Zach and Stephanie were married on June 4th, with a ceremony at the Shepherd of the Hills Catholic Church followed by a reception at the Pine Hills Country Club.
I had been looking forward to this day since I did an engagement session with these two, and when I woke up that day, I couldn’t believe it was finally happening! I loved getting to know the two of them beforehand. Zach works at Kimberly Clark, and Stephanie works at her father’s Ford dealership. I knew early on that I was going to love working with them, because Stephanie is just the sweetest bride with the most genuine smile. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the two of them. They are so much fun—and such naturals!
There were so many moments throughout the day where it was clear to me that this was a family affair. Stephanie gave her father a handkerchief embroidered with a special message that day, and one of my favorite images of the day was when she was with her grandmother during the reception. Not only that, but the bridesmaids were a hoot—so fun to work with and always smiling—and everyone who gave a toast was so sincere and heartfelt!
There was beauty to be found in the little details as well. Stephanie had the most beautiful, vibrant flowers, and both locations were absolutely stunning.
Zach and Stephanie, it was certainly a pleasure photographing the both of you as well as your family and friends. Thank you for letting me share in this joyful day. I wish you all the best as you embark on this wonderful union.
