Stephanie & Michael – Elkridge Furnace Inn

This wedding will always have a special place in my heart. I adore these two so much and just in their brief time together already they have encountered so much and it is incredible how they lift one another up and support each other when they need it. I have known Michael since I was in middle school and I have always known he would marry someone absolutely incredible, someone sweet, caring and so kind, which is exactly what everyone thinks of him. Thank goodness for the internet, these two met on Stephanie actually messaged him and Michael responded but Stephanie, tired of first dates and meeting new people, didn’t respond again. The good news is that Michael was persistent and didn’t let her not respond, he continued messaging and they finally set up a first date. And when the first date day came, Stephanie admits she was fussy, throwing a mini temper tantrum because everything was wrong that day – she didn’t have any clothes (how often do we ladies stare into a closet full of clothes and say I have nothing to wear), her hair wasn’t cooperating, and she was tired and grumpy (aka probably starving because this is me when I am hangry), but she realized it was too late to cancel, threw on some jeans and put her hair in a ponytail and met Michael for dinner. Something about that ponytail and jeans must have worked because everything turned out amazing. The wedding day could not have been more beautiful, the day after the 4th of July, with red, white and blue everything, it was absolute perfection.
