Stephanie & Joey’s Wedding

Stephanie and Joey’s wedding was quite simply…fabulous! We had the wonderful opportunity of working with Ruffles & Rouge from the Knoxville area as well as my friend Erin from Be True Designs. Every single detail was thought out and just beautiful. It was full of the personality of Stephanie and Joey, and the day brought so many smiles and even tears to my eyes.

It was an amazing day, with an amazing couple who are so in love and so perfect for each other…it made our jobs easy. This spectacular wedding was held at St. John Neumann Catholic Church with a reception at The Fox Den Country Club.

A HUGE congratulations to Stephanie and Joey. Thank you so much for asking us to be a part of your day…we hope you love you images as much as we loved working with you.

Stephanie and Joey…

What did you enjoy most about planning your wedding?
We enjoyed working together, analyzing every detail, and realizing this one huge event was just about the two of us spending the rest of our lives together.

What was your favorite detail of the wedding?
Joey and I decided to have a “first look” prior to the wedding so that we could take as many pictures as possible before the ceremony.  Grant and Sara chose the perfect setting, and we absolutely loved that moment when we saw each other for the first time.

How did you decide on your dress?
The dress I chose happened to be the fourth dress I tried on, which is my favorite number. I knew I wanted something close to that style, and I absolutely loved the dress as soon as I put it on at Bridals by Lori.  My mom, Joey’s mom, my sister, and my grandmother were there for me on my big day, making it even more special.

What are three words you would use to describe your day?
Beautiful, Anxious, Perfect

What was the most memorable moment about your wedding day?
Erick Baker, our favorite music artist, played at our reception and performed our first song.  We both will never forget that moment.

What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future?
Two days after we returned from our honeymoon, we packed up our lives and moved to Dallas, Texas.  Now that we are living in a new state in our new apartment, we are looking forward to experiencing new things and enjoying our life together.  For now, we are most looking forward to relaxing after the past few months of craziness!
