Stephanie and Christopher had their fairytale wedding at Gregory Vineyard in Angier, NC. Stephanie had dreamed of her wedding in a Cinderella ball gown and marrying her prince charming, so you can imagine her excitement when she met the man of her dreams. Their story began in more modern times than the original Cinderella and these two lovebirds met in the way of many couples today…online.
Stephanie and Christopher had their first date not long after finding each other and it was love at first site. They spent all their free time together before Christopher, a United States Marine, deployed to Romania for six months. It was hard being apart during this time of new and exciting love, but they talked as often as they could and grew stronger and more in love. They decided that they were meant to be together forever when Chris returned.
Chris proposed to his bride during a trip to Texas to meet his family. While out to dinner at a beautiful restaurant with his family, Chris got down on one knee and proposed to Stephanie with a gorgeous diamond ring. Stephanie couldn’t have been happier and they returned home to start planning the big day.
The ceremony began with a surprise entrance from Stephanie on a carriage pulled by two gorgeous white horses. Chris was brought to tears seeing Stephanie depart the carriage and the ceremony was beautiful to watch. Their reception was filled with laughter and joy as they danced the night away with many of their closest friends and family.
The scenery of the venue was too beautiful to only capture a few photos during cocktail hour, so the couple decided to have another photo session a couple weeks after the wedding, but at my favorite time of day…SUNRISE! We were able to spend some time around the amazing grounds of the vineyard and capture the love between the newlyweds.
I hope you all enjoyed your special day as much as I did. Congratulations and many wishes for a long and prosperous marriage!!
