Steph + Brian | Married in Placerville, CA

Steph and Brian met and became great friends in high school, and Brian was actually her high school crush. But a couple years into college, they lost touch and didn’t end up reconnecting until right before their ten year reunion. Even after that, it took a little over a year of texting and making plans before they officially started dating. I love that they had both gone their separate ways, lived their own lives for a bit, and it ended up being the perfect time for them to come back together. They took a bit of a longer road to get here, so it didn’t take long once they started dating for them to realize they wanted to spend forever together! One of my favorite part of weddings is seeing the love, support and excitement from a couple’s friends and family…and everyone was SO excited for these two to get married. Steph never once stopped smiling, and her smile is incredibly infectious. How can you not be happy around her? Brian is a bit more quiet, but as we spent more time together at both their engagement session and on the wedding day, his goofy side came out and I can see why Steph is laughing all the time when they’re together. They also have these sweet, quiet moments and you can see what a strong bond they have.  I really loved getting to know them, as well as their friends and family. They’re surrounded by some really amazing people, including both of their parents who are great examples of marriage. They beamed with so much pride as they watched these two get married. It was a perfect day with tons of smiles and laughter, sweet moments, and an awesome dance party at the end. Steph and Brian, thank you so much for having me as a part of your big day! I wish you two all the best 🙂
