There’s no denying that Teresa and John are meant to be. They hit it off the instant they met each other at a close friend’s wedding two years ago. The bride was Teresa’s best friend since high school; the groom was John’s roommate and friend throughout college. They were both in the wedding party and met the night of their friends’ wedding! John was deployed to Kuwait for a year and he and Teresa met in Brugge, Belgium for the leave he had in the middle of his deployment. The pair walked around Brugge all day and he had the ring in his pocket the whole day. John eventually decided to propose at The Lake of Love, which is a popular tourist destination in Brugge. How romantic is that?! This proposal eventually led to their romantic Stevenson Ridge wedding.
Teresa and John had a romantic winter wedding at Stevenson Ridge in January. The two of them love the color red so they knew they wanted red as their primary color, but they wanted it to be romantically rustic. They chose Stevenson Ridge because it had that rustic feel and was a historic venue! For design and décor touches, they opted to decorate with a plethora of candles and red and white flowers. Thank you to Wolfcrest Photography for sharing this romantic rustic wedding with us today!
What were your favorite parts of the day? We just loved that everyone was dancing and having so much fun. Sara said that when she was editing pictures she was laughing out loud at how funny everyone was and how much fun they all looked like they were having and I definitely agree! My maid of honor’s speech was amazing and just seeing all of our friends and family intermingling and having fun was the best part. We loved being able to celebrate each other with our friends and family and it made us so happy to have so many people come up to us on that day and say that they could tell we had a real, deep love and it inspired them.
