She inherited a condition called cone-rod dystrophy, which leads to an impairment of vision or blindness. She’d lived next door to Rob Campbell for 18 months, but didn’t cross paths until October 2016, when they met at a drinks event held by the apartment building. Stephanie has never seen Rob, but even after getting off on the wrong foot (she thought he was a bit too much at first), they quickly fell in love. On Christmas day 2017, Rob popped the question, and this month they got married. the wedding was pretty spectacular.
Guests wore blindfolds during the wedding vows. The location was on the same road as Stephanie’s great aunt’s house, where she had visited as a child, so she could remember the amazing view over the Glasshouse Mountains. Rather than a ring bearing toddler, Stephanie and Rob had an owl from Raptor Vision fly down the aisle, land on Stephanie’s arm, and deliver the rings.
The flowers were selected to be especially fragrant, and staff at the venue, Weddings at Tiffany’s, took the time to describe every detail to the bride. Every piece of fabric was infused with essential oils so Stephanie could be reminded of different parts of the day years later.
