It’s really hard to explain just how much we love these two. They have every characteristic of the perfect Alisha Marie Couple and then some! They are relaxed, trusting, energetic, funny and very much in love! And that doesn’t even begin to describe Amanda and Chris! Humble, compassionate, loving…I seriously could just list adjectives that describe how great they are this entire blog post and still not do them justice. One of my favorite parts of the day was the start of the ceremony. Chris actually turned the the bridesmaids and said, “Oh, wow!” when he saw his stunning bride walking down the aisle. Of course, if she wasn’t tearing up already before that, she certainly was after (as was I!!!).
Amanda and Chris had a traditional Catholic mass for their ceremony at St. John the Baptist Church in Plum City, Wisconsin. The church was beautiful, but nothing compared to Amanda on her wedding day! She literally took my breath away! She couldn’t have worn a dress that was better for her and her cathedral veil was so beautiful and elegant. Amanda and Chris opted to not do a first look, but instead, prior to the ceremony, Amanda chose to have a first look with her father. SO sweet! Talk about things that make me tear up! Father-daughter first looks always get me!
After the ceremony, we got the pleasure of driving out the Kilkarney Golf Course in River Falls, Wisconsin. Let me just say, if you’ve never had the chance to go there, add it to your list! And as if a perfect couple, perfect venue, (AMAZING bridal party), and stunning moments weren’t enough- The weather was beyond perfect and the evening light was sooo good!
Every woman should find a man who looks at her like this: (both her father above and her husband below, Amanda is blessed)
Seriously. Sweetest little note ever. And couldn’t be more true!
Amanda’s dad MADE these chargers from trees off their land. Amanda’s parents also made the maple syrup, one of their favors.
Rose, Amanda’s mom made this cake!! SO pretty!
Amanda shared with me that her grandfather (who is no longer with us) bought this car and it meant a lot to him. I LOVED that she asked for this photo.
