“I have found the one whom my soul loves.”
-SONG OF SOLOMON 3:4
“He noticed her eyes first, those cerulean pools of infinity. She noticed his presence, warm with quiet strength.” These words from their engagement session rang true during their wedding day as Kendra and Stephen spoke the words of everlasting love, the sun peeked through the clouds, the verdant field and trees, and onto the bride and groom and their closest friends and family during a gorgeous Saturday. When their friends and family gathered around Kendra and Stephen, you can see the very meaning of true friendships right there. This wedding crew was the kindest crew ever … and funniest!
Their Graeme Park wedding day was rustic elegance exemplified — from the light capturing details on Kendra’s wedding dress to the florals and, last but not least, their tiered donut cake! Yes, please. Even when Mother Nature wasn’t sure if she should rain (she did) or shine (she did that, too), this wedding had everything a wedding should have and much more, which is everything this kind and sweet-hearted couple deserved.
Kendra and Stephen, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day — it was such an honor. Much appreciation to you both and your friends and family. – Celia & Charles
