Amanda and John are a photographer’s dream client: stylish, relaxed and extremely kind.  When we working on their pre-wedding consultation they wrote to me: “We just want you to feel comfy taking artsy, non-traditional photos that you feel capture the moments in the best way.”  Wow! Boy, did that make me want to the absolute best job in the whole wide world. Its great when I have clients who are encouraging and supportive. So big hugs and thanks!

I could feel the love from their family and friends as these celebrated their love. It was such an incredible special day at the Wildflower Center. John and his groomsmen sported a great look: Converse with green checkered socks and matching bow ties. No pinchy shiny tux shoes for this crew.

Amanda’s dress is one of my favorites of the season (okay I have a lot of those I know…but hers was beautiful). Raw silk, and definitely truly unique. She got it at Unbridled…love that store!

This was such a beautiful way to display place cards. The guest were each given a little succulent plant to take home.

Okay, this deserves a special explanation. And that is John has the BEST ‘Can’t Touch This‘ dance I have ever seen. It was hilarious.

A few words from the bride and groom:

  • Q. Bride: What is your favorite memory of the day?
    A. Seeing my spectacularly handsome groom waiting for me at the altar. My legs turned to jello making that walk and seeing him in his adorable green bow tie made me feel like I was walking on air.
  • Q. Groom: What is your favorite memory of the day?
    A. Watching those legs of jello jiggle down the aisle. I thought about the day plenty of times but never imagined it would be so wonderful.
  • Q. Bride: What advice would you give future brides?
    A. Soak up every second and remember to be yourself! So many people are there who love you and want to celebrate with you. Hug them, kiss them and don’t forget to dance!
  • Q. Groom: What advice would you give to future grooms?
    A. Take a moment, step back and take it all in. Enjoy the time with your family and friends, it goes by faster than you want it to.
  • Q. Where did you go on your honeymoon
    A. Belize
  • Q. What was the song to your first dance?
