Stephanie & Jordan, August 10, 2019, Old Daley on Crooked Lake
Boy oh boy, we are getting some pretty EPIC weddings lately and this one right here ranks up there as a TOP 10! We knew from the moment we sat down with Stephanie and Jordan, this would be a killer wedding. Stephanie is a very detailed girl and didn’t leave any stone unturned for this wedding, and Jordan; well, he comes from a pretty awesome family who we’ve had the pleasure of photographing on many wedding dance floors over the years. We were so excited to start their day. First we arrived at Old Daley on Crooked Lake, where Stephanie and her girls had the entire building to themselves to get ready. The couple exchanged notes ahead of time and we spent some quite moments of her reading her Groom’s letter. Stephanie got dressed with the help of her mom and then had 2 first reveals; with her bridesmaids, and then an awesome first reveal with her dad; with her mom and sisters looking on. After doing Bride and Bridesmaid photos, we headed over to St. Augustine’s Church and met up with Jordan and his guys for more pics. Jordan’s parents were on hand and we were delighted seeing them since we’d photographed them as guests at so many weddings. Stephanie arrived in her transport soon after and the couple were married in a Ceremony in front of about 180 guests. After their I Do’s the couple did a grand bubble exit outside of the church. We then all made our way back to Old Daley for pics of the entire wedding party, the family and then our time with the couple. These two have the best smiles and their love gaze for each other is truly sentimental. The grand ballroom was classically decorated in whites and blues and DJ Fernando was on hand to get the party started. What a dance floor!!! It was packed the entire evening. The sky had some interesting clouds for some more portraits and the couple practiced their choreographed dance which made for some wonderful shots. Before we headed out for the night, the wedding party and close family and friends gathered outside for a sparkler pic with the couple. It was one awesome day! Thank you so much Steph and Jordan for the honor of photographing your wedding day. We left feeling like we were more part of the family than your photographers. We know you two will have many blessed years with each other. Congrats again and much love!
