This gorgeous vineyard wedding comes to us from Josephine at NST Pictures, based in New York, NY! Here’s Stephanie, the lovely bride to tell us more:

Zak and I met for the first time in 6th grade. We became close friends sophomore year of high school, when both of our groups of friends melded into one. We were best friends for the rest of high school and finally began dating at the very end of high school.

See more after the cut!





Zak went to UVM for his freshman year of college and then transferred to UConn. I was at Northeastern University in Boston. We both moved home after that and he got his law degree at UConn law while I got my Master’s in elementary education. We were dating for over 8 years and are very excited to finally be married!





Zak has been doing some wood-working projects with his grandfather. He had made two night stands for our bedroom and since March of this year was working on a ‘secret project’. It turns out that secret project was a beautiful jewelry box that he used to propose!






We had the box incorporated into the wedding because it is so beautiful and thoughtful. We were also married by Judge Janet C. Hall. She is the chief federal judge for United States District of Connecticut. Zak worked for her as a clerk down in New Haven and we were very excited to have her as part of our wedding.




Congratulations Stephanie & Zak and thank you Josephine for sharing! For more information about NST Pictures, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.
