Welcome to Stephanie and Collin’s wedding day! You know how you hear the stories about meeting someone at a wedding? Well…it happened to these two. Stephanie was living in Florida and Collin in Wisconsin. But they both were at a wedding in Texas and that is where they first met. States away and over a thousand miles in between, their love story started off like a fairytale. After trying the long distance thing, Collin knew that if he really wanted to have a shot with this girl, he would have to make a big change. And so, he did. He packed up his things and headed to Florida and I think it was a perfect decision. These two are so in love and so happy together…you can’t help but smile when you are around them.
Stephanie has a daughter that is just the most adorable!! While the girls were getting ready, she snagged my camera and started taking photos…omg it was adorable!! After getting dressed, it was time for the first look and then photos!! We spent a bit of time getting all the wedding party photos taken care of before the ceremony. This made it super helpful to have a late ceremony time. Stephanie had wanted a sunset ceremony, but with sunset being around 830pm, it wouldn’t have been a little too late in the evening. So, a 6pm ceremony time was perfect. It was just the right kind of wedding and celebrated not only Stephanie and Collin, but their families and her daughter as well.
They had a tent set up just outside the clubhouse for dinner and dancing. Everyone got an old key as their party favor and name tag along with some good ole Wisconsin beer! Woohoo for Spotted Cow! The best speeches and the most amazing dances of the evening. For this wedding, it was special to be there till the very end. Collin has this family or maybe it’s just a friends or something tradition — where the last song at the wedding is always Piano Man. In which the entire crowd loudly sings together while all the men drop their drawers. LOL!! Yes, really!!! It was hilarious and wonderful at the same time.
My goodness — I think the photos will speak for themselves. Stephanie and Collin had such a wonderful wedding. And if this is a testament to their love story, I know that they are going to have fairy tales all throughout their marriage and lots of love. So many congrats to these too!!
