Steph + Isaiah

Weddings by the water are somehow inherently romantic. While most have beach or by-the-ocean affairs, we’re beginning to see a bit of an uptick in the number of lakeside weddings. I love this! Lakes are an underutilized venue option. I hope this wedding, that of Isaiah and Steph inspires you to explore your local lakes. Isn’t this just so romantic, inviting, and warm?

Additional information about this wedding from the photographer: Isaiah & Steph did most of the wedding planning, decorating, and everything else all on their own (and with the help of tons of loving family and friends). The wedding was held in the backyard of a family friend (they have a gazebo right on the lake). Steph’s mom, sister, and aunts did the flowers, and friends helped her coordinate everything. The morning of the wedding all of Steph’s bridesmaids were out by the lake setting everything up and decorating. Isaiah & Steph have friends that own a bluegrass band, and they did the music during the ceremony and the reception. One friend made the cake, another friend made barbecue for the reception meal, and still another friend did her make-up. Isaiah searched for weeks to find the perfect ring for her, and finally settled on a 1920’s antique ring, which is absolutely perfect for her.
