Their story goes all the way back to middle school. He was a gecko and she was a gator- teams used to divide their sixth grade class. They barely knew each other, but their difference in middle school species didn’t deter these two from meeting again in high school, developing the sweetest friendship that turned to deep love and everlasting commitment. Their love stood through long distance college years, and West Point training and schooling- and has only grown through the years and challenges into the strongest forever love.
Gilly and Paul were married at the stunning Riverside on the Potomac on Independence Day. Paul wore his dress blues, and Gilly dawned the most stunning lace gown- she was truly a vision. Witnessing these two promise forever was the best way to spend July 4- and capturing it all was the truest honor.
Gilly and Paul- your day was a favorite day. I can’t imagine a day more perfect for the two of you. Thank you for the honor of capturing the day you will always cherish. I hope these photographs always bring you back to this most wonderful day <3 Lots and lots of love to you both, Mr. and Mrs. Stetekluh!
