Groom and his Groomsmen Getting Ready in Stone Harbor, NJ

Vaughn got ready at his parents house in Stone Harbor.  Just like the ladies, the guys were very chill!  And of course, since one of his groomsmen is in the cigar business, they each had to have one before leaving for the venue!

The Story of Amy & Vaughn

Vaughn and Amy met as co-workers at a previous job.  She was the Office Manager and he was a Consultant. They fell in love and secretly dated for a year before Amy got a new job. At this point, they finally told their coworkers! Most were surprised, except a few people that they shared their secret with!

Ceremony at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor

Since the weather has been so up and down the past couple weekends, Amy & Vaughn made the call to have their ceremony indoors at the Yacht Club.  The choice was perfect, because it made the ceremony feel just that much more intimate.  That smile of Amy’s right after their first kiss, as they were announced as husband and wife says it all!

A Romantic Kings Mills Wedding | Stephanie & Matt

A Romantic Kings Mills Wedding | Stephanie & Matt

My cousin is married!!! To say we were looking forward to this day would be an absolute understatement!   We were so excited to have Love Story Studios capture their Kings Mills Wedding, and they did so perfectly!

Classic Details and Getting Ready with the Bride

From Stephanie’s beautiful lace gown, to the flower girls custom lace dresses to her beautiful rustic theme, not a detail was missed! I know that Stephanie has been pinning and envisioning her wedding for so many years and it was amazing to see it all come to life!

Groom Getting Ready

Meanwhile, over at Matt’s parents house, the guys were all getting ready.  It was super adorable that Stephanie’s son, Mason, helped Matt to get dressed! And you gotta love the American flag socks for this police officer!

The Story of Stephanie and Matthew

Stephanie and Matt unknowingly first met at a friends wedding. Looking back on the video and photos of the wedding, they were dancing right next to one another not knowing what their ultimate future held. It wasn’t until a few months later that each of their friend groups met up one night in Manayunk.  Steph’s friend officially introduced the two of them, and as they say, the rest is history!

On December 21st, 2016, Stephanie and Matt had plans to exchange their Christmas presents early.  Matt had a crazy work schedule and they wouldn’t be able to open their presents together on Christmas morning.  So, Matt had wrapped up the ring as one of Stephanie’s gifts. Once she opened it, she didn’t believe that it was actually happening and may have actually said no at first! She was in so much shock and tears, but of course she said YES!

A Sentimental Ceremony at St. Pius X Church

When you arrived to Steph & Matt’s ceremony, you were greeted by the bagpipes! (Seriously, not a detail was missed!) One of my personal favorite moments of the day was when the flower girl & ring bearer walked down the aisle… because they are mine! How cute were Rhys & Everly?  Then, when Mason walked down the aisle towards Matt, and Matt started to tear up, I was done! Tears everywhere!  It was such a beautiful moment!

Bridal Party Photos at Newlin Grist Mill

Stephanie and I went back and forth and looked at so many different locations for their bridal party and bride & groom portraits, and we stumbled upon Newlin Grist Mill.  It was super close to Kings Mills, and absolutely gorgeous!!  The way the sun shined through the yellow leaves on the trees on this beautiful fall day was just unreal!

The shawl that Stephanie is wearing was her great grandmothers. It was absolutely timelines and gorgeous, and we HAD to use it for a few photos! And then I draped it over my chilly shoulders during the rest of the photo time! haha!

The trust that Stephanie and Matt had during their portraits was so appreciated!  Which is why they ended up on rocks in the creek, and some of my absolute favorite photos were captured during those moments!! Plus, the way that Matt looks at Stephanie just melts my heart!

A Fun Reception at Kings Mills

The moment Stephanie walked into Kings Mills, she fell in love!  It crossed off everything on her list for her dream rustic wedding venue!  From the exposed beams, to the stone walls, the Water’s Edge ballroom was everything!  They could have their cocktail hour in the upper section of The Cove, and it later doubled as their dance floor!

A Sentimental Ceremony in the Pavilion at Scotland Run

The moment that Vince turned around and saw Gianna for the first time gave me alllll the feels! Vince tried to keep his composure as she walked down the aisle, and you could almost feel a large sigh come from him as she approached him. It was everything.  Their ceremony was short and sweet with a big cheer once they were husband and wife!

They started dating in April of 2014, and then Vince then proposed to Gianna on April 8th 2017! It happened while they were away, camping at their favorite campground surrounded by all of their family! She thought they just came for her birthday, so she was extra surprised!!

Romantic Portraits with the Bride and Groom

Vince and Gianna were so super sweet together!  There was such an ease between the two of them and gosh, the way he looks at her… Swoon!  Since their ceremony was shoot, they were able to get in a little bit of portraits time right before the sun set!  And then a little more after the sun set as well!

A Fun-filled Scotland Run Wedding Reception with all their Friends and Family

Scotland Run Golf Club is so beautiful! From their outdoor pavilion, to their new cocktail hour room (we LOVE that they added that!) to their ballroom filled with windows to see the golf course views! After fun entrances and a romantic first dance, came parent dances.  Gianna danced with her dad, and it was so special. Both of Vince’s parents have unfortunately passed, so, he asked his beautiful sister Christina to dance with him, as well as his new mother in law.  There was not a dry eye in the room.  The rest of the night consisted of laughter and dancing and celebration!!

Blue Heron Pines was the perfect venue for a lovely, rustic wedding!  Not a detail was missed! The wedding experts at Blue Heron Pines, including the brilliant Tara, were truly able to make Michele and Anthony’s dream wedding a reality!

Everyone cheered as the newlyweds were announced and they danced their first dance as husband and wife!  After parent dances, were the speeches!  We love hearing stories about our couples and what happened to get them to where they are today!!  Kyle, the best man, gave one of the best speeches we’ve heard!  He said a few funny words about the groom but THEN game show music started to play and he turned in to the host of his very own Newlywed Game! This was carefully planned out with the DJ ahead of time, and Michele was even in on it. Kyle brought the couple out to the center of the dance floor, and handed Michele her previously answered queue cards, and began a hilarious game of Newlyweds! Unfortunately, Anthony did not get a single question right! haha!
