We had back-to-back purple-themed weddings with the same exact bridesmaid dresses, yet, each wedding had a completely distinctive style of its own. Amber and Brian threw a spectacular celebration for their family and friends. Over the years of photographing countless weddings, we see more and more couples that come together through what Amber jokingly says, “the old fashioned way… online.” ;)
Some of the elements from their wedding that stand out to me… Amber’s parents’ gorgeous backyard as a perfect setting, a custom-made cigar bar around a tree trunk built by Amber’s father, cheeseburger sliders and chocolate milk shake shots at the end of the night, and fireworks!
On their wedding website, it stated, “If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you’ve made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand.” (Anonymous) That evening, the sky was peppered with stars that shined clear and bright, if that is any indication. Hun even captured a shooting star!
Amber and Brian, thank you for showing us that true love can be found in unexpected places, and that it is as sweet and beautiful as the two of you.
