March 16th – Our One Year Wedding Anniversary!

It’s been one year since Stephen and I walked down the aisle and said “I Do”. One year since we were scrambling to get invitations out, putting the final touches on the details for centerpieces and anything else we could possibly think of. We had an amazing group of friends, family and vendors that all came together to make our wedding such a memorable and beautiful celebration. We are forever grateful for everyone who helped and was a part our our big day!  As I think back on the whole day, I start to tear up because it really was one of the best days of my life. We prayed and prayed it wouldn’t rain and the weather could not have been more perfect (just like today)! Everything came together just how we had envisioned, and we felt so loved by everyone who came and celebrated with us.

For me, the jittery anxious feelings started on the morning of our wedding. I stayed up to finish writing my vows and miraculously slept the whole night peacefully. When I woke up, I think it finally hit both Stephen and I that we were actually getting married TODAY. It became so real and we both couldn’t wait to see each other at our first look. When we saw each other for the first time our photographers and videographers did such a great job creating an intimate space where it literally just felt like it was Stephen and I next to each other. Right after taking bride and groom portraits, we were greeted by our fantastic bridal party (all sixteen of them) and headed out to take more group photos. It felt so amazing to have close to two hundred people all at OUR wedding celebrating US. We looked out and saw so many friends and family who had been their since the beginning of our relationship and have walked with us through the ups and downs.

Stephen and I had dated for five years and within a few months of dating him, I knew I was going to marry him. He was 17 and I was 16 at the time. Our friends definitely thought we were crazy, but I just knew deep down that we were going to end up being together. Our engagement lasted ten months, and by the end of it we felt even more assured that God had brought us together for a reason. I love working alongside Stephen everyday, I love dreaming with him and I love his servant’s heart for me and those around us. I know that being a bride and groom brought us new perspective about how to tailor our own wedding photography and videography experiences to our couple’s needs. It reminded us even more the importance of quality photography and videography. We chose vendors we connected with, trusted and ones that creatively inspired us to do our jobs better. We are beyond thankful for Forestry Films and Shannon Rosan. We will always treasure the beautiful, artistic photos and video they captured of us on our wedding day, one year ago today!

Cheers to many more years of marriage and love 🙂

As a little one year anniversary gift, Stephen contacted Troy and Aimee Grover to do a little anniversary session for us. They are SO amazing and we had so much fun getting to know them and hear some of their story. We were inspired by our friends Asharae and Tim in that each year we are committed to getting in front of the camera and having our pictures taken. We can always be learning, and we feel like getting in front of the camera will give us a new perspective on how to better serve our couples 😀

    I am soooo blessed, excited, and happy that you found that "special person" in your life!!!! Seeing the two of you together really got me thinking and hoping that one day God will bless me with that person too and then obviously use you guys as video and photographers!!! lol lol lol

    I am happy that Stephen is part of our family now!! He truly seems to not only LOVE us, but is getting used to our ways we act and communicate in an Italian family!!! Hopefully at first meeting and getting to know him we (or Zia Shirley or Zia Annie) didn’t scare him away.

    The photos of you two LITERALLY reminded me of not only your invites, but also the pics of you two when you were first dating!!!! They ALL are EXTREMELY CUTE!!!!

    Plus, its nice for once to see you guys in front of the camera, whereas I am used to seeing you behind it capturing all the magic work you two put together!!!!

    All in all, just LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

    Come down to visit and maybe we could go to Disneyland. I have a pass now!!!

    Either call, text, or message me on Facebook!!! Just to hear from you and see how you are doing, and hopefully plan a trip of somesort together!!!!

    I heard that you saw the pics of our pets and thought they were just ADORABLE!!!! Well if you two come down, you could actually see them in person!!!! Ginger would LOVE you guys!!! Meanie, eh not so much!!! He can be stubborn at times!!!
