Stephanie and Ricky are so sweet on each other and quite the joy to photograph. their love story began when Ricky's father purchased a local restaurant from Stephanie's father. Stephanie continued to work at the restaurant after the transfer and eventually Ricky and Stephanie's paths crossed. Ricky said it was a little awkward at first because he had to use his brother as a bridge to talk to her :D Once the connection was made the rest is history.
Ricky popped the question at Stephanie's favorite restaurant Rossilli's. Even though Stephanie knew the big question was coming, they made it special by having both their immediate families join them.
The day turned out to be a beautiful (hot and windy) but beautiful day! Stephanie is so talented and tackled her own hair and makeup, and I think she did a stunning job!
Ricky looked absolutely dashing in his black tux and silver tie
Their ceremony was held at Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Findlay, Ohio.
Following their ceremony we headed directly to The Center in Bluffton, Ohio for their beautiful reception. The couple arrived in style with a full band following them as they entered. The music was so fun and filled the night as everyone ate and enjoyed the celebration.
This gorgeous couple will be heading out shortly to Cancun for their honeymoon! I hope you two have an amazing trip and enjoy every second of your newlywed bliss!
