Chris (Christopher, Coop, he has many names) and Amanda had their first date just after Christmas on December 29th so it was absolutely perfect that the church and country club had that date available for their wedding! How special is it to have your wedding on the same day you went on your first date!? Their Christmas inspired theme was so fitting and OM MY GOSH was it beautiful.
When you think of a Christmas inspired wedding, you think fun! Not only was their wedding a blast, it was one of the most beautiful and tasteful wedding’s I’ve ever shot! When I decorate my home for the holidays, it looks like Christmas threw up all over it; mismatched stockings, colorful lights, and handmade ornaments (from preschoolers, ya’ll). My house is super tacky come Christmas time. Chris and Amanda’s wedding is what I wish my home looked like at Christmas time! everything about it was absolutely stunning!
Her bouquet is made of silk flowers and I’m obsessed! It will never die and she can use it as a centerpiece in her home for years to come. I can picture that on our dining room table, actually. Amanda, I know you loved the idea that you get to keep your bouquet forever, but if you ever get the urge to throw it away, it would look amazing in my dining room ;).
Their wedding day was perfect, even with Chris FORGETTING TO BRING THE RINGS into the ceremony! Luckily, one of Chris’s groomsmen had a class ring he let them borrow (Thanks Bryan! Check out his ring below). Ya’ll, for such a formal ceremony, this lightened the mood for the rest of the day! You may think “I’d kill him!” but I think it was awesome. They will NEVER forgot that moment and it’s such a good story to tell!
And she realizes he’s forgot the rings!
Thanks again, Bryan!
