Stephanie and Jeff are so freaking adorable, I seriously can’t handle it!! These two chose Papillon 25 as one of their engagement session locations because it holds a special significance in their relationship! This bar is where they first met (more on that in a bit!) and where they had their first kiss! Major heart eyes getting to revisit such a memorable part of their story! We also got to take in all the gorgeousness at Branch Brook Park and capture the beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom!
I love the way that Stephanie and Jeff are so loving and affectionate with each other. They were seriously so much fun to photograph! They were up for literally anything and they even pushed through the unexpected freezing cold weather and random bits of rain – they crushed it!!!
These two have so much admiration for one another and it shows in everything that they do and say. When I asked them what they love about each other, Stephanie said she loves that Jeff brings her so much peace & tranquility, and Jeff said loves how much energy and passion for life Stephanie has! I love how unique their responses are – it shows how deeply they know and adore one another!
Stephanie told me all about how they met! She said, “We met at the bar I used to work at, Papillon 25. He came in but there weren’t any seats at the bar, so he left. I noticed him walk in immediately (starstruck, yes). About 20 minutes later, I saw him sitting in the section that I was working. It took him a while to smile, but once he did, the rest was history.” Too cute!!!
I’m so excited for their wedding day this July at Locust Hall Farm! I already know it’s going to be such a dream when they tie the knot, but also because they’re another Jennifer Tolento Events couple just like Caitlin & Mike’s Wedding! Can’t wait to see all the magic they create! Stephanie and Jeff, you two are incredible and so much fun to be around! I’m so thankful to know you and be a part of these special memories! See you two in July!!! <3
