Walking into the suite at Hampton Inn on Stephanie’s big day, I saw the large “BRIDE” balloons above the headboard and the cute little mimosa bar set up and I could tell this day was going to be gorgeous and fun.

Matthew and the guys went out to the golf course early in the morning and played 9 holes in a scramble – we met them on the course for a few shots. Then the ladies got ready in the suite together – I loved that even though it was mid-September, Stephanie still went with a burgundy and navy blue look – it’s the perfect transition color into fall.

The sky was overcast and the weather very pretty as we took photos of the ladies and men outside before the ceremony. There was rain – but it was perfectly timed during the ceremony and cleared up by the time formal photos started of the wedding party and couple.

Some of the elements I loved from this day – their neon sign, Stephanie’s gorgeous smile and laugh, Stephanie wearing her hair down and the motion that brings, the amazing cake, and the wafers that went on top of the signature drinks to represent their two dogs who were at the wedding in spirit!

I loved hearing their personal vows – they met in college at UPJ and got engaged at home after a night out at one of their favorite restaurants, Village Inn.

These two made time for a special sunset sneak out where they could be by themselves and take in the whole day and I loved when Matthew picked Stephanie up and spun her around. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for photography and these two had such sweet spirits – I am honored to have been their photographer.

Note to the couple:
Stephanie and Matt, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
