Pictures surrounded the homes and reception of their prom night, travels, family holidays, their cats, adventures, the proposal, and their engagement. While this was the day that they would promise to spend the rest of their lives by each others side, it was clear to every wedding guest that Shelby and Stephen had already built the most magical life together.
Everywhere you turned on the wedding day, family and friends were reminiscing and recounting stories about Stephen’s humor or Shelby’s laid-back and slightly serious personality. Everyone said the same thing – Shelby and Stephen were complete opposites but in the best way. They balance each other out and keep each other grounded. Even on a day that is normally associated with chaos and stress, they took the time to pull each other back into the moment and enjoy their first day as husband and wife to the fullest.
Shelby and Stephen, your day was so full of joy, love, and gorgeous fall color and I am so honored to have had the privilege of documenting your first day as husband and wife. You both have the deepest hearts and kindest souls and I cannot wait to see where life takes you! xx, M
