The Wedding Ceremony | Stephanie and Eric:
They exchanged vows under the ancient towering oak tree at The Ridge Golf Club in Auburn, CA. In my entire career, I have to say that Stephanie’s vows (which were about 5 pages long), were the most heartfelt, emotional, honest, beautiful, and touching vows I’ve ever heard! She was so authentically happy to marry her best friend, and as I looked around while she ready her vows to Eric, there was not a dry eye in the crowd. Their wedding was more than a wedding, it was the creation of a family with Stephanie’s 3 beautiful children. After they exchanged vows, the children gathered around to receive necklaces linking them together as a family. For those of you who know me, ceremonies like this are close to my heart, since Andy and I will soon be tying the knot with my daughter Madyline by our side.
When I first met Stephanie, I instantly fell in love with her… her eternal positive outlook, kind heart, and huge smile is infectious! She amazingly planned her wedding while finishing nursing school and raising her 3 small children…. and every single time I saw her, she had that brilliant smile on her face. Andy and I were so honored and happy to be part of their day.
