Samantha and Stephen were married on beautiful, crisp April 6th, 2013 at St. John’s Baptist Church and had their reception at The Water Table in Virginia Beach Virginia. These two are such a great couple. They met 5 years ago in Biology class. Stephen came in and sat next to Sam. He wanted to study ALL the time! 😉 Wink, wink! At first she was being nice and humored him, but then her feeling began to grow and he won her over! He has been making her laugh ever since. They were married exactly 5 years to the day of when they first started dating. And it was such a moving Ceremony. Stephen had tears in his eyes when he saw Sam walk down the aisle…and they both struggled to make it through their hand written vows. There were also lots of laughs, too, like when Stephen made a solemn vow to forever put the toilet seat down. 🙂 Hold him to this, Sam!! It was a wonderful day and as always, Jay and I were thrilled to be able to be a small part of such an amazing beginning to two wonderful people’s lives!
