I met Amanda through my college roommate years ago.. and was so excited when she asked me to do the honors of photographing her and Jordan’s big day. I remember when she first started dating her husband about the same time I started dating mine, and sharing our new-relationship stories by a campfire years ago..now getting to see the beginning of their story unfold is so special.
Amanda + Jordan got married at Olive + June on May 25th, in Austin Texas on Memorial weekend! The next day was actually my husband and I’s anniversary… and what better way to spend a wedding anniversary… than being an important part of someone else’s (shout out to my husband who did a fantastic job shooting next to me as my second shooter). I met Amanda at her hotel as she was getting ready and did some getting ready shots before heading over to Olive + June to set up. As soon as I arrived to the restaurant, I knew it was going to be an absolutely gorgeous evening… the bouquet was drop-dead-peony-gorgeous, the centerpieces and silverware were perfectly lined up with Amanda + Jordan menu’s.. name tags…. and gorgeous lit up candles in the ceremony room. The whole evening was fun, sweet, touching, intimate, and romantic. When Amanda’s parents walked her down the aisle, Jordan couldn’t take his eyes off of her. She was absolutely stunning in her champagne lace gown. I heard someone say they “had never seen a bride as beautiful”. I loved watching them throughout the night, SO completely in love… we even caught them in a private dance in the middle of the reception… not worried about anything else and just enjoying their day. It is so hard sometimes as a couple to get to relax and enjoy the evening and take everything in, but they did just that.
There was laughter and tears throughout the night, but most of all SO much love at their perfect intimate ceremony. Enjoy some of my (very hard to narrow down) favorites from their day. Thank you for allowing me to capture this memory for you both!! Congratulations you guys!!
