Stephanie was one of the sweetest brides I’ve ever worked with. She had such a great energy (even at our start time at 5AM!) that was contagiously calming. All morning she was incredibly easy going, and when I asked how that was possible she said “there’s nothing I can do about anything today. Whatever is going to happen will happen, so why spend time worrying about it?”
She laughed about the fact that she hung out with the bridal party the night before at the beach for a relaxing get together before the wedding, only to tell me they got swarmed by mosquitos and she had bites all over her legs and arms. When I responded with an immediate OMG, she laughed and said “what can you do, it’ll be a funny memory someday”. Then she started telling me that even some of the groomsmen received different colored tuxes from each other. When I looked concerned and asked her what she was going to do, she calmly told me that it was ok and there was no use in her getting all worked up and upset when she couldn’t do anything about it. Being a bit of a control freak, I was shocked yet inspired about her attitude. Not many people can laugh off things that go “wrong” on their wedding day. But Stephanie could, and did! She had a great attitude, and I loved doing her makeup for the wedding. She, along with her mother and 6 bridesmaids were all incredibly down to earth and total sweethearts. My sister (who was assisting that day) and I felt like we made friends that day.
Lots of love and happiness to Stephanie and her husband!
