Stephanie & Jeff : Married

The room was quiet. Random bridal items were scattered around - a dress hanging here, some shoes laying there, the kids table crayons on the floor, nothing in any real order. The beautiful November light beamed through the window and there was Stephanie, gorgeous and calm, literally illuminating the room with her presence. It was as if she had done this before, it was as if she already knew the day would be perfect.

As Stephanie spotted Jeff overlooking the ocean at the picturesque Terranea Resort for their first look, she squealed with excitement. She rushed toward him as if she was saving all her energy for this very moment. Jeff stood there waiting for his bride and as he turned around, they both emotionally embraced. It was as if they knew seeing each other before the ceremony would be the start to their perfect day. And it was.

The rest of the day was spent exchanging rounds of warm hugs and thank-you’s with their guests. After some heartfelt toasts and a few rounds of shots Jeff and Stephanie spent the evening starting the first day of the rest of their lives together. And I had the honor of capturing their day. A huge thank you to Kathy Recchia of Save The Date Events for coordinating the day to flow as smoothly as possible. And a special thanks to my favorite Ashley Rose for helping me out. It was fabulous working with you both! Steph and Jeff, I've said it before but I'll say it again, I love you guys! Thank you for letting me be a part of your day and I wish you both love, happiness and a lifetime of blessings. xoxo

Steph's mother was beaming as she watched her daughter dance around in her dress. Loved their connection.





Stephanie is a knockout. Goodness Jeff, you are a lucky man!







My favorite 2 shots of the day. I'm already thinking of places to hang them, in MY house, as canvases. Hope my husband doesn't mind!











Floral Art was on hand for all of the stunning flowers.
