Stacia! Max! What a COUPLE! What a love story! Stacia is my cousin, we grew up together, we’ve traveled Europe together (on our trip, she turned 18 and I turned 21! Our birthdays are days apart!!), and Marty and Stacia both went to Bradley University (they overlapped by a year)! While she is younger than me, I look up to her for her deep wisdom and maturity and transparency. She’s beautiful all around… and I’m so happy she found MAX! They met online (long, beautiful story!), Max moved from Ohio to St. Louis to be closer to Stacia… and the rest is history :) We’re traveling to Missouri for their summer wedding, and we CAN’T WAIT!
We shot these photos at Graue Mill in Oak Brook, just as the sun was setting. Can you even get over Stacia’s hair?! I started asking her how she curled it as I was shooting, and she was so sweet and started to explain, and then I realized what I was making her do (talk while trying to POSE), and said I’d ask her later!! And then… I forgot! So, Stacia, we’re going to need an Instagram tutorial or something ;)
Love you Stacia and Max!
