As You Wish…
Well, I already adored Stacey and Phil, but when I learned that they were having a Princess Bride wedding at Mt. Woodson castle, that pretty much cinched the deal! 🙂 These two are beyond grateful to have found each other in this life. You can see it in every little smile and bout of laughter that fills their space. It’s a contagious and beautiful thing! Stacey and the girls were having a grand ol’ time hanging out and starting the day off with a little celebratory Mumm (representing Nor Cal there) and reminiscing of all the crazy history they’ve shared.
Love all these sweet and pretty details! Stacey carried her dad with her down the aisle on her striking bouquet that the talented Dawn Stone of Embellishmint created. And how neat is her signature perfume for the day? Phil had that prettiness created on their trip to Disneyworld. So great! And then it was time for the dress… always such an emotionally charged moment of the day! Orrrrrrrrrrrr… you can be like Stacey and just swish around and giggle with complete and total giddiness. I’m sure you can see why I adore her! And one last cheers before heading out the door to meet her love. Meanwhile, Phil is trying to “keep his cool” as he eagerly awaits their First Look. 😉 And still doing a good job of maintaining as captain of the ship… Love it when mom stops by to see her son before the day gets going. A little encouragement from mom is always a good thing. And then they meet up to get connected and face the day together. Always adore First Looks and love how our couples totally allow themselves to get lost in each other for awhile!
These two are seriously the sweetest with each other. It’s no mystery!Pretty much my favorite thing in the world—these micro-seconds during First Looks when a couple takes in every little detail and savors it. What a fun and wonderful group of people! Stacey and Phil were really surrounded by a good support team. Oh, You Pretty Things. Dawn of Embellishmint has such a lovely style and creates so much prettiness! And the big moment arrives! Bethel of Ceremonies by Bethel always creates such a unique and personalized ceremony that really hits home for the couple and everyone there to witness their relationship. Phil had to catch his breath before going into his vows. Love how emotionally honest both of them are! Um, yes, Stacey and Phil’s families are truly as loving and sweet as they appear here. Such wonderful people! HOORAY! MARRIED!!! Like, REALLY married!! 😉
Bethel loves to take a few minutes after the ceremony to make the couple slow down for a second and realize the gravity of what just took place. Stacey kind of killed us on this one! More pretty things to set the tone. So, so gorgeous! And do please take note of the cake topper. PERFECTION. <3
Love that moment above before Stacey and Phil walked in and of course they were in the background cheering on their bridal party as they all made their entrance. That’s just how they ROLL! And then it was time for some meaningful and fun-filled toasts, which obviously, people got a kick out of. CHEERS!!!!! As the sun dipped down below the horizon, it was time to bring the party inside for some dance party USA time. Naturally, the happy couple kicked things off. Teehee!
LOVE <3 <3 <3 From the outside looking in… DJ Matt Phipps kept the party going all night. Things were happenin’!! OH, YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! Dear Stacey and Phil—thank you so very much for inviting us to be a part of your special day and bringing us in with open arms. You two are such kind and special people and so much fun (to boot!!!)! It’s my favorite 🙂 To Stacey and Phil’s family and friends, please be sure to sign their gallery guestbook to be kept up to date on gallery release and print specials. The finished gallery will be available in a few weeks.
