Stephanie and Teddy’s relationship began in those awkward days of middle school; who thinks who is cute, who is willing to write them a note and actually call them on their land line at home. They had an early start at life together, then stayed together through high school and weathered a very long distance relationship through college. Their wedding was a big milestone, celebrating all the years they already have spent together and all the family and friends that have been by them through it. More importantly it marked the beginning of a new chapter for them, becoming husband and wife. Stephanie and Teddy are a wonderful compliment to each other and they are both such kind and loyal people.
After the balcony ceremony, cocktails over looked the golf course and then the guests were greeted into a reception room full of beautiful flowers. Sarah & Jon’s reception kicked off with some witty and heartfelt words my Sarah’s dad. Many of the traditional things took place, cake, toasts, special dances, but then things looked a little different as dueling pianos provided the entertainment for the evening. Yes, there was dancing like with a DJ or band, but it was very interactive and entertaining even for the guests who enjoyed sitting at their tables and visiting. My favorite request was “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” by Sarah’s nephew the ring bearer, who by the time it came up already had fallen asleep from all the fun. The vendor team of Jennifer at Salt Creek and Rachel coordinating for Lilly Lane were a dream to work with.

Wedding Pictures are family history, just part of why I love my job.
Sarah’s dad really stole the show for a while, delivering both laughs and tears.
I have to say I didn’t expect the best man “Buck” to shed tears over how great a friend Jon had been to him.
Driving down to Brown County on June 14th was beautiful, blue skies and sun shining. When we met up with Sarah and Jon they were in great spirits and so laid back. After getting ready in separate condos, they met each other for their first look in a shady spot near the creek. Sarah was simply radiant in her dress and her gorgeous smile never left her face. Tim and I enjoyed driving them in golf carts around the property for their photos, we shared many laughs. We then met up with their wedding party and family, before heading inside to cool off and rest before their outdoor ceremony begin. Right before the ceremony Sarah’s dad surprised her with a very special ring from her great-grandmother, sized just for her.
The sky was a beautiful blue and Sarah walked down the aisle with her dad to meet Jon and say their vows. A fun evening was in store after the ceremony, but that is for the next post…
