The bride and groom both prepared for the day at the church with just a wall separating them from one another! Stephanie’s mom helped her into her beautiful gown from House of White Bridal Boutique while Matt stepped into his tuxedo from Men’s Wearhouse.
Matt and Stephanie opted to forego a first look waited to see one another for the first time the traditional way – during the monumental walk down the aisle. The church doors swung open and Stephanie and her dad made their way into the gorgeous church towards her husband-to-be. Matt stood in awe as his bride approached him.
The couple smiled throughout the entire ceremony as they promised forever to one another. It was obvious that they couldn’t be happier!
After the ceremony, the new Mr. and Mrs. Shirel exited the church and headed straight to their limo ready to celebrate this new chapter of life with their family and friends.
The ballroom at Oak Meadow was beautifully decorated. JoElle Elise Design created elegant and full centerpieces to perfectly complement the bouquets filled with neutral colored flowers and subtle pops of pink.
When the couple entered the reception, they immediately wowed everyone with an impressive choreographed dance to Everything by Michael Buble. These two have some serious moves, you guys! I suspect their next venture will be as contestants on Dancing with the Stars. 😉
Following the toasts by the best man and maid of honor, Stephanie shared a dance with her father. Matt joined out on the dance floor with his two daughters. It was such a special moment and a bittersweet glimpse into the future.
The new Mr. and Mrs. continued to celebrate their love and commitment to one another as they joyfully danced with their friends and family. Congrats to you, Mr. and Mrs. Shirel! You have a beautiful life ahead of you!
