Stephanie + Michael had a gorgeous wedding and all-around day! They chose gray suits with navy vests, navy bridesmaid dresses, and sunflower, hydrangea, and baby's breath bouquets. The fall accents all came together for a lovely ceremony and reception. I've visited Stratford Park Bible Chapel for various things over the years (I used to vote there, in fact!), but this was my first time there for a wedding. It was a beautiful church complete with a heartfelt ceremony joining Stephanie + Michael together. Following the bubble exit and quick getaway, the couple returned for a few family photos and then it was on to Robeson Park for wedding party photos. We then ventured a bit further down the road for the reception at Jupiter's at the Crossing. The upstairs floor of Jupiter's was decorated with rustic fall details, with the continuing sunflower theme and lots of twinkle lights and candles. I love how the dance floor is raised at this venue, which allows people in any part of the room to be able to see the bride and groom's first dance. Stephanie + Michael's DJ had some really cool lights set up in the back corner of the dance floor too, which perfectly complemented my style of lighting for the first dance. We are also able to sneak outside not once but twice for a few sunset images. It was a great day and evening all around -- congrats Stephanie + Michael!!
