On the night before the wedding, Stefanie went to sleep with nervous butterflies, but woke up excited! One of her most treasured moments was her father seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress. Not only did they both burst into tears, but he hugged her with pride. Later, as she began her walk down the aisle towards a teary-eyed Ricky, Stefanie admits she was covered in goosebumps. Overcome with happiness, the couple couldn't stop smiling at loved ones during the ceremony. The fun continued later as the newlyweds spent the night dancing and partying with everyone.
