Love. I was completely surrounded and fueled by all the love that was oozing everywhere from every aspect of this magical day. I met Stephany a while back for a bridal session and got to hear all about her upcoming big day with her soon to be husband, Eric. She talked about her gown, the decor and how she planned on doing her hair. It all sounded so lovely how she described the whole day. It was so much fun taking pictures and chatting all about how her and her groom got engaged & of course, all girly things.
Fast forward a few weeks later & Stephany and Eric reached out to me about photographing their wedding, that was one week away! Wow! I was so honored to be able to be alongside them!
I joined them in the early afternoon while the gals were beginning to get ready and the house was filled with laughs, tons of smiles and lots of excitement. As Stephany got ready at her soon to be sister in laws, some tears were shed as she came down the stairs showcasing her completed ensemble. It was so very sweet. And then the surprises began! Eric had mentioned to me when we met the week prior about gifting Stephany with a necklace that he would love for her to open the morning of the wedding along with a surprise limo scooping her up to take her to her ceremony!
Although Eric had some darling surprises up his sleeve, so did Stephany. Stephany had one of her brothers sing “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley as she walked down the aisle. It was such a sweet & personal touch to the ceremony.
But talking of sweet & personal moments, both the maid of honor and best man blew me away with their speeches! Her sis, whom was her maid of honor, had me crying tears & the best man had me dying of laughter! They both had the sweetest words to say of the two & just told me that these two were truly loved & appreciated by each person in attendance.
Eric & Stephany, you two were an absolute joy to meet and I’m so, so glad I got to be a part of your beginning to married life. 💗
