a new city, with a new addition to our family, Benny VanLyssco, and we couldn't be more thrilled to spend the rest of our lives together and share in celebration with our best friends and family!

Travel

Aloft Austin Downtown

Hi friends and fam!
If you're wanting to stay downtown near our venue - Aloft is a great option! Make sure to mention the Cohen/Van Lopik wedding block for reduced rates :)

*Aloft also has an awesome patio bar/restaurant called Caroline/Upstairs at Caroline. Check it out AND be wary of the "Bad Life Choices" frozen drink... it's deliciously dangerous.

Love ya'll

Lyss & Ry

Our Favorite Austin Gems

Adventures

Ry and I LOVE exploring Austin and encourage you to do your own exploring while you're here! Some of our favorite things to do:
  • Barton Springs Pool (natural springs pool and runoff area for kayaking and SUPing)
  • Deep Eddy Pool (beautiful views of Lady Bird Lake!)
  • Hike the Green Belt (lots of entry points to see the hills of Austin!)
  • Bike/Walk/Scoot Lady Bird Lake trail
  • Mount Bonnell
  • Walk up and down historic South Congress for cute boutiques, Austin bites, and live music!

Breweries

This list could get pretty out of hand BUT here are a few of our favs!
  • The ABGB
  • St. Elmo Brewing Co.
  • Hops & Grain Brewing
  • Zilker Brewing Co.
  • Lazarus Brewing Co.
  • Blue Owl Brewing Co.
  • LIVE OAK BREWING CO *our favorite BUT not super convenient ... order a Live Oak Hefeweizen at any brewery/restuarant to experience our favorite Austin Beer
  • Easy Tiger (not a brewery BUT one of our favorite Beer Garden's on 6th Street)

Bites

Lots of options - Austin is very casual ... try as many food trucks as you can, they are all wonderful!
  • Craft Pride/Via 313 (Local beers and Detroit Style Za!)
  • Radio Coffee & Beer/Veracruz Tacos (hands down best breakfast tacos)
  • South Congress Cafe (our favorite brunch spot!)
  • Jo's Coffee - 2 locations - downtown and on Congress Ave - Jo's on Congress is a tourist essential ("I love you so much" Austin sign)
  • Rainey Street has a food truck food court with the best of the best... we LOVE Happy Lobster and Bangers right across the street
  • Cedar Door - close to our venue and both hotels if you're staying in the city :)
