Stefanie and Joel first met when they were in high school, but lost touch after graduation. They reconnected on social media a couple of years later and began dating. From that moment they have been inseparable. They chose the Omni Hotel in Orlando Florida for its sleek, modern ballroom and its proximity to the Disney theme parks, Stefanie is a huge fan. Another plus is that the hotel is pet friendly so they could include their adorable dog, Riley in the day’s festivities. Stefanie was gorgeous in her Haley Paige gown and Joel was dapper in his three-piece blue suit. The wedding party’s styling took a modern approach and we just love the bridesmaids’ sequin cocktail dresses with long satin overskirts. All of the ladies wore sparkling sneakers for ultra glam comfort and the groomsmen sported fun and quirky novelty socks.
The ballroom was decked out in white florals and gold accents and a trio of stylish floral-motif chandeliers cast a romantic glow over the space. Stefanie and Joel got the party started with their first dance as husband and wife and their guests soon joined in. After dinner and speeches to wish them well, the couple cut their stylish “naked” wedding cake. Then it was back out to the dance floor to celebrate and groove the night away with their guests until the last song of the night, when a celebratory confetti pop flooded the room with glittering golden confetti to everyone’s utter delight. Congratulations Stefanie and Joel!
