This past Saturday was a wedding I will remember for a long time. We had a gorgeous fall day for Chris and Stephanies wedding! Ferrantes Lakeview is such a beautiful venue.
I LOVE Chris and Stephanies story, as they are highschool sweethearts just like my husband and I. “Christopher and I met in high school when I was in 9th grade and he was in 10th grade. We went to football games together and grew very close. Eventually he asked me out and we began “officially” dating in January of 2011. We then went through high school together as a couple and then college as well.” While some people search their whole lives for their soul mate, these two are lucky enough to have found each other so early in life. “Not many people think a high school relationship will last. We however have beaten the typical stereotype! Although we were young, we can still tell others that we have been together for eight years of our life. We were able to do something that other couples will not be able to say; we could grow up together from teenagers to now. While there was still ups and downs, we would not change the fact that we met very young. It has brought us closer as a couple and as friends.”
October is one of my favorite months for shooting. We weren’t quite sure how the day was going to go when I first arrived at the hotel where Stephanie and her girls were getting ready. It was cold, and rainy. As Stephanie stepped into her dress, the sun finally came out and shone through the window on her. It was like something out of a movie! After Stephanie stepped into her dress, we headed to Ferrantes Lakeview in Greensburg PA where the guys were waiting outside of the Gazebo. Chris’ mom helped all of the guys with their cufflinks and ties, while the girls peeked out from the windows above. They had a beautiful ceremony under the gazebo, as their friends and family witnessed their vows to each other.
We spent some time taking family photos, bridal party photos, and bride and groom photos, and then headed into the reception. Everyone in the reception was so excited to see them walk in! There was TONS of dancing, and a great time was had by everyone.
At the end of the evening, we snuck outside for a few goodbye portraits, and Chris and Stephanie had their last dance. We had such a perfect day, and I just cant get over the emotion and outpouring of love these two received from everyone at their wedding.
Chris and Stephanie, I am rooting for you guys! High School Sweethearts for EVA! But seriously, I wish you guys so many years of happiness together, and grow to love eachother more and more as each day passes.
All my love, XX Jaclyn
