They met while stationed at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. It started with a field exercise and a game of spades in which they whooped the others due to Brianna’s mad card skills. Stephen was impressed and deep down a little smitten with her. They became good friends, they enjoyed great conversation. They were deployed to Iraq around the same time and it seemed as if they continued to play their cards right because they were always on duty at the same time. Their relationship continued to grow, but in a friendship sort of way. Many years went by and Stephen paid Brianna visits while she lived in Vegas. One one of his trips out, however, something was different. Stephen wasn’t able to stop thinking about Brianna. He took her on a romantic tour of Vegas and ended up standing on the bridge in front of the Venetian gazing at the gondola’s. That is where he pulled her in and kissed her… that is where everything completely changed. That is when the two could not deny that they were made for each other. Just like peanut butter and jelly :)
Brianna & Stephen planned their beautiful wedding at Falkner Winery in Temecula. The day however didn’t quite go as planned since the weather was a bit temperamental. It rained on and off throughout the day, thankfully the ceremony was spared :) But you know what they say, it’s good luck to rain on your wedding day! Hey, it rained on mine!
We were once again working with some amazing vendors, live music provided by the amazing Brian Stodart, gorgeous flower arrangements by Stephanie at Sweet Pea Floral Creations and a beautiful cake by Shelly at Rapunzel’s Cakes.
Thank you Brianna & Stephen for allowing us to be a part of such a spectacular day. A day that was not in the least bit affected by the weather, there was so much love and excitement we were blessed to be a part of the experience. And really, you guys are perfect for each other :)
