Oh goodness, I don't even know where to begin. Amanda and Nick had the most beautiful wedding in May, and they deserved every second of that beautiful day. These two have hearts of gold, and they planned every last detail, including adding a bunch of extra cupcakes and cookie dough shooters to their dessert count so their photographers could take some home at the end of the night. Ha!
Honestly though, I knew these two were special when we met a year ago to discuss their wedding day. They were real, down to earth, and up for anything. Ideal clients for me. We had their engagement session in Taylor's Falls last October and it's still one of my favorites to date. They included their dogs in their session, and their love for their sweet pups spilled over into their wedding day in the sweetest ways – sharing dog biscuits as wedding favors, and wrapping Amanda's bouquet with the tags of their pup that had recently passed. They are absolutely hilarious, and their wedding party was too — giving the day a lighthearted, goofy, yet full of love feeling. I've never laughed that much at a wedding.
I can't even explain their decor. Like, the florals they had were just — I mean, absolutely outstanding. Jamie from Pristine Floral helped Amanda's vision come to life with a full greenery overhang above the head table, a copper arch backdrop with florals for their ceremony, copper and blush accents with garden roses and eucalyptus everywhere, and the sweetest surprises, like the floral crown on their flower girl. Amanda & Nick's friends and family helped create a lot of the other decor, including the welcome sign (don't miss that!) and that insane dessert table.
Congratulations you two, and thank you for letting me be a part of your incredible story!
