While there are an array of colors and shades to select for warm-weathered weddings, Stephanie chose the ultimate summertime color: pink. From pink pajamas for her bridesmaids to stunning pink bridesmaid dresses, Stephanie’s choice exudes femininity and adds a touch of romance to her special day.

The bridesmaids looked so pristine against Danny’s groomsmen who were as dapper as they could be in their classic gray suits. (Summer wedding tip: opt for a neutral, lighter color like the gray shade in Stephanie and Danny’s wedding, beige, or even white tuxedo jackets for the men. It keeps them cool and the color options are a refined, modern alternative to all-black.)

The choice to have a church ceremony followed by a backyard reception allowed Stephanie and Danny to honor their faith while also creating a warm and inviting space for their loved ones to gather. It was a testament to their desire for meaningful connections and cherished memories.
