Oh where to even begin with this gorgeous, meaningful, fun, stylish, curated, elegant, October wedding, recently featured on Style Me Pretty! Stephanie and Max were such a dream couple to work with - Stephanie caught my attention immediately, even from our initial phone call, with her descriptions and vision of clear-top tents, farm tables, linen runners and candlelight, and neutral and grey bridesmaids dresses from Jenny Yoo in crepe de chine fabrics. Add to this a Vera Wang gown, calligraphy and full paper goods by Stephanie B Design, florals and greenery from Sweet Root Village, and film photography by Julie Paisley, and I knew this would quickly turn into one of my favorite weddings of my career.
Not only was Stephanie the kind of bride who was incredibly in tune with the details (even down to the kind of twine we chose for the menu cards), she is truly the sweetest and most lovely person, and she and Max were so relaxed and calm leading up to and on their wedding day. It is sometimes so easy to be swept up in the tiny details and ideal perfection of everything when planning, but this New York City couple always wisely realized the true meaning and reason behind their wedding day. It rained all morning the day of the wedding and misted throughout the outdoor ceremony, but we rolled with it and held the ceremony outside regardless. When we had to shift the timeline a bit during the reception, they didn't bat an eye. They truly enjoyed the entire day - the details we had worked so hard to style and curate, the quality time spent with their closest family and friends, and the gorgeous scenery of Max's family farm in the Plains, Virginia.
I could easily write ten more paragraphs on this wonderful couple and their beautiful wedding but will let you scroll through the photos and video and see for yourselves! Steph and Max, love to you both!
