Today I am so happy to share the images from Amanda and Cliff’s wedding day. Their day was filled with so many special moments that truly showed how close knit their families are. When my second shooter, Jenae, and I arrived at Amanda’s childhood home we were immediately welcomed by her family. Amanda’s mom was so kind and even fed us lunch while we waited for the girls to arrive at the house! Amanda and Cliff got married on a gorgeous fall day. The ceremony was held in Amanda’s hometown church and was co-officiated by her father. The reception was at Bessie’s Barn – complete with the most beautiful decor, centerpieces, and details.
Amanda and Cliff, thank you so much for trusting me to be you photographer! You had such an amazing day and am so lucky to have been there to capture it!
Shoes for the ceremony. Shoes for dancing.
The girls got ready in the most perfect room, full of natural light. It was perfect for getting ready and for photos!
I love this photo of Cliff and his grandfather.
One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is that moment right before the bride and her father walk down the aisle.
I usually don’t include family portraits in the blog post – but this one just makes me smile so much!
Amanda and Cliff will be going on a world tour (!!) for their honeymoon. All of the pins on the map show the stops that they’ll be making along the way!
Amanda and Cliff decided to have a Contra Dance before the DJ began. It was so much fun seeing everyone learn the dance and try to follow the directions that were called out.
