Stephanie and Dave’s Burke Manor Inn wedding was gorgeous from start to finish! It was a day with gorgeous fall weather, stunning floral, and the sweetest first look! Stephanie and Dave wanted a very nontraditional wedding, so they included a first look at the Burke Manor and she was just beaming from ear to ear! Dave just knew exactly what to say to make Stephanie laugh the most contagious laughter!
Stephanie is a very sweet friend of Sara’s from when her daughter, Sam, and Sara went to high school together. We could not be more thankful that Stephanie and Dave asked us to photograph their wedding! Sam was Stephanie’s Maid of Honor (MOH) and Henry, her son, walked her down the aisle. During the ceremony, Dave promised Sam and Henry that as he loves their mother – he will love and be there from them as well.
They continued their nontraditional wedding theme into the reception. After Stephanie and Dave entered their reception room, they shared a heartfelt toast with their guests. Dave, thanking everything for being there and sharing memories. Jeff, Dave’s brother, and Sam sharing their loving wishes for the newly married couple! After the toasts were complete, cake would be serve! You read that right, Stephanie wanted to begin their reception with cake first. While the guest enjoyed the delicious cake, they watched Stephanie and Dave have their first dance as husband and wife.
The cutest “guest book” came from Stephanie and Dave’s favorite game to play, Jenga! Larger Jenga blocks, with their wedding day and names on it, was there for everyone to sign. As more wedding guests signed the blocks, the bigger the stack of heartfelt love for the couple became! We just adored spending our time with Stephanie and Dave on their most beautiful day!
Stephanie and Dave, we hope that you enjoy just a little sneak peak into your wedding day & that you have an amazing time on your 12 day Mediterranean cruise!
