Amanda worked so hard to put her wedding together! And all of her work paid off because Amanda and Russell's wedding was great! All of their friends and family had a wonderful time and danced the night away. Of course, this wasn't all Amanda's doing. We found out at the reception that Russell also helped with the wedding planning. He decided which glasses he and Amanda would use during the reception. The fact that Amanda only gave him three to choose from isn't important. The important part is that he made a decision and contributed to the planning. Well done, Russell!!!
Their ceremony was at a very unique Catholic church. Often times, ceremony pictures in Catholic churches are a challenge. The lighting isn't always great and we are restricted from using flashes. This church had tons of natural light and 360 degree access to Amanda and Russell. That made taking pictures so much easier. After the ceremony, we went outside on the church grounds to snap a few pictures. It was HOT, but we worked quickly and got some really cute pictures! It helps when you have a big ol' man and a little skinny girl because he can pick her up with no problem. And, having a shiny, black muscle car for pictures is always fun!
Amanda and Russell, thank you both so much for letting us be a part of your day. You were both so kind to us and made Elena and I feel like old friends the entire day. We both had a fantastic time at your wedding. Congratulations again!!!
