Amanda & Steve: Highland Park United Methodist Church and Maple Manor

Amanda & Steve had one of the most emotion filled weddings I've documented recently. There was joy and tears flowing throughout the entire day and I have to confess, I too got caught up in the waterworks! Allow me to recap:

The bride cried as she read a sweet note from her groom-to-be:

The groom cried as he watched his beautiful bride approach down the aisle:

EVERYONE cried as Amanda's brother offered his toast to the bride and groom:

I assure you, there wasn't a dry eye in the house... including me:

In one of the most selfless gestures I've seen, the bride presented her grandparents with a cake in honor of their 55th wedding anniversary: I LOVE the reactions of those in the background...

You ask, did I cry again after witnessing this reaction from her grandmother? You bet I did!:

But let's be clear... it wasn't all tears that day. There were plenty of other emotions:




But let's not forget why we really love all this... the sheer BEAUTY of it all:

A special Thank You to all those that made this day perfect for Amanda & Steve:
