Stephanie & Christian | 6.16.18 Dorothy B Oven Park Wedding Tallahassee, FL

Jul 26, 2018

Every once in awhile, a bride comes along and you wish that you hadn’t wasted so many years not being friends with them already!  Stephanie is just a joy to be around, and despite planning a wedding fairly quickly because of an upcoming move to Pennsylvania, she was so relaxed and sweet to work with.  Tallahassee will miss you!  It was only fitting that when we met Christian, we figured out why she was so smitten with him – he’s a wonderful guy, and they are perfectly suited for each other.  They’re the kind of couple that makes you realize the cliches CAN be true!  (plus Christian loves Seinfeld and always has a great quote to throw out)

It was a dream working with you, and even though it poured rain while you were getting ready, you didn’t panic.  And you were rewarded with a gorgeous, dry, and somewhat cooled off day.  There’s nothing better!

I couldn’t love their First Look more!  Look at Stephanie’s face back there!



















I loved their little display of seeds and bug repellent wipes.  The signs said “Let Love Grow” and “Be Smitten Not Bitten”:



I have no words for how awesome these handkerchiefs are!


Stephanie’s uncle walked her down the aisle – it was definitely a touching moment:








There were lots of adorable smiles throughout the ceremony, like this one!







It was a wedding fit for a fascinator!




Using an hourglass for the sand ceremony has become popular, but I don’t think people realize that it would take an hour for all the sand to get to the bottom!  😉 








Real Paella is more than just a caterer, they are an experience!  It was so cool to watch the different stages of this coming together, and I can also vouch that it tasted amazing:










I wish I had a video of exactly how this toast went down…but I think it’s clear to see that these guys have a sense of humor.  Demented maybe…but it’s definitely there!





We couldn’t find anyone to snag our picture of 4, but we got one of the ladies!  We love you guys, save move to PA!
