Strathmere Garden House Wedding: Danielle + Trevor

Once again, I don’t know where to start when it comes to this wedding. There have been so many wonderful couples this year who have waited so long for their wedding day to come, and Danielle + Trevor were definitely in that list. In fact, I really questioned myself when I went to write up their wedding day Instagram post using their engagement session photo because that session was all the way back in 2018!!

Strathmere Garden House Wedding: Nicole + Stephen

What’s better than capturing the wedding day of an absolutely wonderful couple at a beautiful venue? Capturing the wedding day of a wonderful couple at a beautiful venue AND including their dog in the first look, ceremony and portraits!!

When Niki first mentioned that she and Steve would be including their pup Oscar in their wedding day I was completely on board. And then when I got to meet this happy puppers I was completely smitten with him and instantly understood why he HAD to be a part of the big day!

Strathmere Inn & Lonestar Ranch Wedding: Jolani + Josh

Strathmere-Inn-Lonestar-Ranch-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographySo I really like my birthday – like really like it. I am actually the type of person to give myself not only a birthday week, but a birthday month! But historically, I have never been able to celebrate my birthday on the actual day. When I was in university, exams always ruined the birthday spirit and all the celebrations would be postponed until after everyone had suffered through all their tests. Then when I was working as an engineer, the end of March was one of the absolute busiest times of the year and everything would once again get pushed a week or so. So when I starting working for just myself, I figured I would be able to set the day aside for celebrations – but that only works if you don’t book anything on the date.

But I didn’t mind sharing the date with Jolani + Josh for even a second! These two are so kind and wonderful that I had no problems postponing my birthday celebrations a little bit to be able to capture their wedding day! And as an added bonus, these amazing people took time out of their special day to highlight my birthday by gifting us a delicious birthday cake – how cool is that?!
