I clicked with Stevie + Kevin from the moment I got their inquiry about booking their wedding with me. Stevie's entire email was sprinkled with so much excitement and enthusiasm for creativity, beautiful photos, and of course her fiance and love of her life, Kevin. I love the way she told me about their relationship:
"We both attended the same elementary, middle & high school since my move to the area at age 9. We were always so close to meeting but so many years would pass until we were truly introduced into each others lives. Call it whatever you will but I really believe fate had its perfect moment for us and it wasn't meant to be a moment too soon. Instantly there were sparks & our friendship developed quickly into something more. We were just kids, maybe, but the understanding we had of each other without even saying a word was something else."
From their effortless engagement shoot at Fonthill castle, through the excitement of planning and hearing all of Stevie's updates of new, fun, details she was incorporating into her wedding, and the occasional silly and exciting texts both before and after the wedding, we managed to meet as complete strangers and leave as friends. Stevie + Kevin's wedding has easily become one of my all time favorite weddings. I love all the unique, creative touches they added throughout the day that so perfectly represented Stevie + Kevin both individually and as a couple (the bouncy castle, piggie cufflinks, rainbow confetti, pizza, and the handmade altar out of windows that Kevin made (what!!) as well as the unplanned highlites of the day like the gorgeous floral adorned swing (gifted from Bloom Flower Co.), the ushers in matching crazy suits, and the surprise dog that showed up during cocktail hour for pizza and hugs.
