Twedding_couplehe story of Stephanie Rothrauff and Ryan Helline reads almost like a fairy tale. Ryan grew up in Wilmot, Ohio, and studied at the Ohio State University. Stephanie grew up in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania and studied at Purdue University. Their paths first crossed about seven years ago when each landed a job at the Timken Company after graduating from college. They met through a co-worker at Timken and soon started spending time together outside of work, playing tennis and running. In 2010, the couple filled an advent calendar with things to do during the month of December. On the 19th, Stephanie peeked ahead and found a ring hidden in one of the boxes. Ryan proposed right then. They were married May 26, 2012, at the First United Methodist Church in Massillon. A reception followed at the McKinley Grand Hotel. “We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. We enjoyed spending the day with family and friends that came in town to celebrate with us,” Stephanie said.
