It’s not often that we have the opportunity of getting to know our couples for over 2 years before their wedding! Amanda & Joe were engaged on October 7, 2011. We were there and we’ve all been friends ever since! They are two of the most kind hearted and generous people you will ever meet- with so much love to share. This winter wedding began with a church ceremony followed by a classic evening affair at Westbury Manor. Their details were both elegant & fun! I absolutely love the grape colored bridesmaids dresses with red flowers- what a lovely color combination! One of my favorite things about this wedding were the magical wintery centerpieces created by Pedestals Floral Decorators which really set the mood for the night. In most weddings, the bride plans all the details, and the groom doesn’t have much say! I mean, boys will be boys, right? But this wedding was pretty evenly balanced- Joe made some decisions along the way! So there were some awesomely-fun details going on, such as the Mario & Peach Ice Sculpture- which for any Nintendo fan, this is amazing! As well as Xbox 360 cufflinks and a Mickey & Minnie Mouse Cake Topper- because of their love of all things Disney. It was an incredibly special day for these lovebirdsAnd we even had some time for romantic photos in the rain! How perfect!
