Steph + Brandon || Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Steph and Brandon ditched the cold uncertainty of Maryland spring and headed to Fort Lauderdale to tie the knot in their beautiful wedding weekend. Good thing, too - it snowed back home while everyone was enjoying the warm sunshine of South Florida!

They kicked things off with a sweet little rehearsal dinner at Grille 66, where everyone was in high spirits and excited for the next day.

The wedding day dawned warm and breezy, the perfect spring day in South Florida.

The two said "I do" and literally tied the knot at the point at the Lauderdale Yacht club, and then proceeded to party down until the sun set and the moon rose.

It was a fantastic weekend, and I'm so happy I was a part of it. Congratulations to Steph and Brandon, wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness! -xom.ella
