One of the first sunny days we had in over a month, and it couldn’t have come at a better time than for Amanda and Adam’s wedding day! Upon arrival of the ladies’ getting ready location, Barry and I were delighted to step into a charming red brick house, clearly built earlier than the past century, with tons of character that only older homes have. Maybe we are a little biased- our house was built in 1910- and there’s just something about the old school hardwood floors, rippled-glass windows, and quirky doorknobs that draw such character. So naturally, we wanted to incorporate some of this character as we took Amanda’s getting ready pictures.
The level of detail that Amanda, Adam, and their families put into their wedding was nothing short of amazing. One of my favorite touches was all of the bling- their ceremony programs were lined at the top with rhinestones, the champagne flutes had etched sparkle and bling-decorated stems, and even Amanda’s shoes were adorned with rhinestone embellishments! This girl and I have similar style.
Amanda and Adam are one of those couples that just fit together perfectly. It is the little things, like how they hold hands, how naturally Amanda cuddles into Adam’s arms when he gives her a hug. It is really endearing to watch them together. Even more endearing was seeing Adam as he watched his bride glide down the aisle. You can see him trying to fight back the tears. He was just in awe.
Take a look to see what I mean…
Ah- just look at those rhinestone embellishments! And pink shoes! Love.
Love how sweet these ladies are together. And, love the matching robes!
Not only was this wedding full of details, but also many sentimental moments. Amanda’s grandmother let Amanda borrow her wedding ring to wear for the day.
There’s nothing more sweet than a bride’s reveal to her father. Especially, when the mother and mother-in-law are part of it by peeking in!
Here this gorgeous beauty is- in front of the charming house we love so much!
The Flower Girls walking down the aisle, and the behind the scenes of the Mother of the Bride coaxing them down the aisle. Can you find Leigh?
I love dramatic entrances…
Just a little bit of primping before her portraits…
I love this sign on the bar… because people WERE up to shenanigans…
And in case you need a little more sparkle to fulfill your daily bling quota…
