Every couple has their own preferences on how to navigate their wedding day. For Stacey and Joe, this meant putting a strict ‘no phone’ rule in place for all their guests.

Taking to Instagram to explain her reasoning behind the surprising decision, Stacey revealed the couple chose to ban phones at their nuptials "mostly for home privacy," but also so that "everyone could enjoy the day without worrying about filming and getting pics."
