Paige + Stephen’s Love Story
In January 2020, they traveled to Sedona, Arizona for an adventure. They took a hike to see all of the stunning sights and on the second day, they went on a sunrise hike to Cathedral Rock. They were the only ones there and as the sun was starting to rise, Stephen popped the question!
The Wedding Day
“Soul Mates. I don’t know how it is you are so familiar to me or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are how every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before…in another time, a different place, some other existence.”
Paige + Stephen’s wedding day in Carmel, Indiana was literally a dream. Their wedding features the most beautiful details and events! Love notes, fresh florals, classy decorations, a vintage car, first looks, grand entrances, a streamers / balloon exit, it was truly special and I am so excited to share all of the beauty this day was full of.
The day started off at the beautiful Hotel Carmichael, goodness this hotel has so much charm to it, it was the most perfect place to kick off a wedding day. The morning went by quickly but it was full of so many beautiful moments; first look with the bridesmaids, with dad, and with Steve. So many smiles and hugs, love was in the air. Paige looked so stunning in her flowy gown, natural glam, paired with her neutral bouquet while Steve rocked a navy suit, these two looked amazing.
As we were getting ready to leave, the vintage car pulled up and oh boy was that a lovely addition to make the day fun! It definitely was a showstopper! The ceremony was short and sweet whereas the reception was full of partying! An intimate seating arrangement, a photobooth, and rentals for more lounging. Their reception started off with Stephen’s sister singing (her voice is so beautiful!!) I thought that was so unique and special to include during their reception events, absolutely loved it. Their night ended with funky dancing and lots of laughs, a night to remember.
Paige + Stephen, thank you for honoring me with the job of capturing your sweet moments. It has been such a blessing to be a part of this journey with you both and I am so excited to see your love grow even more. I absolutely loved seeing your vision come to life, it was such a gorgeous day! Congratulations Mr + Mrs Rae!!
