Hola love lovers! June is one of the best months to have weddings, go to weddings and gush about them. Allow gush-fest 2015 to begin with Amanda and Chris. They were wed at Lilly Manor on a perfect September day. So, grab your favorite summer cocktail and a piece of tasty cake and let’s settle into this intimate, beautiful day.
Amanda and Chris purposefully planned a day focused on what’s most important — their family and friends. From the bride: “Our wedding is all about celebrating with our closest friends and family. We are hoping to make lots of memories [on the big day].”
Beautiful bride alert!
When asked what her favorite things are about Chris Amanda said “He never fails to impress me, always exceeding my expectations, his integrity, he gives the best hugs!” And Amanda, you forgot how great he cleans up!
One of my favorite things about John and Kimberly’s style of photography are the beautiful bride and groom portraits they capture. Some of my most cherished photos from our big day are the ones of MB, just him and his cute tux. Just the best.
A lot of people ask me what the most important thing (other than my darling husband) was from our wedding. Aside from all the feelings, it has been the photos — the one tangible thing I have to hold onto. I’m so happy to see that Amanda and Chris have these beautiful shots of how happy — and stunning — they and their friends looked that day.
Oh brides! Best idea ever! Make sure someone brings an invite so you remember those long labored hours spent on the computer picking fonts and paper weights!
Chris and Amanda were married at the gorgeous Lily Manor in Mifflin PA.
Chris could not look happier that Amanda met him at the end of the aisle!
Amanda and Chris had a very personal, touching ceremony which included a ring warming. From Amanda: We are doing a ring warming ceremony where the rings will be passed to all the guests during the ceremony, and they will “warm” them will their love and prayers”.
Hooray! They DO!
Now, let’s do some portraits!
I’m a huge fan of these artistic group photos.
Yum! Love in a field? Yes please!
This shot. Love on all levels.
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to party!
Amanda mentioned that their families like to get down. I have a feeling that this colorful party did not disappoint!
Congratulations Chris and Amanda! Wishing you nothing but love, kisses and happiness always!
