Amber and Jeff's wedding was breathtakingly gorgeous from start to finish. No detail was left undone at their Garden Party-themed wedding, and every guest came donned in a bow tie, floppy hat or pearls.
These two made sure their day was intimate and cozy and personal. I felt it from the minute I met Amber and Jeff at the spa that morning. They worked hard to include me and make me feel like a special part of the day; I can only imagine that their guests felt well-loved from start to finish.
Amber and Jeff, I've adored getting to know you over the last year. You both have the biggest hearts! I'm looking forward to grabbing that brunch at Fire. ;)
Amanda and Justin are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. They have the biggest hearts and their family and friends look up to them so much. I want to be like Amanda and Justin when I grow up. :)
These two have made it through thick and thin. Justin's a military man and has been all over the world in the last few years. And through it all, their relationship has not faltered. It's such a testament to their characters to hear their story and realize that though they're only in their early 20s, they have the maturity and commitment and compassion of people twice their age.
I could go on and on about these two, but I will let Nora, Amanda's maid of honor and best friend of nearly 10 years, tell you what is true and real about this bride. She gave the best and most sincere toast I've ever heard at a wedding:
"Amanda, you possess an inward, as well as an outward, beauty that is completely inignorable. You have the kindest heart of anybody that I know, and I love how you always stay true to yourself and your values. I have always and will always look up to you for that. Amanda makes all of those around her better."
And Nora couldn't forget about Justin:
"One of my favorite memories (of Justin) is when he came up to me one time when I was working and he was talking about Amanda. He looked me right in the eye and he said, 'Nora, I love her so much.'"
Seriously. Pull at my heart strings.
Amanda and Justin, I feel so blessed to have met you two. It really is true that you make those around you better, including me. I'm so looking forward to following your journey as a married couple, and I wish you all the best in North Carolina!
Almost the entire day took place at Goodell Gardens in Edinboro, Penn., and it was a beautiful backdrop for a wedding!
Everything about this day was so sweet, including Amanda seeing her dad for the first time.
Amanda, you are one gorgeous lady! She looks like Kirsten Dunst, don't you think?
Emily and I both agreed that Amanda and Justin got the BEST weather yet this year. The temperature was perfect, the clouds came and went at just the right time, and the sunset was gorgeous. All of that was super lucky because they had the most beautiful outdoor ceremony and reception. You know I can't wait to show you more of this wedding, but for now enjoy a few from this sweet couple's big day!
