Amanda & Michael had their wedding at one of the most beautiful venues around. They had a beautiful afternoon & evening for a wedding. Here are some thoughts from Amanda on her day.
I was the girl who started planning my wedding at age 5. I am your typical girly girl who dreamed that one day her prince charming would sweep her off her feet. Our wedding was beyond my expectations, my 5 year old fantasy come true. These dreams would not have been granted without the worlds best parents and a great group of vendors.
All of our vendors were beyond accommodating. The Ashford Estate and Merri Makers were a pleasure to work with. A huge shout out to Laura from Merri Makers who helped make our vision a reality, she created a flawless evening for our friends and family. Bonnie from Petal Beach did a phenomenal job with our flowers and center pieces. They were truly a piece of art. The Groove Shop kept the dance floor packed all night long, and Northeast Horizons Cinematography captured it all on film. As you will see below, we also had a pretty top notch photographer. Thank you Jeff for capturing our day so beautifully. We loved working with you and our bridal party is still talking about how cool you are ;-).
Lastly, a huge thank you to my wedding planner, organizer, and confidant- Mom. This day would not have run as smoothly or have been nearly as beautiful without your help, love, and guidance.
Thank you Amanda for sharing. Here are a few favorites from the day.

Amanda gave all the bridesmaids personalized robes with their initials on them.
Loved how happy Amanda was seeing her reflection for the first time as a bride while the proud dad looks on in the back.
Love this shot. Dad admiring his beautiful daughter.
Amanda & mom having a moment together.
Amanda looked amazing.
This was Drew's idea. We don't do gazebo shots UNLESS we can do them different. Amazing shot!
Loved the next series of shots down the tree lined road heading into the estate.
Just a few of the details. Got to give props to dad. He designed the sign that had mileage charts & locations from the places all the guests came from to be at the wedding.
Thought the bookcase would make a great backdrop for a shot.
Loved the expressions and excitement in this series of pics.
