Mark remembers the first time he met Stacy, and she was instantly engrained in his mind. She doesn't recall their first meeting, so Mark made sure to make a good impression on her the SECOND time they met. Then she did remember him. And the rest, as they say, is history. On a beautiful day last summer, despite Stacy's softball injury and crutches, Mark convinces her to go for a walk, and asks her to marry him.
She said yes.
Their wedding day started off hazy and hot- you know, that muggy, midwestern summer HOT. And it stayed HOT. But I am not complaining- Stacy is wedding planner extraordinaire, and everything went SO smoothly and everything at the venue was gorgeous (despite the snafu about the air conditioning), every detail was perfection.
Mark and Stacy, it is a pleasure to know you two, because, seriously, you are the most gorgeous couple, inside and out. You are such open, caring, considerate, genuinely friendly people. Evah. Thanks for the opportunity to share in such a special way this huge part of your lives. I cannot wait to see you guys again! Maybe at the next baseball game..... :)
Venue: Blackberry Ridge Golf Club
Flowers: Lisa of Forget Me Not Floral Events
Stacy and Mark opted for a "first look"- since they had a late ceremony time, this allowed for LOTS of time beforehand to get most of the photos in:
Jonathan, my hubby, shot this wedding with me, since it was a little far for my usual assistant to travel: here's one from his angle:
the next two are from Jonathan's angle:
Stacy, you are absolutely glam!
Their pup, Kirby, even got to join in the fun!
Ceremony pics: Kirby got to be the ring-bearer- the cutest thing ever!
Jonathan's angle- this shot made me tear up, it's so perfect!
and one from my angle: from right to left: Stacy's step-dad, mom, and brother all made it in this shot!
