Stephanie and John's enchanting wedding is filled with Disney magic and personal touches.
Stephanie and John's extraordinary love story has the makings of a fairytale. From teenage friends at church to a love that would endure nearly a decade, their lifelong commitment culminated in a breathtaking wedding celebration. Adorned with elements from Stephanie's favorite video game, Kingdom Hearts, and the enchantment of Disney, their dreamy wedding was a testament to the couple's creativity and their undying love for one another.
With diligent detail-oriented planning for over a year and a half, every decorative element contributed to an atmosphere of magic. Handcrafted and designed by the bride herself, teal accents and whimsical gold touches permeated the venue, The Colony House, accentuating its natural beauty. “I really enjoyed putting the theme into my projects for the wedding and seeing it come to life the day-of,” says Stephanie. “I had worked hard over 1.5 years planning out details and creating/designing most of the decorations by hand.”
Guests found themselves transported table-by-table into different Disney worlds showcased in the video game Kingdom Hearts. Expectations soared as attendees discovered a Fast Pass card — another Disney nod — indicating their respective table.
The memorable evening overflowed with delectable flavors catering to their combined palates, as the buffet-style Italian cuisine tantalized taste buds. The mouthwatering menu featured delightful treats, including butternut squash ravioli and chicken piccata. Additionally, a delightful boba bar added a touch of whimsical sweetness, satisfying the couple's shared devotion to all-things boba.

Memories crystallized as the night unfolded, punctuated by heartwarming speeches from the maid of honor, a groomsmen, and the couple themselves. Unable to write personal vows due to their traditional Catholic ceremony, Stephanie and John seized this opportunity to express their heartfelt sentiments uniquely. Their words resonated, weaving a tapestry of love that will forever be etched in the hearts of their beloved guests.
Stephanie and John exemplify the true essence of love, a love that endures through the seasons of life and embraces passions while intertwining with dreams. Their enchanting wedding was an exquisite declaration of love, solidifying the bond that journeyed them from friends to soulmates. May their union serve as a forever reminder that when love conquers, extraordinary fairytales are written and realized.
