Stella and Geoff met in their second year of college. What started off as a group of friends going to lunch together quickly led to a close one-on-one friendship. Geoff would hide little written notes in Stella’s binder, and it didn’t take long for Stella to fall for Geoff’s thoughtful and kind personality. Shortly after they realized they should start dating, they realized they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. You can see their dreamy engagement photos by clicking here.
Stella started her wedding day off with her closest girlfriends, mimosas in hand. Her Allure Bridal gown had been calling her name since she got up that morning… she could not wait to put it on! Feeling gorgeous and ready to see her soon-to-be husband, Stella had an important pitstop to make, a first look with her dad. Everyone in the room was crying (me included) as her Dad’s eyes filled with tears of joy as he set his eyes on his little girl looking so stunning on her big day.
Geoff and his groomsmen got ready together as a chilly rain fell outside. They donned charcoal Calvin Klein suits pulled together with burgundy ties that matched the bridesmaids’ bouquets. As they finished getting suited up, the rain clouds began to break, and we were able to grab a few photos on the shimmering streets before leaving for St. Mary’s Parish.
After Stella and Geoff walked down the aisle and said their “I do’s“, the wedding party left for John R. Park. The old barns and rustic house on the property served as the perfect backdrop for an autumn, romantic-feeling photo shoot. The weather was moody but lent us the most gorgeous light!
The reception at Ciociaro Club was attended by their closest friends and family. There were lots of happy tears, laughter, and heartfelt speeches. Everyone had a great time celebrating Stella and Geoff. The evening ended with great tunes from Celebrity Music and upbeat dance moves that even the youngest guest could appreciate.
Stella and Geoff, congratulations on your marriage! We had such a great time getting to know you both through your engagement session and wedding. We wish you both the absolute best in the days ahead as Husband and Wife!
