Three-time “Survivor” contestant and viewers’ favorite, Stephenie LaGrossa, and Major League Baseball pitcher, Kyle Kendrick of the Phillies, are the couple that has it all. Both of them are successes in their own right, with the public eye trained on their fascinating and magnetizing lives. Stephenie is a phenom. She manages to be both elegant and an accomplished athlete, with a svelte figure, glossy dark hair, and glowing skin. Kyle is a handsome, all-American man with a contagious smile, and commanding presence. These two are a perfect match and even have his-and-hers pups – Kyle’s bulldog, Champ, and Stephenie’s precious Bebe.
The couple married at the lavish Silverado Resort and Spa, and their non-denominational ceremony took place on a brick patio next to a grove of trees. The below images of their magnificent, crystal-bedecked day narrate the culminating celebration of their romance, which began in 2008, when the two locked eyes at a bar. The rest, as they say, is history. Enjoy these portraits of the stunning groom and bride!
I wish them every happiness as they deepen and strengthen their relationship in the years to come. Thank you, both, for trusting me to share in your special day.cI want to take a moment to toast Wedding Coordinator Joannie Liss. She is
a visionary. Heartfelt congratulations, as well, to all of the gifted vendors who made this incredible ceremony a reality. You are all so talented!

Recently, they featured the wedding of “Survivor” star Stephenie LaGrossa and Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick, whose Napa celebration I photographed. With Coordinator Joannie Liss and Designer Eden Rodriguez of End Design at the helm, the ceremony and festivities were too-beautiful-to-be-true. From a horse-and-carriage to crystal-studded decor, it was an affair to remember. See more of the beautiful pair by clicking HERE! – create LINK!!!!!!!!!
Stacie and Ron’s relationship embodies all of the best aspects of a solid, enduring romance. They are light-hearted and energetic, with a full-on sense of fun- as if every moment together is an adventure. The couple exhibits unerring and total admiration for one another.
Stunning with exotic features, Stacie’s beauty leaves you a little awestruck. But not once did I feel shy or uncomfortable around her, because of her grace, ease, warmth, and kindness. Ron is just plain cool – funny, considerate, sharp-as-a-tack and head-over-heels in love with his honey. He would do anything for her. His two daughters were an important part of the celebration, as well, and it’s obvious that they have a loving and mutual connection with Stacie. I wish you two every happiness as you begin your journey together as husband and wife!
I’d also like to offer a special toast to Jean Marks and all of the superbly-talented vendors who contributed to this unforgettable wedding.

The December 2010 issue of Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine features some of my Lake Tahoe wedding photography. The event took place at one of my all-time favorite venues – PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn and featured my fabulous clients, Ci Ci and Bob. The vision for the wedding: No tradition! The unconventional affair started with a mountain-top ceremony concluding with the couple skiing down the hill!
They are an inspiring couple, and it is an absolute honor to share photographs from their special day. I hope you enjoy!
