The day started at the church bright and early.
Stephanie was exactly as I knew she would be; calm and radiant, surrounded by her girls and family.
Stephanie’s mother had created the dress! It. was. amazing!!
There were literally hundreds and hundreds of crystals sewn onto it and also along the layers of the skirt.
She also made the bridesmaids and the flower girls dresses!
Then Craig arrived and it was time for the first look. 🙂
Stephanie’s father had scouted and found this amazing location for pictures.
It could not have been more perfect!
The farm had a formal water garden, so we had to get some reflections shots. I wanted this to look like a painting.
my fav… 🙂
Loved these girls!
The flower girls caught up in watching the bride and groom; completely unaware their picture is being taken.
Craig’s guys were a ton of fun,too!
Back to the church for the ceremony. Craig’s father married them which made it extra special.
More time for pictures between the ceremony and the reception.
It was obvious throughout the entire day how much these families loved each other.
Here’s Steph being loved on by a little cousin! 🙂
Isn’t she absolutely radiant?!!
The reception was BEAUTIFUL!!! All the flowers were white with accent colors of teal and black!
Craig and Stephanie’s fathers got up and told the story of the first time they met. Apparently they were gone so long both families had started to worry. Since neither of them were answering their phones (stephanie’s phone’s battery had fallen out and craig had his on vibrate and was ignoring it) Stephanie’s father headed out to look for them. He found them at Friendlys, still talking after 10 hours!!! So they presented them with an ice cream sundae from Friendlys. It was hilarious!
A final shot of the bridal party. Craig and Stephanie, thank-you so much; it was an honor!!
Your day was perfect from beginning to end! xoxoxo~ Kayla
