“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.” -David Viscott
The hazy summer skies had a foreboding sense of rain as the bridal party began to make their way down the aisle, but by the time Alex and Stephanie recited their vows to each other, a halo of sun rested upon them. Under a lighted gazebo roof, the newlyweds and their bridal party beamed of happiness as the pair was announced as the new Mr. & Mrs. Sota.
Alex and Stephanie met through mutual friends in college in New Jersey at Stevens Institute of Technology. They both describe their relationship as goofy and easy going and enjoy being in the great outdoors together in the Houston heat where they currently live.
There were lots of happy tears throughout the day. Steph’s matron of honor, her sister Katie, stated in her speech that she has never known someone who cries just as much when she’s happy as when she’s sad. It must run in the family, because Stephanie and her dad shared lots of sweet tears together as he saw her in her wedding dress for the first time.
With a meat carving station outside, a pasta station, and a seafood station, it was fine food and drinks all night long. Add that to a big family who loves to be together, friends who bring the energy, and a couple as happy as can be; you have a wedding day to be completely thrilled about.
We were so excited to be with you on your gorgeous wedding day, Alex & Steph! Thank you for making our jobs so easy and so fun!
