Harrold/Randall Wedding Feb 20th, 2016
Stephanie contacted me roughly 6 months prior to her upcoming Naples wedding. She and her fiancé lived in Grand Rapids Michigan but new they wanted a late winter FL wedding. Stephanie is the youngest of 3 girls, so her parents had been through the wedding process twice before and had a good idea on cost and budget. I knew Stephanie and I would get along great after our first in person meeting picking out linen and rentals.... it might have been 10am, but she offered me a drink. I knew then and there planning with her and her family would be hard work, but tremendous amounts of fun. I got to know Stephanie's parents Keith and Shelly very well over the planning process and I know that Stephanie and John have the perfect role model of a happy and loving marriage in their parents.
The first time I met Stephanie and John together I knew they were an absolute match, their personalities were a perfect balance. Stephanie is fun, energetic and bubbly and John is more laid back but is super supportive and loving. Due to the destination wedding they opted out of the traditional rehearsal dinner and hosted a fun, cocktail welcome party for everyone that came into town. Stephanie wanted elegant and romantic, and you can see by the pictures it was all that and more. .... oh and flowers. LOTS of flowers.
