Their wedding day dawned absolutely glorious and, as you can see in their photo to the left, it was a perfect day for a wedding.
When I arrived and went to find Amanda, I noticed that Amanda’s sister and best friend, who were also her Bridesmaids, had embroidered the wedding date on the bottom of Amanda’s dress. Of course, I couldn’t resist getting a photo of this, along with one of Amanda and her Bridesmaids in their gorgeous red dresses.
The ceremony was held on the sidewalk down by the water and this was the view of the wedding guests. Stunning!
Amanda’s Dad surprised her by wearing his military uniform and I would have loved to have seen her face when she first saw him! Here they are awaiting their cue to enter and then coming down the sidewalk to the aisle.
Amanda and Bart wanted to include a Sand Ceremony and here is a shot of the Sand table after the wedding was over. I love the interesting vase they chose for the sand and how the table is sparkling with the reflections of the sunshine and the lake in the background.
Eventually it was time for the wedding kiss and to recess out the aisle, heading for photos.
With such beautiful grounds, there were so many places to go to create memorable photographs.

At the end of the evening, Amanda and Bart made their exit through the uplifted sparklers of their family and friends. This is such a grand way to make an exit and so festive for a couple beginning a new life together as husband and wife.
Amanda and Bart, I know you are going to have a great life together. You are both such dynamic people and it is written in your wedding date what is to come. May every bit of it be fun to live and a joy to share with others.
