Dee Dee + Stephen’s Wedding Day at Bear Creek Winery

Dee Dee & Stephen’s Spring wedding day showed up as a beautiful Spring day. When we arrived at the cabin where the girls were getting ready, everybody was full of smiles and laughter. Between the wedding party and her honorary bridesmaids, Dee Dee had a ton of ladies surrounding her to show their love and support. Dee Dee was sincerely glowing with happiness. She was almost giddy every time somebody would mention her husband-to-be. When we headed over to meet up with Stephen and the rest of the guys we were met with just as much happiness. Everyone was so relaxed and easygoing. Even though there was a minor moment of chaos surrounding a missing shirt, all Stephen cared about was marrying his bride. You could tell that all that mattered to both of them was that they were married and just spending the day with their loved ones.

After a few final moments to finish getting ready, it was time to head over to the chapel for their sunset ceremony. Even though they didn’t want to see each other until Dee Dee walked down the aisle, she wasn’t exactly sticking to her plan. She kept sneaking peeks out the window much to her bridesmaid’s dismay. I think she was about ready to just walk out at this point and grab him! 🙂

But finally, it was time! The large wedding party quickly made their way down the aisle. Everyone was just as excited for these two to officially become husband and wife. You could see the emotion in both of their eyes the moment Dee Dee came down the aisle with her parents. She could not wait to hug him the first chance she got and even sneak a kiss. These two couldn’t even make it to their “official” first kiss! It was such a beautiful ceremony filled with so many happy tears all around.

After the ceremony, the guests headed to the cocktail hour as we finished up some portraits with their families. Then snagged a few portraits of the newlyweds as the dusky sky fell around us. It was such a beautiful evening. Soon it was time to welcome Stephen and Dee Dee into the reception where they were met with loud cheer! Thru dinner, drinks, and dancing, everyone was having such a wonderful time. And then before it was time to go I snuck them away for a few final photos of this beautiful couple surrounded by the glow of the chapel. It was such a beautiful moment to end the night.

Congratulations again Dee Dee and Stephen! Thank you for choosing to share your amazing day with me. I’m so thankful to have met both of you and all of your favorite people!

Lots of Love,
