Ah this wedding! We kept telling Amberly that she looked like one of the insanely etherial elves from Lord of the Rings. Thankfully she took that as the compliment that we meant it as! She just looked angelic! From her baby’s breath crown, to the mismatched lace bridesmaids dresses set against the beautiful outdoor scenery, it was just breathtaking! We just had a wonderful time photographing every unique detail of the day. Uniqueness is one of the most fun things to document, and this day was full of unique and personalized details. During the adorable first look, Philip stopped and pulled some letters out of his pocket that they had written to one another earlier, and we got to watch as they read them together and Amberly quite literally jumped up and down at how loving and heartfelt her grooms words were. I mean how sweet are these guys?! Then when we got to the reception we were greeted with so many more personalized details that perfectly accentuated the woodsy theme of the day. Amberly’s mom had made terrariums as the centerpieces, their cake looked like tree bark with their initials carved into it, and the handmade bouquets and boutonnieres were made out of adorable little sheet music flowers! LOVE! Then after the ceremony, they shared their own beautiful choreographed first dance. It perfectly represented them and was a joy to watch!
Another thing that made this day so special was how they made sure to include their Lord and Savior throughout the day. The guests shared in a moment of singing worship songs during the ceremony as Amberly and Philip took turns washing each others feet. They even had the lyrics of the songs printed and set at each place setting so that everyone could sing along. It was truly beautiful and touching to watch. Their genuinely sweet personalities make them such a joy to be around and they truly show God’s love in all that they do!
Amberly and Philip, thank you guys so much for letting us be a part of your special day! We know you will have a beautiful marriage and we pray for so many blessings as you start this new chapter of your life!
