Those of you who have been following along for a while might remember that Stacey & Charles had more than their fair share of pre-wedding stress leading up to their day. Umm to say the least. :) But hopefully what these pictures will show is exactly what their guests got to witness that day: that these guys chose to dance in the proverbial rain, to laugh at the storm, and to love like there was no tomorrow. And in doing so, they inspired us all. I can think of no better words to describe these two than what I wrote the day after the wedding. So I will just leave it at that.
Yesterday we shot the absolutely beautiful wedding of Stacey & Charles. The weather was perfection, the flowers were delicate and timeless, and Stacey & Charles were a vision of Old Hollywood glam. It was the kind of day every girl dreams of. Except that it almost wasn’t.
Five days ago, these two got a call that their venue, Monteverde, had gone bankrupt and closed its doors. That’s it. Done. Wedding is off.
Except that it wasn’t.
Because more than anything, all Stacey & Charles cared about was getting married. They would get married in a backyard if they had to. BBQ & BYOB. But come Saturday and come what may, they were starting their life together. So they stayed cool under some extreme pressure and…they went to work. And in just five days, with the incredibly generous help of Guy Dimeo and Unique Affair Catering, they pulled together an even more beautiful day than anyone could have imagined.
Stacey & Charles, it was an honor to watch you laugh together. To dance together and smile together and raise your glasses together. To see you soak in the most perfect day celebrating the start of the most beautiful life together. Always love the way you do right now. It is an inspiration for the rest of us.
S&C, there are no words for how much we love you guys. Seriously. You are the kind of clients that are sure to turn into life-long friends. And I only hope you know how grateful we are for that.
So much love!
How FANTASTIC were Stacey’s shoes?!
J.Crew AND vintage Tiffany’s?! Ummm that’s my kind of wedding.
Stacey’s bouquet from florist Pamme Jones was STUNNING, and had a piece of her grandma’s dress wrapped around the stems. Love that idea!
Stacey you are absolute perfection. Vintage, Old Hollywood, va-va-voom perfection!
Justin went over to hang out with the fellas….where the best man was working out the speech.
And Charles was looking pretty Old Hollywood glam himself!
LOVE this one!!
The priest who did the ceremony was awesome! I kind of wanted to bring him home with us!

Nothin but love, baby!
Love this shot of Stacey’s dad as he looks on!
