I’ve known Stephenie for almost a decade now. Sitting here writing this I can’t even believe that its been that long! I met her because she used to babysit my niece and we had a few mutual friends. Fast forward to August of last year and I was getting an email saying that she met this awesome guy named Chris and that she was engaged! Immediately we got to picture talking and I was honored to be shooting their Pearl S Buck Estate Wedding. The wedding day came around and I stepped into prep and Steph was cool as a cucumber, just wanting to relax and not worry about the typical wedding craziness. She just wanted to get in her dress and see her future husband, Chris.
We headed on over to the Pearl S. Buck Estate, where Chris and the guys were waiting. We did the first look and managed to get some bridal party portraits in before the rain came. When it did come, we caught back! Steph and Chris toughed it out and said as long as we have an umbrella let’s get it done. We got some awesome shots in and managed to still make it to the ceremony before the guests were able to see the bride and groom. During the ceremony Chris decided to surprise Steph with not just one wedding band, but two of them, they weren’t even married yet and he was ace-ing the husband role already!
Once the ceremony came to a closing and Steph and Chris tied the knot, we headed across the estate property to an amazing tented reception. Check out some highlights from the big day! Thank you to Nick for second shooting on this wedding!
