Seneca Epley


KC + Stephanie

It was January 20th, 2017. Stephanie had been traveling for work all week and was driving back to Milwaukee (where they lived at the time) from Chicago. She had been on the phone with KC for the entire two-hour drive and was rushing to get home because they had his company holiday party that evening. As she entered their apartment, she saw a bouquet of flowers and KC standing there. She was immediately suspicious! He shared some kind words and then got down on one knee. It was absolutely perfect. They went to his holiday party briefly then straight over to his parents’ house to celebrate!
Stephanie’s high school best friend, Anna, gets the credit for introducing KC to her. Anna is originally from Wisconsin and her parents happened to be very good family friends with KC’s parents. They have known each other since before Anna and KC were born! Each year the families get together on the 4th of July at Anna’s family lake house in Illinois. In 2013, right after Anna and Stephanie had both graduated from college, she asked if she would like to join. For about 2 years leading up to this weekend, she would randomly mention her “Wisconsin friend named KC” and that Stephanie should meet him someday. That day came on July 4th, 2013! KC and Stephanie spent the whole weekend talking as they floated in the lake and been together ever since!KC and Stephanie officially started their relationship a little less than 2 months after meeting. Stephanie will admit that she may or may not have taken the first job offer that was close to his area. Luckily, it all worked out in the end! “I love that KC is so incredibly thoughtful. He has such a good heart and always the best intentions. The kindest person I know.” – Stephanie  “I love how driven and organized Stephanie is. She motivates me to be better.” – KC
In their spare time, they love going to sporting events, spending time with friends and family and in their new home. They simply are the happiest being together, doing whatever together while enjoying everything their little life has to offer!
They went on a first date just two weeks after their first met. Stephanie traveled to Wisconsin for the weekend. They went to Six Flags and had the best day together!Stephanie is originally from Bettendorf, IA and graduated from Iowa State University. KC is originally from Brookfield, WI and went to UW-Whitewater. Stephanie describes her personality as a bit more controlling while KC is more laid back at times. She likes to have things a certain way while KC just goes with the flow. They both are pretty goofy although KC has more sarcasm. KC is a ruler follow while Stephanie is more apt to test the limits. It’s safe to say they perfectly compliment one another!Stephanie recently transitioned recently transition her career from event planning to real estate. KC works as an underwriter for insurance companies.
Their perfect date would be tailgating and going to a college football game.
“This is going to sound so cliche but I have honestly been waiting for this moment my entire life. I have always been obsessed with weddings, decor, and the love that is shared on this special day. I created a wedding powerpoint when my family first purchased a computer and I’ve been updating it periodically for as long as I can remember! I can’t wait to see everything come together, to spend the day with my best friends and family getting ready, to do a “first look” with KC and to just soak in everything about the day. It will be incredible!” – Stephanie
 KC + Stephanie. I couldn’t have asked for a better evening. Spending it with you two and capturing your love was such a joy. Thanks for making the trip to Iowa! I am SO excited for August 18th!! Xo.
