“In trying to write this speech, I was looking for words to describe love. I asked Stephanie for her thoughts. What did it feel like to be so in love? She said, “You know that feeling that you get when you miss someone? I get that feeling before Jeff even leaves the room. That’s when I realized that there aren’t words to describe love…”
– Allison, Maid of Honor, Stephanie’s sister
And that really describes Jeff and Stephanie’s relationship. They say that opposites attract. We first met Jeff and Stephanie last January for their engagement session, and we could tell that Stephanie is the kind of person that wears her emotions on her sleeve while Jeff is the strong, silent type. They balance each other out, and were willing to make whatever sacrifices it took in their lives and careers in order to be together.
We were excited for their wedding day back then, and it did not disappoint. The ceremony was a full mass at St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Freehold, NJ. From there we headed to the boardwalk in Asbury Park where the bridesmaids and groomsmen attempted to one up each other, ultimately resulting in the groomsmen forming a pyramid for Jeff to climb. The Oyster Point Hotel in Red Bank, NJ was the final stop for the evening’s festivities with Stephanie, Jeff and all of their friends and family partying the night away.
Congratulations Stephanie and Jeff! Enjoy your honeymoon in Hawaii!
