Ever since the snow started to fall I have been reminiscing about sweet Amanda's wedding last January! I can't believe it has almost been a year! She wanted a winter fairy tale wedding and by goly that is what she got! The week leading up to the wedding I watched the news in worry that we wouldn't be able to get to the wedding. The storm was supposed to come in hard on Thursday night/ Friday morning and her wedding was on Sunday. She was saying "I do" in Henderson, NC and truly I wasn't sure we were gonna make it. But every time I called Amanda to update her and reassure her that we were going to do everything we could to make it there she was just as cool as a cucumber! We ended up digging out my car on Saturday and driving in the night before!
See her and her fiance, and her mom and dad knew what was important. The vows. The commitment. Sure, she wanted all of their friends and family there and she wanted things to go off without a hitch but at the end of the day if she got to marry Will nothing else mattered! Now that's a love story. But she got it. Snow, Family, Friends, and the love of her life, Will.
She got it all. She got her dream! It was incredible to watch her vendors come in one by one, making the day happen. Only one of her vendors was from Henderson, the rest of us came in from Raleigh, Greensboro, and even Wilmington! But we got there! OH And her dad! THAT MAN IS A SAINT! If Amanda needed it, he made it happen. If her mother needed something, he made it happen. When we said we would have to come in a night early, "No problem it's taken care of" And all with a smile on his face. Chick Fil A on a Sunday? NO PROBLEM! That's right when your daughter wants Chick Fil A on her wedding day you make it happen. PS. It doesn't hurt that they own one ;)
When Brooke and I left we couldn't stop talking about what a genuine couple they were, how in love they were and what an INCREDIBLE family we got to be a part of for the day! We truly felt at home with this entire bridal party! And we love reminiscing through their wedding day!
Happy Almost Anniversary you two! We truly hope it has been the best year of your lives!
