They met on an off chance. She was spending time with her dad on the last day of his visit to New York. Justin was catching up with an old friend before work would take him out of the country for months. Neither of them thought much of it. Months later they got back in touch. One dinner lead to another. And then a New Your Rangers hockey game at Madison Square Garden that neither one paid all that much attention to. It wasn’t long before Stephanie’s friends started hearing about this friend named Justin. They were immediately suspicious, suspicious the way your besties can be, when they’re so excited for you and can tell it’s just a matter of time before they’re going to be part of your wedding day!
Stefanie’s dad proudly grins and claims to have had a part in the matchmaking. After all, he was there the first time they met.
Stefanie and Justin, Thank you so much for having me be part of your wedding day. I wish you the best as you live your life adventures hand in hand. Much love, Nelya
Stefanie and Justin celebrated their fall wedding in Atlanta GA at the Ritz Carlton.
Her wedding dress was not only gorgeous, it was also her mother’s wedding dress and had extra special meaning to her.
They shared a first look and few first laughs before all the busyness of the rest of the wedding day.
Peachtree RD Methodist church was as beautiful inside as it was outside.
Its actually a lot of work to look this good. And this little ring bearer shared with me a few of his feelings while he waited to be part of the whole wedding party photos. 🙂
The Peachtree Rd UMC was started in 1925. They moved to this location on Peachtree RD in 1941.
The exited the church to cheers, well wishes and bubbles.
Before the reception started Stefanie and Justin enjoyed a few moments to themselves with the paintings at the top of the stairs.
No day is complete without a photo of a Ritz Carlton Atalnta’s iconic Luman bar.
Their weeding favors included their mutual love for golf.
The reception was held in the Ritz Carlton’s grand ballroom.
