Ooooooh Steven&Stephanie! What a couple. What a stinking amazing couple. They had so many fun, and uniquely personal things at their wedding that I’ve never experience before! They did a Catholic ceremony earlier in the day, but still wanted to read vows to each other in front of all their loved ones, so they had a vow ceremony and reception at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. Stephanie knew she was going to be a weeping mess during that ceremony, so they came up with fun ways to make her laugh if she needed it by having the guest respond to the officiant’s calls. When their officiant would call “Stephanie!” The guests would punch the air and yell, “Ko!” (her last name). When he would call “Steven!” they would respond with a body roll and say “sexyyyyy!” …That pretty much tells you who they are as a couple right there! Haha!
During the reception, Steven’s groomsmen had prepared a special musical performance for the couple which was hilarious, and an even greater surprise was Steven himself getting up and serenading his bride!
I laughed, I cried, I may or may not have danced while I photographed because their party was off the chain!
When I caught up with Stephanie after the wedding, she filled me about all her wedding “mishaps” (things inevitably don’t go according to even the best plan), but you would never have known about any of them because the good things (which were many), were SO GOOD that those little things, well– who cares right?
