Stacey's sister had convinced her to come out with her and attend a school function. What Stacey thought would be an uneventful evening turned out to be a turning point in her life. While mingling, Stacey met John, another law student in one of Jaime’s classes. To their surprise, that night was the beginning of an extraordinary friendship that soon led to true love.
Personalities: Stacey and John have many things in common, but at the top of the list is a desire to travel and see the world. They have traveled to many diverse locales throughout the world, including London, Greece, Las Vegas, and the Caribbean. Most recently, the two chartered a sail boat and sailed around the stunning British Virgin Islands.
Gloomy weather is always a concern when having an outdoor wedding. This couple however, lucked out. Stacey and John couldn't have asked for a more picture-perfect day; the giant tent looked beautiful on the rolling hills of Caledon’s Devil’s Pulpit golf course; dinner was phenomenal, and by nightfall the DJ got everyone dancing.
The party went perfectly, but the best part for Stacey and John was spending the most significant and memorable day of their lives with the people they loved.
“People traveled from all over the world to spend the day with us and that truly meant a lot,” Stacey says.
Stacey looked dazzling in a custom, strapless Vera Wang gown in ivory silk organza. It had delicate ribbon around an empire waist with a bow train.
Stacey and John decided to spend a few days in the Hamptons at a beach in Long Island. They watched the sunset while relaxing and recovering from the incredible whirlwind of the wedding festivities. However, this was just a prelude to the real honeymoon, which an insider reports, would be coming at a later date at the Grand Wailea in Hawaii.
