Stephanie and Joe • Long Beach Dessert Themed Wedding

September 25, 2014

Yes, you read that right. DESSERT THEMED. Stephanie (a talented, sugar-loving baker) had such a unique vision for their wedding and I loved seeing it come together. Cakes on every table named for Shakespearean characters, an insane masterpiece of a cake table by Sweet N’ Saucy, and DIY details by Stephanie in every nook of the the Italian restaurant. AMAZING.

Ever since their engagement session, I’ve been looking forward to their big day. She and Joe have together for 8 years. They first met at an aquarium and something about that moment made them instantly obsessed with one another. Throughout their relationship, they have seen the highest highs and the lowest lows together, knowing what they had was truly “it.” Currently as Joe pursues his PhD in English, Stephanie stands happily by his side with an incredible amount of support and love. “True Love and High Adventure” was the slogan for their wedding as well as this part of their lives together. And that describes perfectly their passion for their life together. Here are just a few favorites from this wedding…

You are so interesting! I do not suppose I’ve read a single thing like this before. So nice to find another person with a few genuine thoughts on this issue. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This web site is something that is required on the web, someone with a bit of originality!

I love the getting ready photos, all her girls surrounding her helping out great big smiles. Awesome job documenting it,
