Real Wedding – Steven & Symone at The Elegant Barn

Symone & Steven were two of the sweetest people! I had the pleasure of working with an amazing team of vendors on this wedding at The Elegant Barn. I came across this beautiful story of Symone & Steven as told by April Maura Photography and just had to share!

“She had a crush on him her Freshmen year of high school. It was her sophomore year that he noticed her and asked her to the Homecoming Dance in between classes. For their first date, and the Homecoming Dance, Symone wore a dress with a mixture of green and browns woven into it. To have Steven match her, Symone chose for him to wear a green tie.


Before their first evening out, Steven was nervous because taking Symone to the homecoming was his first date. Before the dance they dined at Carrabba’s, an Italian food restaurant. At the end of the evening when Steven dropped her off, Symone leaned in and gave him a goodnight kiss. Hereafter, the dance, their love continued to grow as they shared their love for participating in the high school marching band.



Fast forward to years out of high school, Symone woke up from a nap on the couch to heavy footsteps coming her way…it was Steven walking toward her on his knees. At first, Symone was annoyed to being awaken but soon that annoyance toward to glee when Steven asked, “Will you marry me?”



The two high school sweethearts decided to wed and celebrate their marriage at The Elegant Barn in Gilbert, Arizona with their family and friends on January 7, 2016.

Steven and Symone you two are a fun and easy going couple. Thank you for your joyful spirits embracing your wedding day in the rain and shine.”
