My heart is full as I write this blog post. I feel like one of my best friends just got married. Stephanie contacted me to shoot her and Connor’s engagement session in Newport, RI but we became email besties and she decided to have us come out to Delaware for their wedding day as well. Stephanie + Connor met while playing volleyball at the University of Delaware. She may have been checking him out when her friend introduced them. They dated for 4 years before Connor popped the big question. He took her to a dock across from her grandparents house which happens to be one of her favorite places. He showered her with sweet words which Stephanie admits to forgetting because she was so caught up in the moment with excitement and emotion! Connor asked her to marry him and of course Stephanie said yes!
Connor and Stephanie are both hard workers with a positive outlook on life. They both love to laugh and Connor loves how big Steph’s heart is. She is as genuine as they come. Steph loves how Connor treats every person he encounters with such sincere respect and is truly interested in everything they have to say. He is everything she could have ever hoped for. Their wedding was nothing short of amazing.
Shiloh and I had a wonderful weekend in Wilmington, Delaware. We were surrounded by Steph + Connor’s amazing family and friends who truly made you feel like part of the family. They took us in without hesitation. Stephanie got ready at her parent’s house surrounded by her girls and Connor hung out with his guys right across the street. They had their ceremony at St. Joseph’s on the Brandywine with a reception to follow at Rockwood Park Carriage House. Stephanie looked like an absolute vision in her Casablanca dress from Forever Formal. It’s delicate lace was absolutely timeless. I’m totally a sucker for lace. Connor + Steph, Shiloh and I wish you all the best in your marriage. I’m so happy we have become friends and hope to be part of your lives for years to come.
