This couple is so near and dear to my heart! Emily reached out to me over a year ago, she was referred to me my a friend, Jena! We scheduled a meeting at Starbucks and I was pleasantly surprised that Stephen came with her! We chatted over coffee and when we left I felt like I had two new friends! We scheduled their engagement session and that is where I really got to know them! We laughed a lot (they told me they didn’t know how to pose and were awkward), we talked jobs, family, and life. When Emily called me a couple months later to tell me they decided to move their wedding to Florida, I had no hesitation to tell them I would be there!
Emily and Stephen’s day was nothing short of perfection! The girls all got ready at Emily’s parents Air BnB. When I arrived they were getting their hair done, make-up done, drinking mimosas, laughing, and just truly enjoying the day! Simple pale pink and white roses with babies breath from Bee Ridge Florist made for simply perfect bouquets! The bridesmaids wore pale pink dresses from Azazie. They all chose their style, all wearing short dress, except the maid of honor, who wore a long dress. The boys bowties also came from Azazie and their suits and shoes came from Men’s Wearhouse! They were a good looking group! The bride had her hair and make-up done by friends from back home, who came all the way from Canada for her wedding. How special is that! These girls were all special to Emily and you could see the strength of each friendship through their interactions! I think these bridesmaids could win an award for the cutest bridal party! They lounged in these floral robes until it was time to get their dresses on! Stunning doesn’t even begin to describe how Emily looked on her wedding day! Stephen and Emily were married by Pastor John Hunn who traveled from Tennessee to preform their ceremony. After the ceremony they hopped onto a party bus to head to the beach for photos! The beach was PACKED with people who all cheered and congratulated them as we took pictures! The love between these two is undeniable! The way Stephen looks at Emily… you know she is his love! This bridal party provided so many laughs and were so easy going! They made my job easy and FUN! After pictures we headed back to The Devyn for the reception! A night full of toasts, a delicious dinner, dancing, and DONUTS (there was a beautiful cake too!) The DJ, Stephen Warenchak kept the party going! Ending the evening with a perfect sparkler exit from the party! Congrats Emily and Stephen Fisher! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
