The first time I met Amanda and Steve was at their wedding, but it felt like seeing friends who I hadn’t seen in a while.
Amanda and I share a mutual friend from church, Bethanie. Some of you will recognize Bethanie in these photos 😉 Bethanie is sometimes my partner in crime (AKA my second photographer) on wedding days. Since Bethanie was a bridesmaid for Amanda, she gave her my info and we connected.
Through our consult, I learned Amanda and Steve’s reception venue happened to be where my daughter has horseback riding lessons. Their ceremony location? Y’all, Fort Bacon. When Amanda told me that, I knew it was going to be an awesome wedding right then and there. Over the course of a few months, I got to know this couple through emails and – of course- being Instagram friends.
What I love about this couple is their love for their friends and family, faith in each other, and ultimately their faith in the Lord. I loved following their adventures on Instagram as their wedding drew close; the packing up of Amanda’s apartment, the family candids, and large groups of friends surrounding them the day before.
It was an amazing wedding; Steve’s reaction was the cutest and the light during family portraits was the best I’ve ever seen.
Congratulations, Amanda and Steve! May the Lord bless your marriage; we love because He first loved us.
