Stephanie + Jeff met at work in 2010. They started off as friends but couldn’t deny that they had a considerable amount of chemistry. After some time, they decided to take their friendship and develop it into a relationship. Stephanie was nervous at first because she is a “package deal.” It wasn’t just Stephanie that Jeff needed to win over, Jeff needed to win over her son Alex as well. Stephanie was so happy that Jeff was accepting of Alex and has become the most amazing father for him.
Stephanie + Jeff enjoy each others sharp sense of humor and love how they balance one another out. Jeff knows how to make Stephanie laugh and he always knows how to calm her down when she is stressed or feeling down. Likewise, Jeff loves how Stephanie can always pick him up when he is having a rough day. They love traveling together, cooking, eating, projects around the house, and watching “their shows.”
Jeff proposed to Stephanie in Chicago on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Building. They just finished their meal at The Signature Room when the fireworks display began, at the same time as the fireworks the staff came and brought Stephanie her favorite dessert (Creme Brûlée) and on the plate it said, “Will you Marry Me?”
When deciding where to have their wedding Jeff and Stephanie knew it had to be in Florida. They both have a lot of amazing childhood memories here and it is a place both of them hold very near and dear to their hearts. Jeff and Stephanie came to Clearwater two years ago on vacation and absolutely loved it, they thought it would capture their laid back fun energy perfectly!
Congratulations on becoming husband and wife Stephanie + Jeff!
