They were married on the same date as they met, 5 years ago on a tour bus in Boston, which also happened to be Stephen’s birthday. Everything about this wedding was so personal and lovely, and I left feeling like I had just gained so many new friendships.
I want to note some of my favorite personal thoughts that they put into their celebration. Stephen would always get a bunny cake for his birthday, made by his mum. Julie & Stephen have been making each other bunny cakes for each other’s birthdays, and since they were married on Stephen’s birthday, there had to be a bunny cake! Keep and eye out for bunnies (they are hoping to adopt one soon!) and snowflakes throughout their wedding! They spend their free time on the mountain, so they honored her with snowflake boutonnieres, and 3 hidden snowflake charms (they love the number 3) in Julie’s dress. Julie sprained her ankle on Mt. Hood just a few days before their wedding, but she still managed to walk and dance in her gorgeous heels! Stephen is a Professional Lighting Director (for some cool bands you probably listen to!), and I was spoiled with incredibly awesome lighting that you would see at one of his shows. Julie really wanted to do portraits inside this rundown building by their house that they play frisbee in frequently, so Stephen made that happen.
