The word that keeps coming to mind when I think about Amanda and Derek’s wedding day is joy. Saying that they were happy on their wedding day doesn’t feel like it conveys just how happy they both were. Their Fresh Air Farm wedding could not have been more beautiful. From Amanda’s stunning blush and floral wedding gown, to the personal details, to the yard games, and an incredible fireworks display the day was perfect. But all of that pales in comparison to the joy that Amanda and Derek not only share with each other but that they radiate to all of those around them. Their day focused on sharing time and the things they love with the people that they love and it made all the more beautiful. Enjoy!
From my bride, Amanda:
Favorite Moment of the Day: I answered this question last because I can’t pick one moment honestly. From seeing his face when I stepped into the aisle and washing each other’s feet, to the ice cream cutting, to the fist dance, to the band, and yard games, and seeing all of our friends and family at a farm, and fireworks. I really can’t decide.
Inspiration for the wedding: The wedding dress! I used the colors and flowers from the dress to create the rest of the wedding. After that I combined our styles of adventure, vintage, and pearls.
Advice to brides planning in the future: Ask people for help! People want to help but need tasks and get tired of asking you for things you need. You don’t have to do it all on your own.
A huge thank you to my second photographer Sara Cantrell.
