One thing I love about shooting weddings is seeing how different couples communicate love. Sometimes it’s a hug, sometimes it’s tears, sometimes it’s words. With Stephanie and Ben, it was a bit of everything. One of my favorite moments of the day was right after they saw each other in the morning. Ben gave Stephanie and kiss and said, “Don’t ever forget that I love you,” and she said simply, “I won’t.”
We also heard a little bit about their boundless good humor. When you’re volunteering, handing out water at a race, and the water is turning to ice in the cups because it’s so cold, most people would be grumpy if not flat out miserable. But Ben’s best man told a story of seeing Steph at just such a race, with a smile on her face, cheering and encouraging everyone else. He was so impressed by her, he thought Ben would need a punch in the face if he didn’t marry her!
With Ben’s face completely unscathed, Stephanie and Ben were successfully married surrounded by family and friends, who later tore up the dance floor (and gave some very practical marriage advice.) Stephanie and Ben, we’re so honored to know you. Congratulations!
