Amanda and Christina knew they wanted to get married on national teddy bear day because it was an important date to the two of them. Also they call each other “bear” which is super cute. When they were putting together the wedding budget they realized there wasn’t much left when it came to photography. They had almost considered not having a professional photographer….WHAT! I would never let that happen with anyone especially someone I know. Amanda is a very good friend of my sister, she was a bridesmaid in the wedding. Since she has been with Christina for 10 years I would say that Christina is also a great friend too. We put together a custom package option that worked perfect for their time schedule and wedding budget. We are always willing to work with couples because if you don’t have a professional photographer at your wedding then how will you remember all the special moments and details. I was happy to start out the day at their house to get a few photos of them getting ready before we headed to the park. With the reception immediately following the ceremony it worked out best to do all the photos beforehand. After a couple rainy days prior the sun came out to shine on these lovely ladies. We enjoyed some jokes and laughs at the park and then headed to the private ceremony. Only close family and friends were in attendance. It was so special because everyone had a great view of the event, as they concluded everything with a hand fasting ceremony that included both sides of the family. Moving to the reception it was time to party! They were introduced and went straight into some great toast by the best man and maid of honor. I could really see how much the relationship of Amanda and Christina effects those around them. It was a very special moment. Why not conclude the evening with a sparkler send off – their love will now and forever sparkle for them and those around. Thanks for deciding to have a professional at your event. It was perfect!
