The Newton Wedding | August 12, 2017 | Photography by: Patrick Perkins Photography
Stephanie Seay and Christopher Newton dated for a while in high school, and even though they broke up, they found themselves reunited about seven years later, when Chris gave Stephanie his number, which she called the day after. They have been together ever since, and they both appreciate how far they've come. "Chris was my first love, and he will be my last," Stephanie says. On Christmas Eve of 2015 at Stephanie's mother's house, Chris decided that the time was right to propose to Stephanie. So, in front of Stephanie's family, he asked her to spend the rest of his life with him.
The couple's special day was filled with dancing and fun with their friends and families. Stephanie says that the ceremony was "absolutely amazing from the moment I started walking down the aisle towards Chris and his amazing smile." The couple wanted to accentuate the natural beauty of their ceremony with their wedding colors, and the views of the surrounding landscape played a huge role in creating an enchanting day. Stephanie, who had always wanted a big bouquet, was not disappointed when her time came to walk down the aisle. The couple set up a table in memory of loved ones who had passed away, and Stephanie's great-uncle walked her down the aisle as her father passed away when she was a teenager. After their full day, the couple packed up their car and immediately embarked on their honeymoon, still donning their wedding clothes, in an experience that Stephanie describes as "breathtaking."
