Working with Jessie and Stefan was such a dream. Not only are they incredibly beautiful together, but their hearts are just as pretty. It's been a pretty busy two years for these two. Jessie is in medical school so planning a wedding was a lot to add to her already busy schedule. Thankfully they had Monica Richard to help them through the process! This wedding was full of sentimental details!
There were certainly a lot of unusual events that made this wedding extra memorable. Stefan's brother shattered his pelvis just days before the wedding riding on a skateboard. Amazingly enough, he DID walk down the aisle and fulfill his duty as a groomsmen! That's an iron man right there! For those of us who were there we know the other memorable moments that will forever bond us:) Thankfully we had an awesome team of wedding professionals and a great staff at the Conrad to make sure everything flowed as planned. Good planning and a great planner really pays off! Monica did a beautiful job, as usual.
I remember feeling kind of sad that it was very rainy that day because normally we would go out onto the roof of the Conrad (Mr. and Mrs. Kite are so generous) and get some great shots, but we had to stay in because of the torrential downpour. Later in the evening the skies cleared and Jessie and Stefan danced in the street. We had quite a crowd surrounding them and people walking by in amazement at how beautiful these two are together:) It really didn't matter that it rained because the ceremony and reception were so gorgeous we could have stayed inside taking pictures forever!
The reception was quite the party! Everyone had a great time and Jessie changed into a fabulous Vera Wang dress and yet another pair of Jimmy Choo's for the festivities. Nothing like a spontaneous Vera Wang purchase! In memory of Jessie's father everyone gathered to take a taste of his favorite whiskey and dance. It was a very touching moment for everyone. Candles surrounded the dance floor, it was magical. The Neighborhood Pizza truck was there with Stefan's father, David, as a special chef. Family traditions! The pizza was wonderful! Thank you everyone for sharing this day with me! It was great to work with friends and get to know such a wonderful family. There is so much more I can say about this day and this couple, but let's let the images tell the rest of the story.
