Stephanie and Joe were married on October 15th, with a ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Westfield, MA, and a reception at the Riverview in Simsbury, CT.
These two met when their mutual friends decided to play matchmaker and set them up. After a few attempts to get together, they went to a concert, and the sparks started to fly. Fast forward to the beach in Michigan at sunset—where Joe proposed on top of the highest dune!
Stephanie and Joe were both nervous before the wedding that they would cry too much early on and look like a mess before they even got through the ceremony. Thankfully, they got most of it out during the first look. They were raw and emotional together, but it also gave them time to stabilize and ground themselves to put a lid on their emotions before they had to go out in front of their guests.
The whole day was filled with so much fun and love! In the limo ride over to pictures, the wedding party burst into karaoke, and the DJ, James Hall, was fantastic all night. At the very end of the reception, the last song played was Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.” The entire room full of guests gathered on the dance floor to encircle the new couple, holding hands as they sang and then wished them well on their way out.
Joe & Stephanie, thank you for allowing us to be part of this amazing day for both of you! You have so much love in your lives, and we wish you nothing but the best together!
