I genuinely love what I do – arranging the magical moments of a couple’s most special day is the best job in the world. This gorgeous couple had such a joyful and genuinely fun style, everyone present could just tell their love would only continue to grow every day.

Javen’s smile as he watched Stacey approach him down the aisle was so charmingly excited; Stacey looked flawless and had eyes only for Javen as she stepped down the aisle in a classically elegant trumpet-shaped gown with a chapel-length veil in her perfectly coifed hair. Her smile radiated love and confidence as she took step after step to join him at the altar. They couldn’t contain their joy during the ceremony, both while they assembled a unity cross to represent the two people joining together as one, and as they exchanged vows, rings and finally, a kiss!

The ceremony and reception took place on Wandering Valley Ranch in a family-owned barn that they renovated and decorated for this special day – and it absolutely glowed with the strings of fairy lights and several gorgeous chandeliers! They kept it sophisticated and simple with a tulle backdrop and flowers for an altar, and a soft white floor runner.

Every special moment was captured perfectly by Joey at j&a photography, including the sweet and tearful moment shared between father and daughter as they danced. The celebration continued with a reception in the same space featuring catering by 24 Blackbirds and a gorgeous cake (with a cheesecake base!) and a huge variety of cupcake bites by Bake Me Happy.

The guests enjoyed fresh popcorn favors and a DIY bar stocked with the bride and groom’s favorite libations. Finally, Stacey and Javen kissed under a shower of confetti for a perfect send-off. I sincerely wish these two the best in the future. Congratulations, Javen and Stacey!
