The wedding was beautiful, the weather was awesome, the bride was phenomenal...it really was such a pleasure to photograph Ryan & Amanda's rehearsal dinner and wedding and I feel blessed to have been a part of their special day.
Thank you so much, Ryan & Amanda, for being so awesome & laid back...thank you for letting my 1st wedding experience be such a fun, enjoyable experience....I pray that at least once I was able to be the hands and feet of Jesus to you and your families.
Blessings to you both,
I absolutely LOVE the expression on Ryan's face--he looks so happy and like he's having a great time...these are the types of pictures I LOVE to capture....
The dress....oh my--it was sooooo pretty....with beautiful lacy details...LOVED it!
Ryan & Amanda decided not to see each other before the wedding...so they exchanged some love and kisses through the door...
This was one of the neatest details that Amanda added into the wedding...instead of having a flower girl, she had the groomsmen toss rose petals ...it really turned out awesome!
It is absolutely sweetness the expression on Amanda's face...like "I love you, Dad, but there's a new sheriff in town.."
Amanda set up candles all around the sanctuary--it was a gorgeous touch--can you see them flickering in the background??
Centerpieces at the reception...I thought they were very classy, but easy decorations (my kinda girl!)
Another priceless detail...Amanda & Ryan are very creative...and one of the ways that they wanted to create a memory of their wedding is by making this painting...and then have guests sign it/put their mark on it...VERY cool & classy!
This is Ryan & his lifelong best friend...if I am remembering correctly, his wife was either in labor during the wedding or went into labor literally as soon as Ryan & Amanda drove away...either way, something big happened as soon as they left...
Another detail...Amanda is a barefoot type of gal (I'm starting to wonder if we were separated at birth)...anywho, she and all the bridesmaids went and got pedicures so their toes would look pretty when they went barefoot....I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that they were all barefoot during the wedding!!! I wish I would've done that!!! You rock, Amanda!!
