Holy crap you guys, I don’t even know where to start with these two! All I can say is thank goodness for A Moment in Time for being the best matchmakers in the biz, because I feel like I was meant to work with these two! They’re hilarious, the coolest people and so, so in love.
I met Stephanie at her hotel and I could literally feeeeeel her anxiousness. All she wanted to do was see D.A. After privately getting into her dress with her Mom (which absolutely adored) and a quick first look with her stepdad, she finally got to see her groom. And it was amazing. And hilarious. Just as it should be :)
Seeing Stephanie’s woodland boho wedding come to life literally blew.my.mind. A 20 foot teepee, gold dipped feathers, candelabras as far as the eye could see! Rich jewel tones, vintage goblets and even a custom hashtag pillow adorned their private venue.
Their ceremony was perfection. They were married by a friend literally surrounded by all of the important people in their lives. And then it was on to the party, and party they did! So much fun, so many laughs and so much fireball made for an amazing celebration I won’t soon forget.
Steph & D, thank you so much a million times for being you! Like seriously you guys are the best and my heart feels so full as I type this! Congrats you two! Xo, e

Their Wedding in 3 words: Magical, Breathtaking, FUN
Stephanie’s favorite memory of the day:
My favorite memory of the day would have to be walking through the gates, up the little hill and through the massive crowd of guests. Walking down the middle of the guests, seeing everyone I loved surrounding D.A. and I was such a special moment that I feel like I will never forget. There was so much LOVE in that moment.
D.A.’s favorite memory of the day:
I would have to say that right after we kissed, looking out into the crowd of family and friends to see them all with giant genuine smiles on their face was an awesome feeling.
Wedding planning advice for newly engaged couples:
HIRE JEN HOUSE AND TEAM!!!!!!!!! No, seriously. Hire a wedding a planner, even if it’s just for the day-of. Knowing Jen House and her team had my back the entire wedding planning process was a huge relief. It really allowed D.A. and I to spend time being engaged and being in the moment each and every single day leading up to our wedding. I know a wedding planner may not be in everyone’s budget and if that’s the case, just remember that it is so important to feel that love for each other every day, no matter what. Wake up like you got engaged every single day.

A little extra from the couple:
We also had the best photographer in the entire world, which was so awesome for the wedding and for the engagement session. I feel like I am SUPER AWKWARD in photos and was so worried about coming off that way in pictures, but Erin literally made it so easy for me and for D. She loosened us up and had suggestions for us to make us look cool but she also listened to what we wanted to have pictures of and then put her own stamp on it. I wouldn’t change ONE THING from the day we got engaged to the day we left the wedding on a shuttle. It was the best time of my life. I am crying as I’m writing this…..
