An incredible day. That’s all that I can think of the describe Chris + Amanda’s wedding. The weather called for rain all day, and her outdoor wedding was going to suffer if it came true. We had planned for a year for this botanical garden wedding and we were heartbroken that it may not happen how we wanted! God had other plans for us though. We watched the radar through the day and the sun came out for us and the rain went away every time we needed it! It ended up being the very best weather. Not too hot and not too cold. The reaction on Chris’s face when Amanda walked toward him was priceless, and I LOVE seeing families become one. I could not stop smelling these flowers. I loved them so so much! Everything was white and pink and beautiful.
Amanda is incredible with these boys, and even though they ran off to explore once (or twice… ;]) she was patient and helpful and got them re-straightened every time they came to see us.
They were enamored with her as well. Thinking she looked like a beautiful princess. ( she did!)
Amanda’s bridal party was her sister. I loved that so much, the morning was calm and full of laughter, Her mother put in a ton of work to make sure all the details were perfect!
After everyone was dressed it was time to take the long walk to meet her groom!
Everyone was so so happy the entire day. Smiles all around!
We hustled through family formals because we were sure it was going to rain, and Chris + Amanda’s families were a dream to work with! We had plenty of time to spend with the bridal party before we went inside! Then it was time for the reception! They had rented out the bottom half of the building and set it beautifully!
DJ Craig Fenton was working hard and made the night so much fun! I can never express enough how important it is to have a good DJ!
We snuck out during the reception to do a few more portraits as husband and wife, and to relax for a few minutes.
Chris + Amanda, thank you so so much for choosing us to be a part of your day. It was amazing and I loved every second of it. Congratulations!
