This was such a perfect day... we couldn't ask for a better getting ready location, ceremony or reception. That paired with a picture perfect couple and the perfect team of people all working to make their day flawless. I overheard one of Amanda's bridesmaids, calling her a "Disney princess" and I couldn't say it better! She looked gorgeous and timeless! The love and emotion during the day was beautiful and we were blessed to be there to capture it! Here is their story of how it all started...
"Alex and Amanda's story begins 26 years ago, when they may or may not have met on the swing set at the park while both of their parents lived on Florence Avenue in Arlington, MA.
20 years later in Syracuse, NY, Amanda was carrying cookies out of Archbold Gymnasium after DGAnchorsplash, and ran into fellow Andover High alum Adam Percy. Adam and his SAE brothers, including Alex, were selling magazines as part of their pledge process outside Archbold. After hellos and introductions, they offered Amanda and her roommates a ride back to their dorm. In the short drive from Archbold to Watson, Alex and Amanda had already caught each others eyes.
After Amanda left the car, Alex turned to Adam and said, "Adam, that's the love of my life and the girl I'm going to marry". Just kidding. it was more like, "that girl went to your high school and I'm just meeting her now?"
Over the next two years, although the timing always seemed to be off, Alex and Amanda grew to much more than the "just friends" they claimed to be (Amanda always knew that if she and Alex ever got together, they would live happily ever after). Then, at the start of their last semester of college in January 2010, the timing was finally just right. Alex walked Amanda home, kissed her, and four and a half years later, asked Amanda to spend the rest of her life with him."
