A Wedding at The Grandview

It’s early in the wedding season, but we’ve already had some amazing weddings. Stephanie & Matt’s wedding was definitely one of our favorites partly because we got to spend so much time with them, and also because we got to see some friends and familiar faces again.

Stephanie filled her day with superb details, from the intricate designs of her gorgeous gown to the beautiful flower arrangements and exquisite designs for the reception room tables. She was so excited about the way everything would photograph. Little details are so important.

NOTE: I forgot to mention another COOL detail. Stephanie & Matt purchased one of their favorite engagement session images for use on the cover of their wedding music CD handed out as favors to everyone at the wedding. The final cut of this CD includes a song written and performed by Matt titled “To Make You Feel My Love“. We loved it!

Of course, our favorite part of the day was when we got to go off with just the two of them for a private photo session. Steph & Matt, what an awesome job you guys did, despite the heat! We know you’re going to fall in love with the results. You looked as if you were cast for a movie or magazine spread. We loved every minute of it and hope you did, too. Thank you so much for a great day, as well as for the scrumptious meal!

Their gallery will be available very soon in the “Client Proofs” area of our main website. Check it out! And please be sure to leave a comment for Stephanie & Matt or for us here on the blog by clicking the “Comments” link immediately above this entry.

More with Stephanie & Matt:

  • Ulysses - Awww, thank you so much Sharon & Jim! It was our most sincere hope that the photos would not only be memorable, but that they would make you laugh and cry all at the same time, while reflecting on the absolute beauty of their day. We couldn’t be happier for the two of them. And they were each amazing to photograph. It’s been a genuine pleasure to photograph them and to get to know the families.August 1, 2008 – 11:23 AM

  • Sharon and Jim Savarese - Just had to let you know how amazing the pictures are. Every time we look at them, we are living that day again which is great since the day went by so quickly. It has taken us this long to order pictures because it was so hard to decide. It is obvious you were everywhere and caught every moment including everytime I cried. We will cherish these pictures always along with the memories of a that beautiful day. Thank you.July 31, 2008 – 7:13 PM

  • Ulysses - LOL! Stephanie, you guys were awesome to be with again. From Jeff’s acoustical guitar during cocktail hour to the silky sounds of your amazing voice during the reception, everything about your presentation and running of the show during the party was wonderful.

    Speaking of “rockstars”, did you enjoy seeing and listening to the CD of music provided by Steph & Matt to everyone? Matt is quite the talent. I hope to hear more from him in the future. πŸ™‚

    Talk to you both soon! πŸ™‚July 14, 2008 – 8:52 PM

  • Stephanie - Ulysses and Jenni, you guys are PROS. Not only da bomb to work with, you’ve got the goods when it comes to talent.

    Of course, Matt and Stephanie looked great to begin with *grin*, but you made them ROCKSTARS.

    Can’t wait to work with you again!

  • Ulysses - Annie & Jason! You can follow us around anytime! I’ve actually got photographer friends who have read that blog entry, and who are asking me, “how can I get an AnnieCam for myself?” LOL!

    Yeah. They’re all jealous. LOL! πŸ˜€

    Seriously, I know that a huge part of what makes the “magic” happen for us is when we have brides like Stephanie and yourself (and oh yeah… the grooms like Matt and Jason… can’t forget the guys) who are willing to take a few chances and do some unusual things for stunning photography. We just LOVE that. When we’re in love with the possibilities of a shoot, it pumps us up to do our very best… and then some.

    Thanks for the incredibly kind words. It’s so encouraging. πŸ™‚July 9, 2008 – 11:51 PM

  • Ulysses - Steph & Matt, words don’t even describe just how happy we were for you guys. I have to admit, though, I feel almost a little bit sad that it’s over. It seems we’ve been looking forward to your day for so long, and now it’s finally come and gone in just a few short hours! It was A-MAZ-ING to see how all of your awesome details came together for the reception, too. Better than we’d even imagined. We were so happy for you guys when we saw the beauty of it all.

    You guys already know that we work our hearts out for even a single stunning photo. But for the two of you, we wanted to make sure you were enjoying it just as much as we were. We’re so glad for how everything turned out in the photos.

    Please pass our warmth and love on to your families. It’s not over yet. We’re looking forward to hearing about your favorites and designing your album for you.

    Hugs from myself and Jenni. πŸ™‚July 9, 2008 – 11:49 PM

  • Steph and Matt - Hi Guys,

    Well once again you have outdone yourselves!! Matt and I were so excited to see the pictures that we even checked the site a couple of times from St Lucia but the internet connection was terrible so we werent able to see much. So even though we didnt get home until late Sunday night we both made sure to sit down and look through every picture before we went to bed. They are amazing – we love them and are going to have a hard time settling on which ones to choose for the album.

    Thank you for making everyone feel so comfortable around the camera – it helped to make the day that much better. My parents both commented on how you cant help but smile for your pictures because you both have such a great attitude and are a pleasure to be around!!!

    We will be talking to you soon.

  • Annie - Ok- so you all know that I am totally obsessed with Ulysses and Jenni!! You two ROCK!!!! These (once again) are amazing photos!! Stephanie and Matt are such a cute couple and you really captured some adorable (yet beautiful) shots!!! I know Matt and Stephanie are going to love them!!

    The best part about all of these is how you “see” so many memorable moments- from Stephanie getting help with getting her dress ready, to sweet moments at the Mass, Mrs. Savarese breaking it down on the dance floor, Matt doing some funky dance moves- to all of those great shots with Stephanie and her family and friends. She really “worked” that dress- the dress looks awesome in so many pictures!! You go Steph!!!

    Anyway, you know I could go on and on- Stunning photos! Great job Ulysses and Jenni!!July 4, 2008 – 1:00 PM
