This couple and this wedding were all kinds of amazing!!!! We started the day with shooting the details, just as a normal wedding day would start, but with a twist...we actually started before anyone was there! It was a little too calm for us, we aren't used to not being in the midst of the craziness that goes on in the bridal suite! So we were fully prepared for a whirlwind of craziness once the girls all arrived, hurrying to get dressed and ready...think Home Alone, as they got ready to go to the airport. What completely threw us off though, was how cool and collected the mood was when they got there!!! It was such a nice way to ease into the day, and Amanda looked radiant as she finished her look by stepping into her dream dress. Later in the day she gave me some insight into the shopping of that very dress. When she first started to look online at dresses, she had pinned this very dress, being the first one that really caught her eye. Fast forward to when she actually started trying on dresses and she completely fell in love with this Pronovias gown, not knowing it was that same dream dress she had pinned!!! It was definitely meant to be, just like marrying the man of her dreams!!!
If we thought Amanda was calm....it was nothing compared to Gary! He was so easy going, looking to us as to when and where to go next. He was so thrilled to be marrying Amanda that nothing was going to bother him! It was such a pleasure to watch these two all day long. From their first look, to the moment Amanda walked down the aisle, they were an inspiration to couples everywhere! You couldn't help but see the love and happiness that oozed from these two all day long!!
Although, we didn't have snow for this winter wedding, the weather wasn't exactly warm..... Amanda wore the most adorable fur stole to keep her warm, (you know just as a back up to the arms of her husband to be) as we walked around the property to do creative pictures. The light that was just starting to set was gorgeous, casting a warm glow to an already stunning backdrop.
At the top of the post we shared the day of slideshow that we showed right before parent dances from what we had shot and edited so far in the day. The slideshow was great but I do have to say there was a downfall. The fact that we weren't able to include the pictures of the Irish step dancers that performed later in the night!!! They were insane!!!! So talented and with so much energy...I honestly was so happy and impressed I almost cried...don't ask me why. Either way, you will have to tune in later for an update with pictures of their performance!
Congratulations again to you both, we were honored to be a part of your day! I hope you enjoy watching the slideshow again and again to relive your day!
