Beautiful details for a Classic Bride
Stevi’s dress was so beautiful, and we love when bride’s have personalized hangers! They are the perfect little detail for dress shots! Her jewelry was the perfect accessory and her Badgley Mischka shoes were gorgeous!
Getting Ready with the Ladies at a Private Residence
Stevi’s mom and sister helped her to get into her dress. The excitement between them all filled the room. The laughter and the joy that the three of them shared, really showed how close they are and how important and memorable a day this was going to be!
Getting Ready with the Guys at a Private Residence
Meanwhile, Andrew and his guys were hanging out and getting ready at Andrew’s parents house. His mom helped him get ready, while their ring bearers were watching from the porch swing!
The Story of Stevi & Andrew
Stevi and Andrew have known each other nearly all of their lives, since they are from the same town, with a lot of the same friends. They went to the same high school and graduated a year apart. Andrew’s mom actually tried to set them up while they were in high school, but neither really went for it. They both went away to college, moved around a bit, and moved back home around the same time. They first reconnected after running into each other at a bar, and then again when Stevi had to visit Andrew’s work to get her windshield fixed!
A great first date turned into the most fun two years of dating and traveling! From Croatia to Charleston to Hudson Valley and Lake Placid… their most memorable trip to date was to Nashville! This is where Andrew popped the question, and of course Stevi said YES!
A Meaningful Ceremony at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish St Michael Church
Everyone was SO excited as they arrived at the church! The moments leading up to the Stevi walking down the aisle to Andrew were filled with excitement. And gosh, the moment when Andrew saw Stevi for the first time was
magical. You could tell he was so ECSTATIC. The ceremony went perfectly! Everyone was elated as the couple came
down the aisle! MARRIED! Everyone recessed from the church, then the couple came out and Lavender was thrown!
Bride & Groom Portraits at Wheaton Village
A friend of the groom drove the Bride and Groom to Wheaton Village in his vintage Pontiac, named Ellie. We love that the bride and groom chose to make a stop at Wheaton Village for their photos! The area is so beautiful and full of art and creativity and made the perfect backdrop for them!
Bridal Party Portraits at Wheaton Village
Andrew and Stevi’s bridal party was such a blast to hang out with and capture! We walked around the beautiful Wheaton Village, and were even followed everywhere by ducks! We may have contemplated taking one with us! haha!
A Fun Reception at the Windrift Hotel
The Windrift Hotel boasts of unparelled views of the sand and ocean, complemented by amazing staff and delicious food! They are one of our favorite venues because it is all true! Arriving to the venue, the room was already set up and decorated perfectly! The centerpieces, and all the flowers, were by the always talented A Garden Party! They are not only great friends of ours, but one of our favorite florists as well! Their work is unlike any other! The night went off without a hitch and the dance floor was crowded all night thanks to the DiNardo Brothers Entertainment!
