Nothing says love quite like flowers, and Stephen and Stephanie’s wedding day was in full bloom! Their romantic garden wedding was an elegant affair from start to finish, featuring classic details and beautiful floral arrangements. The fresh garden feel was a perfect fit for bride Stephanie, a lover of time spent outside in the sunshine. Her fun personality and penchant for laughter are the perfect match for Stephen’s happy, low-key attitude. As a couple, Stephen & Stephanie enjoy good food, good wine, and good friends. Their day had all that and more, and we’re so excited to share it with you now!
Their touching ceremony was set at Ste. Anne’s Church, followed by wedding party photos at the Bride’s parents’ stunning property. The family gardens were inviting and warm. The scent of flowers filled the air, which made the whole experience a bit more magical. Soon we made our way to Giovanni Caboto Club for a night of dining and dancing. After an amazing feast, the couple treated guests to a sweet summer treat from Guarda Luna Gelato. From there, the band One Man Out took to the stage, and the dance floor was officially packed! Admittedly, it was missing Stephen and Stephanie briefly, as they headed outside for a dance under the stars as the night came to a close.
Stephen and Stephanie, we were honored to have captured your engagement and wedding photos! We had the best time getting to know you two. We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and fresh flowers!
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever.” – Alfred Tennyson
“Getting engaged and planning a wedding in 9 short months could have been a stressful time in our lives but we knew where we wanted to start. We wanted memories to last a lifetime and we wanted Manifesto Photography to capture every moment. We didn’t know Josh and Arica personally until our first meeting, but we left their home feeling at ease and thrilled that someone finally understood the vibe we were going for. They both took the time to get to know us; what we liked to do, liked to eat, liked to drink. Every moment that was spent with Josh and Arica was an absolute pleasure and they somehow exceeded our previous expectations upon every visit. They are beautiful people inside and out, and their amazing professional photography is only scratching the surface of their character. They definitely go above and beyond in every way. Working with the two of them has been so much MORE than we knew existed and we are forever grateful.” – Stephanie & Stephen
