Some of my favorite brides are moms. I think it has something to do with perspective. They’re just not into stressing out over details because ain’t nobody got time for that. Amanda & Andy had a beautiful wedding. In fact, their details were fantastic. They hired a super awesome wedding planner: the bride’s mom. She does great work, and has an awesome team of friends and family who all pitched in to make the day a fun family affair.
Some of my favorite details: homemade herb-infused olive oil favors & family wedding photos sprinkled among the tables.
The photo on the left cracks me up. I just love it. (by my 2nd, Rachel)
You’re having a beautiful moment with your bride, and then… a bug lands on your nose. #classic
Their baby girl’s toddler priorities were obvious. Run when you want her to stay. Drag her feet when you need her to walk. She has it down!
We tried for a family photo after the ceremony, and it just wasn’t happening. I love it for it’s honesty.
These next two (and a few others in this post) were by my 2nd photographer and friend, Rachel. I loved that they used oil lamps as a unity candle, and the family smiles in the background make the photo a favorite.
Knowing their toddler would love it, not to mention cousins and friends’ kids who were invited, they had a bunch of baby bounce houses nearby to keep the kiddos happy. Brilliant.
So when mom and dad get into a bit of a cake fight, it’s only natural for the little one to try it out herself!
Anniversary dances are slowly becoming a wedding favorite. It’s a great time to celebrate long-lasting marriages. Besides, these couples usually know a thing or two about rocking the dance floor!
I love when I say, “I know you’re having a great time and you might be done with photos, but would you want to come away for a few minutes for a few more portraits?” and the couple literally jumps at the chance.
I hope you two are enjoying your happily ever after!
