Denessa + Steve | Wedding


We were so glad that Denessa allowed us to be a part of their day this past Saturday. Everything was perfect.... Even the turning leaves of the surrounding woods coordinated with the the smallest details.

I met Denessa during our freshman year at Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. She and her roommate Tiffany, had their dorm room door open. As I was passing by, something drew me in to stop in and introduce myself. Denessa was so nice and friendly as she showed me her extensive collections of Chinese decorations. Instantly, Denessa and I clicked and it was like I had always known her. She is quite the mover. Denessa has lived in Chilicothe, Springfield, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. I am so happy that she has found "home" with Steve.

These wonderful booklets detail how Steve (Los Angeles) and Denessa (Phoenix) met at a Tori Amos concerts in Albuquerque and then again in San Francisco.

Steve and Denssa have such a great time watching as their wedding party is introduced!

What a gorgeous table setting was designed by Denessa herself!

Their wedding cake was made by a woman from Lawrence and the cake was decorated by a woman who works at the Inn.

The tent was decorated with branches that had tealight candles and butterflies hanging in them. Every detail was thought of and just perfect!

Denessa and Steve cut the cake right before he shoves it into her face! :O)

Denessa, a fellow-photographer from Los Angeles, has a really great eye.
She really wanted a night shot of the house and it turned out beautifully.

Congratulations Steve and Denessa!
We couldn't be happier for you two.

We wish that your honeymoon and your life will be as beautiful as your wedding day.
.... and if your wedding was any indication, we know it will be!
