We had the awesome opportunity to work with David and Amanda twice before their wedding day, so once the big day got here, we really knew and loved this sweet couple and were so incredibly excited to be able to document this special day in their lives! We were able to take their Kentucky Derby themed engagement session portraits (See them here!!) and their precious little boy, David’s, six month portraits with his sister Cadence (See them here!!), so we knew that if the wedding day involved this family, it was bound to be a fun day! :) They are all so kind, down to earth, easy to talk to, and all clearly love each other dearly! When David and Amanda had their saw each other for the first time on their wedding day during their first look, that love was incredibly evident. David just kept looking her over and then staring into her eyes like he had never seen someone more beautiful in his life, and I truly believe in his eyes he hadn’t :) Then when their sweet little David who had been with family all day long finally came to see them less than an hour before the ceremony, they just squealed and squeezed him so tightly like they hadn’t seen him in ages. So needless to say, it wasn’t too difficult for us to capture the joy and adoration that was incredibly palpable to everyone around!
Another thing that made this wedding a blast to photograph was their unique New Orleans themed reception! Amanda is originally from New Orleans, so she knew from the beginning that she wanted that flare and excitement that the city holds to be a central theme of the day! So from their sleek street sign centerpieces, to their mardi gras mask wedding topper and their entertaining reception entrance, it definitely captured the essence Amanda was looking for! Debra Harris of Visions by Debra was the wedding coordinator for the event, and she never fails to do an incredible job! The whole place looked incredibly gorgeous and set the tone for an amazing evening.
Curlin family, we’ve loved getting to know you guys and being able to document this incredibly special and exciting time! You all are a truly wonderful group, and we’ve loved every second of working with you :) We wish you all the best and pray for so many more blessings in your lives!
