Stephanie + Johnny: A Classic Red Wedding by Jen & Ashley Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy Monday, everyone! We’re starting off the week with a look at a classic crimson wedding between two West Point graduates. Stephanie and Johnny married in Hampton, Virginia on a rainy October day. Red rose floral arrangements and plenty of polished silver gave the day an Old Hollywood vibe, and we love that the bride was brave enough to pair a classic red lip with her fiery hair. Special thanks to Jen and Ashley Photography for sharing the day with us! You can see even more details (including close-ups of the bride’s stunning makeup) in our full gallery.

Stephanie and Johnny met as “plebes” at New York’s West Point Military Academy. Though they each had secret crushes on each other throughout that freshman year, it took living assignments on the same sophomore dorm hall to finally get the pair talking. For their first date, Johnny took Stephanie to a piano concert hosted by the school’s foreign language department. Academy rules prohibit PDA, but Johnny managed to sneak in a kiss at the end of the night.
