Amanda & Spencer celebrated the commemoration of their eternal love with their friends and family on a beautiful September day. It was one of our favorite Fall weddings, to say the least! Once their big day began, laughter was already dancing through the air as Amanda and her bridesmaids sipped on some Champagne and got Amanda into her stunning dress!! (And, of course, we had to include a few pictures of their elegant wedding invitations and accessories!)
And then, it was time to show off the beautiful bride in her dress! Amanda's bridesmaids and mom and dad had such heartwarming reactions!
As Amanda and her bridesmaids prepared for the big day, Spencer and his Groomsmen put on the final touches in the nave of St. Elizabeth Seton Church, where they would say their "I do's" shortly after!
And finally, the time had arrived! Amanda and Spencer's family and friends began to file in until it was finally time for the Bride and her father to walk down the aisle, guided by the adorable ring bearers and flower girl!
These college sweethearts said, "I do," and walked down the aisle for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Martin! The excitement lighting up everyone's faces throughout the ceremony continued as Amanda and Spencer exited the church with their closest friends and family showering them with beautiful bubbles on their way out!
Then, it was time to head back in the church for some family photos! And, of course, with such a lovely fall day, we couldn't help but take some bridal party photos outdoors before heading to the reception! Amanda and Spencer have large families and so many friends they hold very close and dear to their hearts. So, one of the wishes for their wedding day was to capture the authentic love and happiness shared between all of their loved ones throughout their day, and I'm proud to say that I think we did just that!
After the bridal party photos, we went on a fun little walk around Arrowhead Golf Club with the bride and groom and marveled at the beautiful scenery while capturing some stunning photos! (Seriously, wait until you see the photos we got in one of Arrowhead's most beautiful locations!)
After some precious alone time between the bride and groom (and us, of course, haha!), we headed inside the venue! Inside, Amanda and Spencer cut their cake, shared their first dance, and made countless memories while we all danced the night away! This is such a joyous, fun-filled night to reflect on, and we are so honored we got to crystallize those memories for Amanda & Spencer through our work. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Martin - until we meet again!
And a quick thank you to all of the Wedding Pros that made this day possible!
