True story: When Michael came home from his very first date with Stefania, he told his parents he was going to marry her one day. Awwww...yup, that's what I said when the couple told us the story of their meeting over some margaritas in Mexico after their friends Cindy & Zee's Cabo destination wedding. He said they both knew right away they were soul mates (another awww!), and from that day forward they were together. Well, one day finally happened, and Stefania & Michael's Vancouver weddings was pure bliss from start to finish.
Here are some of our favorites from their day. And when you have a bride & groom as sexy as Stefania & Michael, there are A LOT of favs :)

Saint Francis of Assisi is a beautiful church.
Cherry blossoms and a little bit of that elusive Vancouver sunshine made for a perfect afternoon - so happy to be married!
