Sometimes there’s those fellow wedding vendor friends that you just click with, and Stephanie from Stephanie Maurie Photography is one of those friends. We were so honored to have been apart of her and Doug’s special day this past year. I remember the first time Stephanie told me all about Doug. I knew it was a relationship that was going to last. These two couldn’t be more adorable and perfect together.

Being a fellow wedding professional, Stephanie had lots of ideas of how she dreamed her florals would be for the big day. We created a custom birch ceremony arch for their outdoor ceremony and included lots of birch logs cut by the couple themselves. When Stephanie saw her bouquet for the first time she cried, which made me so happy as a florist. I put so much love and attention into each bridal bouquet, so to receive that kind of response makes it that much more worth it.

These two chose a beautiful Spring day at LeRoy Oaks Creek Bend Nature Center to celebrate with their closest friends and family. After their outdoor ceremony, guests headed up to the Nature Center for cocktails and a BBQ dinner provided by The Smoking Knife.
