It seemed that their paths couldn’t be farther apart… But fast forward a few years, and life had taken a magical twist. They had both dedicated themselves to lives of service. She had completed her training as a nurse and begun her career in medicine, and he had completed his military service and begun his career as a firefighter and paramedic. One holiday season their paths finally crossed, and they soon realized they had met their missing piece. A year later, on Christmas eve, he popped the question to the girl of his dreams…
Meet Stephanie and Adam.
The bride started her day with a sweet message and gift from the groom.
Stephanie filled her day with pops of red color, roses, and details…
Love this moment with the bride and her two adoring flower girls!
Matt was with Adam to get some shots of him getting ready.
These ring bearers are too cute!
The wedding was held at Christ the King Catholic Church…the same church where the bride’s parents got married over 30 years ago.
Stephanie and Adam waited to see each other, but decided to share a prayer before the ceremony. It was a beautiful and emotion filled moment.
The bride shared a first look with her father…walking down the same aisle her mother walked down. It was one of the sweetest first looks we’ve seen!
Love these little special moments!
The classical feel of this wedding was perfect for the beautiful cathedral and surroundings…
Before the sun went down, the bride and groom got away for a few minutes, and these photos of the newlyweds at sunset are some of my favorites.
Love how happy these two are!
At the end of the night, the couple shared a final private dance. It was a perfectly romantic ending to the day…
Stephanie and Adam,
We are so happy for you two! We are elated that you found each other, and that you are starting out this adventure of marriage! We hope that you share many years of happiness and that your wedding always brings you the best of memories. Cheers to a lifetime of bliss! -Matt and Ivy
