“Steven and I first met online on a dating website called “OK Cupid”. I always ask Steven: ‘how did I find you?!’ and he jokes that he really found me (he was the first to send me a message). We met for the first time at Biggby coffee–talked for hours and totally hit it off (Steven even invited me to see a movie afterwards because he didn’t want the date to end).The next day, Steven traveled up north to visit his parents and caught a terrible stomach flu. Despite being horribly ill, he and I texted all day, every single day until he came back downstate the following Sunday when we had our first official date: dinner at The Milford House and watching “How I Met Your Mother”! From then on, we have been inseparable.”
Steven and Amanda’s wedding at The Botanic Gardens at Historic Barns Park was magical. The weather was amazing, everyone was giddy with excitement, their reception at The Cathedral Barns was stunning. We enjoyed spending time celebrating and witnessing their beautiful day!
