“The only true way to have a friend is to be one”- Emerson. Stephanie’s best friend Arlie, wrote me an email a while back about throwing a wedding shower for her friend. As we exchanged emails about me photographing the event, one thing always stood out to me… Arlie never left out was how much Stephanie deserved the best. The very best. Not only was she an incredible friend, but also a genuine and most giving person. Arlie poured her heart into planning every detail of the “French Cafe” inspired wedding shower for her friend. There were Eiffel towers, croissants, and Paris pamphlets… but best of all, there was a bond that was shared by this fabulous group of women. As I roamed the room snapping photos, I felt an energy of love and excitement and I suddenly understood. To have such amazing friends must mean to be one first.
Steph, Arlie was right… you are nothing short of amazing. Thank you for making me feel so welcomed and loved. We can’t wait to shoot your wedding in March! You have incredible friends who adore you and I was honored to see why.

Stephanie and Arlie… the best of friends. I think Steph gets her good looks from her mother… How adorable are these invites? I especially loved the attire part. ;) After all the bridal toilet paper games I’ve seen, this was by far, the most creative. Although Stephanie’s baby niece didn’t seem to think much of it. =)
So. Incredibly. Beautiful.
