Stephany and Jeff, who went to high school together and met online, were married on January 19, 2019.
Stephany looked radiant in a sleeveless ballgown that featured a V neckline, deep V back, lace bodice and straps, and a full embellished skirt with a train. She accessorized with drop earrings, a crystal bracelet, and a full-length train. Her bouquet was composed of a variety of white flowers accented with eucalyptus leaves. Her three bridesmaids wore sparkly full-length champagne-colored gowns with spaghetti straps and V necklines, and carried modified versions of the bride’s bouquet.
Jeff got married in a gray suit with a white vest, white shirt, white tie, white pocket square, and white flower boutonniere. His three groomsmen wore gray suits with gray vests, white shirts, champagne-colored ties, champagne-colored pocket squares, and white flower boutonnieres.
During the ceremony, the officiant shared the story of the couple’s engagement. The newlyweds performed a unity candle ceremony to signify their marriage.
Later, guests dined on a mixed-greens salad with julienned carrots, pear tomatoes, and house vinaigrette dressing with a Parmesan crisp; grilled chicken; flatiron steak; creamy mashed potatoes; mixed steamed vegetables; and tortellini primavera. There were also three signature cocktails: the Island Ice Tea, the Maui Blue, and the Hawaiian Sunset.
In the speeches, the best man told the couple that it is a privilege having them in his life. The matron of honor spoke about her 13-year friendship with the bride. Jeff’s mother welcomed Stephany to the family. Stephany’s father thanked everyone for coming and told his daughter that she made the right decision in choosing Jeff.
Stephany and Jeff’s first dance was to “Tangled Up in You” by Staind. Stephany and her father danced to “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw, and Jeff and his mother danced to “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Other wedding fun included a chocolate fountain and a photobooth.
The four-tier white wedding cake had two plain layers and two done in a damask print. Each layer had a white ribbon around the base. The cake was decorated with flowers and a classic bride-and-groom topper.
The newlyweds left their special day under the signature sparkler send-off.
We hope that the happy couple share a long and beautiful life together!
