Have you ever been in the presence of a couple, thats love is so real and raw you can feel it yourself? Thats Brandon and Amanda. Every time I have had them in front of my camera, I get an even deeper sense at just how crazy they are about one another. And let me tell ya, they have been in front of my camera so many times! Brandon has been quite the trooper, participating and humoring us with all our creative ideas. But thats just it. Thats how much he loves her! He has willingly stepped in front of my camera more times than most husbands do in the first 5 years of marriage. You can see it when you’re around them. The way he stares into her eyes, how she fits so perfectly into his arms. Its a happily ever after story for the ages.
One of the many things I loved about this wedding was the people Brandon and Amanda chose to surround themselves with. Every person I had the pleasure of meeting was a combination of kind, fun and generous. Not to mention, hilarious. The best man gave a speech that had me cracking up! Although, I might be a little biased. His speech started out with.. “It is a love based of giving and receiving as well as having and sharing. And the love that they give and have is shared and received. And through this having and giving and sharing and receiving, we too can share and love and have… and receive”. Followed by a room full of belly laughs. Which was an even bigger reflection to me of the people that were there to celebrate them. Just like Amanda, they are FRIENDS fans. If you know anything about me, it is that I usually have friends playing in the background of my daily life. There was a variety of speeches given, some heartfelt, some more humorous. It was a perfect way to commemorate the joining of these two sweet souls becoming one.
Thank you for having me be apart of your day! I feel so honored to be invited into your families lives to both witness and capture this memory. This will be your first family heirloom as a new Barnhart duo, and I couldn’t be happier to have been chosen to be your photographer. You both are such lovely souls, and I am so grateful that you found each other and that you allowed God to write your love story- 10 years in the making. Its hard to imagine you being any more amazing and impactful, but together you will be even more than you were apart. Thank you again, and I love you dearly!
