Stella and Dan have known each other for over 20 years, but they didn’t start dating until a serendipitous combination of social networking and a well-meaning sister reconnected them. For their wedding, the two had 3 key details they loved and planned the rest of their wedding around the soft lighting, vintage style dress, and lush garden venue. Stella is a self-proclaimed “crafting nut” and their wedding is filled with DIY creations, personalized details, and a whole lot of hand-made love.
