Connecticut Park Wedding: Stephanie and Fady

Weddings

It was a perfect summer day, sun was shining, with a faint cool breeze. The day Stephanie and Fady had been eagerly awaiting had finally come. It is amazing to think it all started online, getting to know one another. They became best friends, unified by their same beliefs in God. And now the day has finally come, where ‘The two become One.’

The men were all getting ready together… Stephanie’s brother (Thomas) was helping Fady.

One of the most special moments of the evening was witnessing their foot-washing, symbolizing their humility and commitment to serving one another in their marriage.

Fady’s priceless reaction after he insisted on putting on his own sock, but she put his foot back on her lap and kissed the top of it! So precious.
