Amanda and Mike had planned a unique, beautiful outdoor wedding of their dreams. So you would think that the gray skies and rain would have brought their spirits down, but there were smiles on their faces and an excitement in the air. They’d been looking forward to this day for a long time, and working towards a goal that no rain or gray skies could spoil. Surrounded with their family and close friends, Amanda and Mike made the trek from Carlinville IL to the Villa Marie Winery in Maryville for the beautiful ceremony that would change their lives.
Amanda managed to find the sassiest, hottest, killer shoes for her wedding day. LOVED these!
Amanda… wow. What a show stopper. You looked like a fox on your wedding day. Timeless beauty with a little bit of fierce. My favorite look! 😉And Mike – I don’t think we’d seen you smile as big as the smile you carried on your wedding day. Happiness looks good on ya!We need to give a huge thanks to our good friend Amanda from Dreaming Tree Photography. A nightmare come true – Roger woke up at 1am the day of Amanda and Mike’s wedding with stomach flu – throwing up uncontrollably. After a night of panicking and zero sleep, I called Amanda to see if she could help us. She heard the terror (and tears) in my voice and calmly said “Don’t worry. I’ll be there – what time?” We addressed the situation as we always say we would – push through and enlist great help. Roger still managed to be there when he needed to, and Amanda kept things running smoothly and blessed us and Amanda and Mike with her amazing talents. We can’t thank her enough for helping us!Even though their outdoor wedding became an indoor wedding – it was still magical.Favorite!When Amanda and I discussed her wedding day, I asked her to describe the reception. Her words? “blue, hot pink, damask, and as much glitter as possible without becoming tacky.” Amanda – you had me at glitter.The coolest cupcakes ever!Amanda & Mike – we can’t thank you enough for choosing us for your day. Being as your wedding was where we grew up and where we grow old – we feel like it was meant to be that you found us! Even under the weather, Roger had a great time and found your wedding party and families so kind and caring – and of corse… a great time. There are so many things about your day that we will never forget and we can thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of it. We know your lives are headed for happiness and love. Enjoy your happily ever after!!
