Amanda + Blaine { Raven Rock Golf Course }

“I don’t believe in magic.”

The young boy said.

The old man smiled.

“You will, when you see her.”

~ Atticus

From across the room, Blaine noticed a blue-eyed girl… dark hair and flawless, Amanda. A smile to brighten any day she noticed him too. She sent him a friend request on Facebook… maybe, just maybe he noticed her too. He did. From brief messages to multiple texts, they hit it off from the first hello. Inseparable since, Blaine decided to make it official, privately on their weekend getaway in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Her answer was a definite YES and smiling : )

A ring fit for a princess.

My very first time shooting on a mobile getting ready location~ a hotel on wheels motor coach.

The wedding colors were dusty grey blue and creams. The bridesmaids don versatile dresses ‘Versa’ by David’s Bridal in the color ‘mystic’…. convertible to multiple dresses too flatter any body type and height.

No wedding is complete without selfies to document the pre-wedding festivities and pampering : )


Multi-talented Amanda, meticulously made all the hand tied bouquets, flower crown and ceremony arch. Her favorite florals include white and a hint of blush pink peonies, lush garden spray roses, accented with white carnations and aptly named white and light green blooms called love-in-the-mist Nigella damascene ‘Albion Green Pod’. Classic and timeless.

Amanda and her sweet princess niece, Braelee.

{ This would be a neat photo to revisit 20+ years from now on her wedding day.}

Mimosas for all her lovelies. Of course.

Simplicity at its finest. Stella York dress with an illusion and lace neckline, fairytale silhouettes and romantic lace details throughout. So beautiful.

Blaine chose a dark grey suit with navy bowtie and comfortable chucks.

Their sweet first look, rain or shine…

She is my world after the rain.

“Completely and perfectly and incandescently happy.”

~ Jane Austen

I g.o.t. this.
