I’ve written and re-written this post so many times, I think I am getting carpal tunnel.But no fear, that’s a good thing. This wedding has so much depth , meaning and personal feelings, it’s hard to find the words to attach to it. It’s like, where do you even begin?

 Do you mention how you’ve known them for years? Or the fact you’ve worked with Mike, on event  after event when he was the MC at a wedding and you were the photographer? Or perhaps that time Steph was in the bridal party of her friends wedding you photographed and now that role is reversed?

Those are all good ways, but to be honest, I just plain love this couple. Our friendship  is the kind where you just get each other. Things just make sense, just like Steph and Mike… they just make sense. Two selfless people coming together and making it official . Which, anyone who knows them, has been written in the stars for years.So much so , you can’t remember a time before it.

It’s a truly rare and wonderful thing to witness two people come together with as much love and reverence for one another as these two have for each other.

Steph and Mike:

Thank you for allowing Dave, Nick and I to be a part of your day and sharing in all the moments that transpired in between

I also want to give a huge shoutout to Windows on the Water for being so helpful and making sure everything ran smoothly
And Sounds to Go, for getting everyone up and dancing – but when the groom is the owner, it’s kind of expected it will be amazeballs
