When you are a friend, a bridesmaid and the wedding planner! Eeek – talk about pressure! I loved this wedding and am so glad I get to share these special images. I have known Aimee for pretty much my entire life. We were friends before we even hit Sub A and we have been friends ever since. Aimee and Stephen have been together forever and our whole group of friends were really excited for their wedding day.
Aimee was the most chilled bride and I often had to remind her that her wedding was fast approaching, and that we needed to make some plans. Stephen took on the role of bride AND groom at some points and had Aimee and I in stitches while he went through every contract and piece of paper with a fine tooth comb (Generally, Stephen is super laid back, but the wedding bug had clearly bitten him) But high five Stephen, you did well.
Their ceremony was sweet and personal, and Aimee’s niece and our friend Megan’s little girl Sienna, were the two cutest flower girls. They were surrounded by close family and friends, many who had made a large effort to be there. Stephen’s eyes welled up when he saw his beautiful wife walk down the aisle. We all cheered when they kissed and tossed rose petals as they walked towards their new life together.
Matt took some great photos of the bridal party and the couple photos are just gorgeous. I already have a few up in our home.
The speeches were insanely sweet, funny and emotional. Aimee’s lovely dad and sister said some beautiful words and Stephen’s twin brother had the entire wedding in fits of laughter when it was his turn. The couple opted for a cocktail style wedding, so we brought Mon Ami in to make sure no one went hungry. Stephens family took care of the dessert station and put a lot of care and effort into it. The reception was a lot of fun and all of our friends danced and sang to Bon Jovi (as you do when he comes on) and made memories and bad dance moves to last us a lifetime.
To the amazing couple, my friends, Aim and Stephen. I wish you all the love and happiness that this world has to offer. I cannot wait to watch you two start a life and a family together. I just know you will make the most of it and I am so happy that I will be apart of it.
Much love! xxx
