Southern Door St. Mary’s St. Francis Church Wedding, Door County

by | Oct 30, 2018 | Weddings

 When I first met with Stephanie and her sister over drinks to chat about she and her fiancé’s wedding day, I had no idea the connection they had to the Brussels area or Southern Door School (my grade school alma mater). As we chatted about details and her fiancé, Cory, I started to piece things together and realized I knew exactly whose wedding this was, and was all the more excited about their special day! Cory and Stephanie are an incredible couple. They are both smart, determined, and down-to-earth. They care not just about what is best for themselves and each other, but what is best for the people around them and their community. Anyone who knows them will realizes how lucky them are to call them friends.

Stephanie and Cory got married at our favorite little Catholic church in Brussels and held their reception at Rock Gardens in Green Bay. We stopped along the way for pictures at Sugar Creek looking out over the bay (so gorgeous!) and Green Bay Botanical Gardens for photos of just the two of them. The wedding details were stunning, her dress was timeless, and the guests really brought the party when it came to the dance floor (choreographed bridal party dance, anyone??)

But the best part of their wedding day was when they were announced as husband and wife at the end of the ceremony. This is always a special moment to witness as the bride and groom turn toward their guests glowing with pride, but it was even more intense with this couple. As Stephanie and Cory turned toward their friends and family, big smiles across their faces, their guests erupted with applause and cheers. I have never heard a celebration like that; it was as if everyone in that tiny church was feeling that moment right along with them.
