It is really amazing how much you can learn about someone by watching them on their wedding day. I noticed so many things that I hadn’t noticed on the engagement shoot. I noticed that Amanda touches her nose when she is going to cry, her sister does this as well. I noticed that when Amanda and Skylyr laugh together their heads tilt in the same way. I learned that the moment Amanda was next to Skylyr holding his hand for a prayer, in which they did not see leach other that Amanda could breathe easier. It was a beautiful, joyful day full of emotion. It was also a hot one as this summer has been consistent. So after a lovely ceremony at The President Hotel, we made quick use of our outside time to capture some fun shots of the bride and groom and wedding party. And a big thank you to my second shooter, Mike, for all his help With both of us shooting we made great use of the 25 minutes we ventured outside after the ceremony The reception was elegant, and had some very fun surprises you will see further down the post!
I will start with Amanda’s beautiful dress that fit her so perfectly!
Amanda has the loveliest eyes
And the handsome groom to be!
I love how amazing Amanda looks in this dress!
They had the sweetest prayer time before the ceremony, where they were careful not to see each other
And they are married!!!
The flowers were by Dan Meiners. He always does such a wonderful job!
Before Amanda and Skylyr had their first dance, he surprised her by serenading her on the dance floor!!!!
Ok, so this dancing shot is kind of funny I just happened to catch an expression and the lights in the background at the right time to look like Amanda is eating a glowing lightbulb, lol!
And the real sweet one
And Amanda had a bit of a surprise planned herself! While a bit of their story was being told of how Skylyr had arranged for the jumbotron at the Royals game to say “Thank you for saying yes” after he proposed, Slugger came running in for a surprise!!! It was so awesome to see the look on everyone’s face!!!
The view from the President gets me every time! So cool!
congratulations!!!!! And I wish you two a lifetime of hugs and kisses!
Britni & Jonathan’s wedding was my last wedding of 2010 and it was a great way to end a great year of weddings! Sometimes I really am overcomed by how beautiful a girl can be on her wedding day. I already knew Britni was gorgeous and Jonathan handsome as well, but when Britni walked in the Indian Hills Country Club I literally gasped. I am sure Jonathon would agree
It was a wonderful day and everyone in the bridal party was so much fun! We had perfect weather for strolling around the golf course and the fall colors were still awesome! And we had some dreamy light to shoot in!
One thing I wanted to share with everyone is something I was feeling when I left the reception. Besides a little tired, lol, I felt grateful. I know a lot of photographers who will not touch weddings with a ten foot pole, lol. But all of the hard work and preparation is worth it to be a part of two people’s lives in a way that is hard to describe. During the best man’s speech, Britni’s sister’s speech and Britni’s father’s speech, I really felt like I knew them so much better. To have a best friend or family member talk of your life, your love and your character is really something special. After learning so much more about these two and their families, I am so very sure of their future happiness and success.
Also would love to thank my second shooter Kathy and my assistant Melissa for making my job easier
I did say stunning, right?
I love this shot of the boys watching youtube videos on bowties
Britni & Jonathon’s first time to see each other on their wedding day!
Hello gorgeous girls!!!

I was a little obsessed with fun leaf shots
Did I mention dreamy light?!?!
More leaf fun
They cake was so awesome! I am not sure you can tell by this photo, but the cake was sparkly too
Congratulations again!!!! ~xoxo Tracy
