I met Stephen and Jessica almost a year ago to the day. It was a couple of weeks after they had attended the wedding of my clients, Josh and Chelsea. Jessica happened to catch Chelsea’s bouquet… and then Jessica and Stephen got engaged a few weeks later. So, I guess catching the bouquet does have some magical powers after all ;-)
When we met for their consultation, we bonded over our mutual love for all things Fall related and Pumpkin flavored. I fell in love with their super friendly personalities and their adorableness (yes, that is a word because the red squiggly lines didn’t show up underneath when I typed it) together. I was especially drawn to their genuine care for each other and the obvious, deep love between them.
I can’t believe how fast the year passed by! Before we knew it, it was time for Stephen and Jessica to have their turn to start the rest of their lives together at the gorgeous Stone Bridge Farms in Cullman. I LOVE this venue! So so pretty!! We were blessed with gorgeous sunlight that made the already happy occasion all the more cheery. Stephen and Jessica had beautiful florals and centerpieces and some super cute and unique ideas when it came to their “guest book”, their cakes, and the drapes across the ceiling above the altar. Stunning. But I think what I loved most about this wedding was the moment Stephen saw his stunning bride for the first time. His reaction was priceless. Priceless. It still chokes me up just thinking about it. Witnessing moments like that and having the honor of capturing those moments, and all the other important, once in a lifetime moments on a wedding day, for people is so thrilling for me.
Stephen and Jessica, I love you guys. You have been such a fun couple to work with from the minute I met you. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you two!
Ahh! Love! I need to stop looking at these before I choke up again!
These drapes were so stunning!
LOVE this on on the left!! Stephen is like “I’m married! Look at that ring!” :-D
A special ending to the father/daughter dance… the DJ played a special rock song that Jessica and her dad used to rock out to! Love it!
