This past Sunday Amanda and Brian finally celebrated their love with their nearest and dearest family and friends. Like many covid couples, they chose to keep their original wedding date and had an intimate ceremony at their home last May. Now, exactly one year later, they are celebrating again, but the way they had always envisioned, at the Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms. For a spring wedding, it felt more like July. HOT and HUMID! Sweat was pouring down everyone, but they were troopers with few complaints.
Amanda is a HUGE Harry Potter fan, so it is no surprise that Hogwarts made appearances from time to time throughout the day. The guys wore matching socks with cufflinks complimenting in design and Dumbledore himself married the couple. Okay, it was their friend dressed as Dumbledore, but he rocked that ceremony with talks of snogging and other popular Harry Potter terms.
The venue was picturesque for portraits! We began with Amanda and Brian's first look in a little courtyard outside of the Inn before walk through the field to the apple orchard. The reception was held overlooking a small pond with a fountain. A stunning ceremony location with the sun shining behind them.
The party really kicked off inside the barn where friends and family members enjoyed each others company (many for the first time in over a year). After a sweet first dance, sunset photos and Brian's dance with his Mom, people hopped onto the dance floor to enjoy the music. The kiddos most of all!
Amanda and Brian, you both were so incredibly sweet and a true joy to work with! Congrats on celebrating one year of marriage. Cheers to many, many more to come!!!
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!! Hugs, Joy
