Stevie + Nick’s love is effortless. The way they met, fell in love, and live life together is seamless. Their wedding day was no different. It was a joyful, relaxed, celebration with a crazy awesome dance party! Stevie works for the Air Force and she was stationed in Italy shortly after getting engaged. Yes…not such a bad placement. :) So Stevie + Nick packed their bags for a new adventure and planned their wedding from Italy! Meanwhile I was living in Ghana, Africa so we’d coordinate skype dates with crazy time zones, power outages (on my end) to discuss the wedding details on the continent that neither of us were on..hehe quite comical as I think back on it.
Stevie + Nick share a passion for sports, good home cooked food, and most of all value their families in the most beautiful and sincere way. Their families united as they celebrated their love – the way you always hope families would. Nick is a talented song writer for Columbia Records and wrote the song “I won’t give up” – which is now sung by Jason Mraz. (Check it out! beautiful song!) Before the wedding, Stevie shared her excitement that the song for her first dance…was really her song. As they danced, Nick sang the words sweetly in her ear…the words that he wrote for his bride. There was not a dry eye in the room.
Stevie + Nick, thank you for inviting me to share in such a beautiful and love filled celebration. It was an honor to witness your love flourish deeper as you committed your lives…to walk through life together hand in hand. Much love!
The bridesmaids reaction to seeing Stevie in her dress was priceless!
