Dreamy Boho Ponte Vineyard Inn Wedding – Stephanie + Brian

If you can’t already tell by the photo above, this wedding was all sorts of cool, met with dreamy, a little boho, a touch of fall, and one super rad bride who is also a fellow artist and had the most beautiful heart! She was one of those clients that the vendor team was texting about after the wedding, saying things like “It’s brides like Stephanie that fill our hearts with joy and fulfillment and remind s why we do what we do.” We all adored these two to their core, and I’m still get all the feels looking back at their photos from this past weekend.

When I arrived to Stephanie’s bridal suite in the morning, the room was filled with joy and peace. I was able to meet all of her bridesmaids and her mom right from the beginning and they were so inviting and kind. I gathered her details to start shooting them while she finished up hair and makeup, and she put so much thought into every tiny piece that it was so fun styling everything!

Stephanie got dressed with just her mom, sister, and niece in the room and her bridesmaids all patiently waited to see her. They did a first look together once she was all ready, and it was the cutest moment!!

While all the ladies did a few portraits outside, Brian put the finishing touches on his groom look. He and his best guy friends wore a classic black and white suit with some stylish brown leather shoes, complete with fabulous boutonnieres hand assembled by the Carla Kayes herself!

The ceremony was adorned with florals in neutrals and deep burgundies for the touch of fall that Stephanie was going for, and that pampas grass stole my heart!!! Loren James of Four Things Paper also made the cutest ceremony sign for these two to set at the aisle entrance.

I also got to see one of my past #JennaJosephBrides of 2014!! Natascia and Sean hired me to be their wedding photographer just a few years ago and they are the whole reason I was graced with the honor of photographing Stephanie and Brian’s wedding this past weekend (along with Kristin + Matt’s wedding in 2015 whom they also connected me to!!). I just love them and it was so good to see them again!!

Everyone got seated, in style might I add, with these super cute parasols provided by Ponte Vineyard Inn.

Brian Stoddard began the processional song, and then Stephanie came down the stairs from afar and met Brian at the aisle. They both had so much joy in their eyes!

And they’re married!!!

THIS.. this photo below was totally candid. They were standing there right after the ceremony and kissed like this underneath the arch as if I set this up. It couldn’t have been more perfect!

When it was time for portraits of just the two of them, their love overflowed and radiated in the sweetest way. Just posing them close to each other and seeing the way they whispered their love to each other while we shot was soooo precious and one of the most touching moments of the day for me!

After we captured some romantic portraits of these beauties, Stephanie pulled out the coolest, custom leather jacket EVER!!! Thanks to Four Things Paper once again for the custom lettering and artwork here!

And then they had the dreamiest reception in a candlelit barrel room with their favorite people!!

How cool is this open-air macrame photobooth custom made for Stephanie and Brian by Laura Stewart?!

Thank you, a million times over, Stephanie and Brian for having me and my team on your wedding day. I am so grateful to have been the one to document this all for you. And thank you to the vendor team who, not only made everything flawlessly beautiful but also worked so well together with such kidness and care. I truly admire so many vendors below.
