Online dating!! 🙂 We met for lunch at Thai Taste at the end of July 2015.
Having Ryah join us at the alter to do the unity ceremony of braiding the ropes to show the joining of our family with God. We were all so relaxed during the process and really enjoyed the moment.
What was the best advice given to you for your big day?
No one knows the plan but you. If something doesn’t happen, let it go.
What was the funniest part of the day that you recall?
When Chris (officiant) started to speak about he meaning of the rings, looks up and says, “I don’t have the rings!” I replied “That’s a problem,” and turned to the guests to ask, “Does anyone have some rings?” Then Chad’s brother Chris jumps up and heel-clicks over a boulder to hand over the rings to the officiant!
What made you trust Brit Nicole to capture the most important parts of your wedding day?
I saw Brit work on another wedding for my best friend and she kept everything super low stress and fun. That’s what I wanted.
We woke up at 5 am and drove almost an hour to get to THE BEST SPOT for a sunrise first look. It was windy as crap and super cold but it was the most epic first looks I’ve ever had the pleasure to witness. It was the most fun I’ve ever had at 5 am…. Chad and Amanda are mother freaking hilarious, not one time did they complain about the weather or time. Ideal clients to say the least.
