Their love story:
Stephanie and Juanito went to the same high school, but never seen one another until they met through mutual friends around a year after high school; since then have been together for seven years! Their anniversary has now become their wedding date, and forever may it be special and memorable to them!
Stephanie and Juanito are truly both amazing people. When I first met them, which was in the very beginning of this whole wedding career, I was slightly intimidated with how confidant they were as a whole. They walked with one another with such confidence and assurance, there was no missing how comfortable they were together as a couple. When I was finally able to work with them on their engagement session, I was stunned. They were the exact couple I ever dreamed of working with. Their engagement photos were amazing and I knew their wedding would be nothing less then spectacular! Several months after their engagement session, we were all finally making those last minute adjustments for their big day; I could not believe it. I met up with Stephanie a couple times for ordering and planning, and I could not believe how happy she was. All my brides are happy, but she just radiates beyond all belief; I didn’t think she could be any happier, that is, until I seen her on her wedding day lol!! She giggled and laughed and smiled so much I couldn’t help but be as happy as she was; all day! The groom; nervous, seemed a little scared at first when we arrived but once we got to talking and his boys showed up you could see the excitement just grow, and the happiness in his smile just radiate throughout!! The day was starting out wonderfully. The guys were great, the weather was great, we were on time, and everything was wonderful. When we left the guys to head over to their venue, every light pole and street sign had a purple balloon on it. I am more then sure it was for a special event in the downtown Stockton area, but I absolutely loved the serendipity in it. Their wedding colors were purple, and even better was that as soon as you left their home it was on every pole till you hit the freeway! It at least made me smile for the couple! Once on the road only blocks away from The River Mill, my hubby and I noticed a bunch of things in the street……we got closer and…I couldn’t help but get excited and laugh. At this point I think Stephanie has really worn off on me with how happy and giggly I was. There was at least a dozen goats running all over the street. It looked beautiful how they were escaping with the amazing landscape and beautiful clouds. Quick pictures in the collages below. Soon after, we met up with the bride and got very busy with taking pictures. The wedding party was amazing with helping out and they handled my requests wonderfully!!! Stephanie and Juanito should be really thankful, as am I, that they did so great or else we wouldn’t have as great of pictures! Helping hands are amazing, and smiling faces look even more amazing!! Stephanie was never once, EVER, even an ounce of bridezilla. She was the sweetest person the entire day; making sure to take time to think of the people around her. Even when a few things went wrong during their ceremony, she didn’t bust out the bridezilla. Their ceremony was beautiful. The custom portraits were AMAZING and we got everything that we both wanted! The reception was a blast to capture!! The dinner was so yummy, and thank you so much you two for feeding us! Overall; amazing, amazing aaaaaaaaamazing wedding!!!! I am so in love with these two and how well everything turned out, that I simply could not limit this blog; it had to be shared for the masses. If you read this, please leave comments.
