After years together, Ben and Stephanie tied the knot last week at the GRAM. It was such a special evening.

Her beautiful veil from Texas!

This one’s my fave of the whole day! So much joy!

This was right after Ben pretended to throw Stephanie into the pond!

The back of her dress was AMAZING!

Such a good group! 😀

Oh my goodness. They have the cutest nieces and nephews!

Their wedding was actually on the same date as Stephanie’s parents’ wedding day! It was their 40th anniversary!

Oh wait, maybe this one is my favorite!

The decorations were so unique!


The food was SO GOOD.

Okay, can you tell I was obsessed with the back of her dress?

What an incredible day. Stephanie and Ben are such genuine, intentional people. Their families are sweet as pie. The wedding party rode around town in a motorhome and then went back to the GRAM to cool off (and some of them napped) before the ceremony started. It was too hot to have the ceremony outside, so they were married indoors, under a ceiling that appeared to be covered in stars. It was perfect. Thank you so much for having me, Ben and Stephanie!

    Absolutely stunning. A birthday I will never forget. Such a beautiful gift for my nephew to marry this amazing woman on my birthday. It’s captured perfectly.
