It feels like I’ve been looking forward to CJ & Steve’s Howard County Conservancy wedding, well, forever. As I mentioned in their engagement session post, the moment I met these two, I knew I wanted to work with them. Immediately, I was drawn to their connection with each other, as it is a connection that is so rarely seen. Between their unspoken communication, tender touches, and endless laughter, these two are everything a couple should be. It is clear that these two have truly married their best friend, and I couldn’t be happier for them.

These two exude fun and radiate warmth. We need more CJs and Steves, in this world.

Their endless silliness and laughter make them a joy to be around, and their gentle touches, kind hearts and warm smiles can put just about anyone at ease. After meeting on an online dating website, CJ & Steve decided to go out for a movie, followed by some pizza and beer. Over the next few weeks, as their texting became more frequent, they began meeting up for adventures of hiking & mini golf, and lazy days of drinks and video games. Steve fell for CJ’s sense of humor and quick wit, while CJ fell for Steve’s sensitivity, creativity & warm heart. And thus became the couple, CJ & Steve, and the universe wins again.

CJ & Steve were married on a Thursday in October, which also happened to be National Coming Out Day. And, while their “fall” wedding, was hot, humid and graced with buckets of rain, none of that mattered. All that mattered was that these two best friends pledged to spend the rest of their lives together, being best friends. It was an awesome thing to witness.
