Stephanie + Richard Wedding: Wayfarer's Chapel
I had just started getting in my groove when Stephanie asked me if I wanted a glass of water. Before I could give her my answer, she darted across the lively bridesmaids-and-family-filled room in her sweatpants and beautifully crafted wedding hair, handed me a cup of water, and smiled. This is Stephanie--a stunningly gorgeous woman, a doting mother to her 2-year-old daughter, Emma, and a sweet-loving, compassionate human being to all. And Richard? As soon as you meet him the world makes complete sense and it's evident that he is the perfect other half to her whole heart.
These two are far from being an ordinary pair. Richard is a professional race car driver and it was through the pursuit of his dreams where he unexpectedly met the woman who built him a foundation of new dreams. Though they had planned to wed earlier, they were unexpectedly gifted with life's greatest miracle--sweet little Emma. Emma came into their lives and the love between the two grew more than they ever thought possible.
Stephanie + Richard, thank you for giving me the opportunity to capture so many powerful moments. It's evident that you both give to others and care beyond yourselves but it was so beautiful to witness the two of you surrounded by the power of love. I can't wait to see what the future holds for people as amazing as the two of you.
