Stephanie Messick Photography 2016 Brides

To my dear and sweet 2016 couples,

Wow, can you believe it? 2016 has come to an end. After months of planning, stressing and coordinating, you’re MARRIED!!! You pulled off an incredible and successful party and should be proud. 🙂 Now it’s time to celebrate the years ahead! I recently heard a sweet man give advice to one of my dear couples after an Anniversary Dance and it made me tear up just hoping all of you can experience the love he has for his wife after 60+ years. He said before they go to sleep and when they wake up, he looks over at his wife, admires and tells her that he loves her. He never wants to take her for granted and expresses that every day.

Looking back over the past twelve months, I sit here in disbelief. It has been an incredible honor getting to know each and every one of you! So many laughs, tears and countless memories. <3 My heart swells with joy looking through these memories below and even though it’s only a glimpse of our time together, the one photo reminds me of so much more! You all have impacted me in many ways and I have gained valuable friendships. 🙂 Thank you all for an amazing and unforgettable experience together over the year! Your sweet words, reviews, enthusiasm and love mean the WORLD to me and I cannot thank you enough for that! You have inspired me as an artist, a business owner and as a person. I hope our connection doesn’t stop here as I would love to continue future gatherings into this year and the years ahead!

This is my first time doing a post like this, but I’m SO thankful we took a moment to take a photo together!!! These mean so much to me and a reminder of our personal experience. This quickly became a part of my routine over the years, but some of you surprised me when YOU were the one requesting for this photo. 🙂 Thank you for this memory! XOXO!

Thanks to all who took these photos below! 🙂
