Music + Heart-Filled St. Olaf Pair Wedding

I know I say this all the time about my couples, but Alanna + Stephen really are just the cutest humans on the planet. The emotions throughout this day between Bride + Groom and family just have my FULL HEART!

They met at St. Olaf in the orchestra and that shared love of music carried through to their proposal story. Stephen secretly rehearsed with his student orchestra a version of the Bruno Mars song, “Marry You” and he really nailed it! It was pretty ridiculous and amazing and you can watch it here.

Their wedding day was filled with family and friends from all over the world. Her family is from Texas and his from the Britain. Some of the family even wore traditional fascinators!

The part that stood out the most for the day was their hearts for each other, their family and friends. A few examples: They wrote their own vows, which were fantastic. They had a “flower baby” because the Stephen’s niece is only six months old. It was such a sweet way to include his family and she was adorable! All the friends sang the Oles school song for me, twice even! They danced to one of Alanna’s favorite songs that Stephen had wrote + performed with a friend, #swoon.

And one of the most beautiful examples was during the dances. Stephen’s mom passed away from ALS and so instead of a mother-son dance, he had four of his “earth moms” dance with him to her favorite song. You just couldn’t help but cry and cry and cry at the beauty!

Alanna + Stephen, I have no doubt you’ll have many years blessed together not just with one another, but with your amazing family and friends. Continue to laugh big, keep the Lord in your center + never stop surprising each other.  Love you MUCH!
