Wentworth by the Sea wedding of Emily and Stephen

by

Emily and Stephen's day was truly all about family.  Stephen's son, Brett, and daughter, Ruby, had important roles as ring bearer and flower girl, but it felt like they were marrying Emily, too.  Ruby had an eye on the bride all through hair and makeup preparations, watching quietly and piping up every so often that she, too, wanted her hair curled or a little lip gloss applied.  Brett hung out with the men as they watched a game and told funny stories, laughing along with them when he could tell the punch line had been delivered.

After a sweet ceremony we headed to the garden to do some family formals, and those two kids were absolute champs! It's a lot to ask a 10 and 6 year old to please stand here and keep up your best smile, and they did with little complaint.

Stephen is clearly an attentive dad, and it was so heartwarming to see Emily's ease and appreciation of her new, official family.  She is total mom material and made those kids feel included at every step of the way, not because she had to or should, but because she just doesn't see it any other way.  From the getting ready to the family dance at the reception, family was at the forefront on this day.  It was an honor to witness and photograph, and I just know many happy days are ahead for this crew.
