Amanda & Chris’s wedding day dawned beautiful and perfect. Grab some popcorn, a few tissues, and settle back because this is going to be a LONG blog post!!
Amanda works at Alan Evans Bridal so I knew her dress was going to be gorgeous!! And boy was I right. I loved the little lace cover-up for the ceremony too.
I love the photo my 2nd photographer got of the bridesmaids peaking through the window! : )
A few formals and family photos done before the early afternoon ceremony started! I won’t post most of those since this blog is going to be super long already!!
After the ceremony the wedding party headed out to the park for portrait time!
It was so windy, but at least that kept most of the mosquitoes away.
Amanda’s hair looked amazing blowing in the wind!
The wedding party headed back to the party bus while we took another few minutes just for the bride & groom. I love so many of these!
I was quite excited when Amanda said she would be willing to sit in the grass in her wedding dress. I think these next set are my favorites!!
A quick stop to check out the Bison Game Day score (winning 58 – 0)!!!
And then I headed out to the Marriott to get detail photos! I loved all the uplighting going on!
The whole evening was full of games, imitating other’s kisses, the newlywed game, Disney dances for the kids. It was quite the reception party!
The fun continued through the dances. They decided to start out with some dance lessons, learning Gangnam style and others, before the official first dance started. It was a fun way to get everyone excited for the dancing!
The first dance was a choreographed fun dance which started out like a normal first dance:
Then the music cut out:
And the fun started. Love their faces, getting really into it!
The next photo of Chris makes me crack up every time I see it!!
Family traditions of laying down and slapping the ground, goofing off. Everyone seemed to be having such fun!
Thanks for a great day you guys! Hope you loved these teasers, I’ll be getting your link to download put together in the next few days. Enjoy!!
