Stephanie and Thiago were set up by Stephanie’s sister who met Thiago, and knew right away he would be a perfect match for her sister. We’d say this was a major win in matchmaking!
Stephanie and Thiago waited a long time to get to their wedding day, but it was worth the wait. Everything about their wedding was beautiful including the gorgeous bride. The only thing that could have made the day better would have been having Thiago’s family there. Due to the closed borders, sadly his Brazilian family could not make it. Instead Thiago spoke with his dad via video chat and All Because He Asked live streamed the ceremony. When Thiago and Stephanie walked down the aisle after saying "I do" they stopped at the live stream camera to blow kisses and say a few heart-felt words directly to Thiago's family. It was a special and emotional moment that I'm sure they will always remember. Trying to fill the void of Thiago’s missing family, his friends were by his side all night and weekend! Thiago is a lucky man to have such a caring, genuine wife and such amazing friends.
Prior to the wedding Stephanie and Thiago spent time at the Wilson Creek Manor in Temecula, California. This is also where they got ready and did first looks with Stephanie’s brother and dad. The girls getting ready space was setup like a salon and perfect for her many friends. While Stephanie only had two official bridesmaids, she had lots of friends there to support her. When Stephanie got to Callaway Winery she did a first look with her godfather/uncle. Like the first look with her dad, Stephanie’s uncle’s jaw dropped at his niece all grown up and a beauty!
The grooms getting ready room at Callaway Winery has a manly, speak-easy vibe that made all the guys comfortable. Thiago and his friends drank Scotch and had a great time preparing for the ceremony. Thiago is full of laughter and clearly likes to have fun, which is perfect for Stephanie who equally glows with happiness!
Stephanie and Thiago were married outdoors overlooking the Callaway vineyards. Following the ceremony and cocktail hour guests moved into a working barrel room for the reception. The decor was stunning with tall center pieces made with red, pink, and white roses, gold trimmed table settings, and spot lighting illuminating the barrels and tables. They went all out to make it perfect! Prior to guests entering the reception, Stephanie and Thiago took a moment for themselves to enjoy the beauty of the room, and to let it sink in that they are now Mr and Mrs.
Having been brought together over their shared love of food and travel it was only fitting that the food be delicious. They served a five-course meal with breaks for toasts, and a special surprise video Stephanie orchestrated with the help of All Because He Asked Wedding Videography. Thiago’s friends and family wished him well and offered kind words via videos strung together. It was touching and a memorable part of the evening. After dinner and traditional wedding events guests traded their heels for provided flip flops and danced the night away!
Thank you for letting us capture your special day, we had a great time spending the day and evening with you. Stephanie and Thiago, you are truly a beautiful couple who knows how to have fun and laugh, which happens to be our favorite thing to do too :). We wish you a lifetime of happiness and hope to see you again soon!
