It’s been almost a year since Amanda & Jayme’s engagement session, so I was pretty excited to work with them again on their big wedding day!! I started out at Amanda’s house where she got dressed. Isn’t her gown from Alan Evan’s Bridal gorgeous! Loved the belt detail that she added as well.
Amanda’s dad passed away a few years ago, but she kept one of his blue shirts, made a little heart out of it and wore it inside her wedding dress. How sweet is that!
Even their cute pup couldn’t keep his eyes off her!
Then we headed over to Lyndenwood Park for the first look and portraits!
Then we walked down the path to another spot where my 2nd photographer (thanks sis!) got some really cool photos through the trees while I did more straight on photos. I love having the two views!!
Then we headed out of the heat and back to the church where I did some detail photos before the ceremony.
The priest forgot to tell the couple to kiss so they stood up front for a few moments laughing and then the groom just went for it. It was pretty fun!
A little bit of downtown fun!
And then I headed over to the Hilton Garden Inn do get photos of the tables and details while the couple enjoyed their drinks. The centerpieces were so lovely! One of the special details was the logs each centerpiece was set on were logs that the bride’s dad had cut for their fireplace, the family had saved them and cut them into smaller rounds to be included in the wedding details. A very special way for dad to still be involved.
There were two little cardinals hiding behind the cake for the bride and groom, nodding to the groom’s high school mascot. So fun to see their reactions to those little birds!!
The toasts were quite emotional. Lots of laughs. Tears. More Cardinals. And the sweetest lullaby sung by the bride’s mom and aunt.
Congratulations Amanda & Jayme!! Thank you for inviting me to be part of your wedding day! I’ll be putting together your final edits and get the link emailed to you soon. 🙂
