Amy and Eddie are very dear to my heart. I’ve known both of them for most of my life and consider them to be two of my closest friends. Overjoyed doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt to witness the two of them becoming husband and wife. I know this is going to sound corny, but what these two have is really extraordinary. They are a true example of best friends who happen to be lucky enough to have also fallen in love with one another.
Please enjoy part one of their wedding blog post, and forgive me for “over-posting.” I’ve found that it is much more difficult to narrow down photos of people that I love! This section will include getting ready, the first look, and the formal photos. The next post will include the ceremony, the details, and the dance party of the century!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Jennifer Wilson of Jennifer Lynn Photography and to my husband (and second shooter) Garrett, for making this day possible. When Amy asked if I could be in her wedding AND shoot it, my response was “Yes! But…not without Jen and Garrett…” The two of them shot the lion’s share of these images, and I am so grateful to them for it! Love you guys!
Amy and Eddie put a lot of time and effort into making their wedding party feel appreciated. They put together gift boxes that were just brimming with all kinds of goodies. Amy spoiled her bridesmaids (me included!) with a delicious pink sake “truth serum,” as well as Oakley flip-flops, jewelry, Epoch lotion, NuColor lip gloss, orange Oakley sunglasses, and more.
The groomsmen received their ties, argyle socks, a pair of (perfectly on theme) Oakley shades, and aged manhattans all packaged up in a cigar box. Seriously, this is one of the most thoughtful things I have ever seen a groom do for his groomsmen!
