This adorable couple – Amy and Stephen – worked with Premier from afar during the planning of their wedding, and they were absolutely wonderful. Their March 2021 nuptials took place at Park View / Market Hall, but prior to their actual ceremony, they met up with photographer Sarah Stephens around City Market for photos and were joined by their sweet pups. Can we just say that Amy’s dress was a stunner? And so was Amy!

The First Look

The Ceremony

The color palette for this day was sumptuous. Amy’s gown with its mix of cream and gold, the warm reds, corals and pinks, combined with blue, gold and orange created a perfect setting everywhere you looked. The bridesmaid’s bouquets and deep rich gowns were luscious too against the blue suits and cobblestone streets. It reminded us of Jessica and Mark’s late fall wedding last year.


This couple loves to do puzzles, so an engagement portrait was made into one that acted as the guest book. Puzzle pieces were signed by their friends and family throughout the evening. It was a really sweet idea.

The Reception

The lovely “find your seat” sign should probably have said, “find your dancing shoes,” because the dance floor stayed busy all evening. It’s pretty hard to beat cupcakes, dancing, laughter and toasts. The couple were celebrated from the moment they made their entrance until the final goodbyes. 

The Send Off

The evening ended with a group goodbye, and we think the images look almost like watercolors of blues, golds, creams, twinkly lights, sparklers and a big kiss. Below is another image that should probably be turned into a puzzle.

Congratulations Amy and Stephen! It was Premier’s pleasure to help you realize your dream wedding.
