We arrived the morning of the wedding to her family’s farm. The ladies were inside, getting makeup done, hair pinned up in curled up-dos, and the wedding gown hanging on the doorframe in the living room. Stephanie was both excited and calm.
Stephanie and Kurt have known each other since elementary school. They started dating in 2011 and have weathered long-distance, busy careers, and moves. The celebration of their marriage was beautiful and elegant in so many ways. A really fun and unique part of their wedding was that it was her parents’ anniversary so they will now forever share that wonderful, happy date! They were also married in the same church as her parents were, a beautiful Catholic church with the most stunning light you’ve ever seen.
They chose a classic color theme with black bow ties and suits the guys and pale pink for the girls with lots of gold accents.
Stephanie’s mom is a hair dresser and did this beautiful style, as well as her own hair!
I absolutely adored how this gown fit Stephanie! I love the high cut in the front with the cap sleeves and then the surprise plunge in the back.
Keeping everything in the family, we went to Kurt’s uncle’s home for their first look and photos, then back to Stephanie’s parent’s home for the bridal party photos.
This quickly became a favorite. I love seeing these two together.
Perhaps the most people I’ve ever photographed at one time.
I love this little look her grandparents shared during the ceremony.
Stephanie & Kurt, thank you for inviting us to share your wedding day! It was such a pleasure getting to know your families and friends; the people who have shaped you into the two sophisticated, kind people you have become. So much love! -E
