Stephanie looked up from her seat as the groom took his place at the front. She smiled at her tall, handsome friend. His sharply dressed groomsmen took their places as well, and one in particular immediately caught her eye. ‘Who is that?’ she wondered.
Eddie scanned the guests gathered to celebrate his sister’s wedding. Somewhere in this group of people was the girl his sister hadn’t stopped talking about. She was pretty, sweet, and everything he was looking for. They’d be perfect together. She was sure of it. And in case he needed another reason to talk to her, they’d be sitting together at dinner.
Stephanie was confused when she saw the seating assignments. She and her brother weren’t sitting with their parents like she had expected. As it turned out, they didn’t know anyone else at their table. But her puzzled expression turned into a smile when all the seats at the table were filled and she found the handsome groomsman she’d been wondering about was seated next to her.
After making small talk during dinner, Eddie could tell his sister hadn’t been exaggerating when she had told him how wonderful Stephanie was. He wanted to ask her to dance, but every time he found her in the dimly lit room, she was already dancing or chatting with someone. Maybe he’d see her at the after party.
But at the end of the night, Stephanie excused herself from the after party, hoping Ed would ask for her number before saying goodnight. And when he didn’t, she was confused. Had she imagined his interest in her? Should she have asked for his number?
“What do you mean you didn’t get her number?” Eddie’s family asked the next morning at breakfast.
Eddie shrugged. He wasn’t really sure what had happened. But when a little red flag notified him of a new friend request, he smiled. Everything was going to work out just fine.
Colonial Williamsburg has been one of my favorite engagement session locations for a while now, so I was super excited for another 2016 engagement session there! The sun was shining and the trees were blooming, so it was a beautiful contrast to the last time I was there! And how perfect is this green dress on Stephanie? I loved it!!!
I'm so excited for Stephanie & Eddie's wedding this fall with Soirees by Lauren and the amazing ladies at Waterford Event Rentals! Stephanie works for Waterford, so I'm DYING to know what they have planned for the reception!
