Charming Hillside Wedding

View More Photos

Janelle and Steven met their sophomore year in college!


They shared a mutual friend named Justin. He introduced the two and they began seeing a lot more of each other at different social events. Steven knew right away there was no way he was letting this beautiful girl get away. He decided to ask Janelle out on a date where the two hit it off and have been inseparable ever since!


A little over six years later Steven knew that it was finally time to propose. Every year the two take a trip to the Outer Banks but their trip that year would be just a little more special! Steven took Janelle to a nice dinner at a local restaurant in North Carolina and after they enjoyed a walk down the dock. When Janelle and Steven reached the end of the dock, a plane flew overhead with a banner that read “I love you Janelle Larco, will you marry me?”. After many tears of joy, Janelle was able to say yes and when she turned around she saw all of her family that traveled up to surprise her!


Janelle and Steven fell in love with the stunning hillside and peaceful views that Tranquility Farm had to offer. Ever since she was little she had dreamed of having a simple rustic wedding. The attire that they chose portrayed the simple rustic theme perfectly. It was important to the couple that no one stress out about their big day. They wanted this to be a fun celebration for them and their families.


The couple had many favorite parts of their wedding day. They each loved how they chose to start their day. Janelle and her bridesmaids started their day by getting their hair and makeup done. Steven and his groomsmen began their day with a friendly game at TopGolf. After the ceremony, they loved being able to dance and enjoy a few drinks with their friends and family.  Janelle and Steven advise other couples to live in the moment on their wedding day. There are so many things to look forward to throughout your wedding day that it’s hard not to overlook the small things. They hope that other couples will enjoy even the small events on their wedding day!
