Robert & Steven

The Only Thing That Mattered

Steve and Bobby had an instant connection. After five blissful years of dating, Steve popped the question while at Pops for Champagne, surrounded by their closest friends.

The pair began the wedding day together at their house along with their twenty-person wedding party. The lovely hustle and bustle of the morning created an amazing energy as the grooms prepared for their big moment. “It was so wonderful to have all of those people in the same place supporting us that morning,” says Steve.

The party moved to the venue, Salvage One, and Bobby and Steve separated to finish dressing in their handsome tuxes. “There is an indescribable feeling that you get when you see the person you’re about to marry in that first look moment,” says Bobby. “When I saw Steve dressed in his tux for the first time, he was the only thing I could focus on in the room. Our love was the only thing that mattered.”

Guests were greeted with champagne as they entered the venue. Warm light from chandeliers glowed over the grooms, as they were walked down the aisle by their mothers. A life-long friend of Bobby’s performed an extremely unique service. Steve and Bobby read personal vows, and everyone in the room could feel the love between these two gentlemen.

The couple wanted to create a timeless look for the reception by using different textures, mixed metals and wood, and a spring-like palette of green and white. “The inspiration for our wedding was West Elm meets Restoration Hardware, with a bit of J.Crew style,” says Bobby. These fun, personalized elements, sweet speeches, and excellent music and dancing created the perfect evening for the newlyweds and their guests.
