Stephen + Angie / by Brooke Courtney

When T.J. and I met Stephen + Angie for the first time, I knew their wedding day was going to be beautiful. The way they talked about the plans for their big day and how they really wanted photos with their dog, Lucy, was just adorable. Not to mention they treated us to ice cream - which made everything even better.

Stephen + Angie were blessed with gorgeous weather. Both families were so full of excitement before the ceremony it was contageous. Everyone practically skipped down the isle just so they could see Stephen + Angie tie the knot a little sooner. Following the ceremony, their dog Lucy was dropped off for a few photos - and I think everyone had a little crush on her. She was even more excited than the wedding guests. So cute!

Besides the reception being a ton of fun with dancing, bocce ball and the Smilebooth, Stephen planned an awesome suprise for Angie that made everyone tear up just a little bit. After the parent dances, Damian (the wonderful, wonderful DJ) passed out little blue and white pompoms to the bridal party. Then, one side of the tent yelled "We Are!", while the other side responded "Penn State!" As this was going on, the Penn State Nittany Lion came running out into the tent and totally surprised Angie. It was awesome. The lion cheered Stephen + Angie on as they cut their cake and took Smilebooth photos. You could just see how excited and proud Stephen was to have already pulled off a big surprise for his brand new wife. It was such a cool moment to be a part of.

Stephen + Angie really couldn't have been nicer and easier to work with. T.J. and I had a great time capturing their big day... and we wish them a life full of love and surprises. -Brooke
