There is one word I can use to describe Stephanie + Bobby's wedding day -- JOY! This couple was enamored with each other the whole day (and at their engagement session, too!), and you couldn't help but feel their happiness. They are so genuine and have friends and family that are equally so, including some family that flew in all the way from Korea for the wedding. I have several favorite parts of the day, but I especially loved Stephanie's smile, Bobby seeing Stephanie for the first time coming down the aisle, traveling all over campus for the wedding party and couple photos, and the bouquet being accidentally tossed to the DJ (LOL!). One other highlight was visiting Seven Saints and the exact table where they had their first date! I mean, how cute is that?!
We started the day at the iHotel where Stephanie and her bridesmaids were getting ready, then it was on to St. John's Catholic Newman Center for the ceremony. Following the portraits around campus, we headed back to iHotel for the beautiful lavender, peach, and gold reception. #perfectlyporter
