Where do I even begin about this wedding?! It was so incredibly special to share in Amanda & Paul’s wedding day – Amanda and I have been friends since grade school, and documenting her wedding day is something I will not soon forget. It took me sooooo long to narrow down photos for this blog post – and I’m still posting more than what I usually do! Sorry I’m not sorry. 😉
Amanda & Paul are such a sweet couple. And they have some of the best friends and family (including one of the sweetest pups I’ve ever met, Nymeria). Many of their guests traveled from all over the United States to share in their day, which took place at the beautiful Deer Park Manor in Bloomington, IN. A large rain storm moved in just after Amanda & Paul shared their First Look, but no worries, the whole bridal party ventured downtown to Big Woods Bloomington/Quaff ON to relax, have a few drinks, and enjoy each other’s company. This is what a wedding should be about, right?! (Easily one of my favorite parts of the day.) By the time we came back to Deer Park Manor, the rain had all but stopped, and many friends and family helped to dry off guest seats and get things back into their rightful places for the beautiful outdoor ceremony. The entire day came together perfectly.
I could go on and on about all the impeccable details of the wedding (which were handmade by Amanda’s mama, Teresa), or about the incredibly thoughtful vows that were read during the ceremony, or about the rockin’ dance party during the reception – but really, I should just shhhhhhush because the photos are better than any words I type here. 😉 Amanda & Paul, we wish you all the love and happiness in the world, and can’t wait to see you again soon. xoxo
