I feel like a broken record sometimes when I gush on about my couples, but somehow I seriously love ALL OF THESE PEOPLE that I get to work with?! How does that happen?! Mandy and Anthony got married last weekend and they are definitely no exception- we had so many laughs and great times, both during their engagement session and their wedding day. It amazes me how in such a short time people who were once strangers to me end up being someone who I adore and get to watch the beginning of their lives together.

Mandy and Anthony met in December of 2018 through Mandy’s Maid of Honor. They both asked her about the other, but didn’t officially start dating until the following June. Anthony (“finally” according to Mandy haha- LOVE) proposed in December of 2021. Now they live together with their BEAUTIFUL dog Lily, I was so lucky to meet her during their engagement session this past winter (she’s THE CUTEST).  They got married this past Saturday (July 16), at Mystic Lake Center, which had no shortage for gorgeous outdoor spots for photos.

Their wedding day was full of moments that were perfect for them- Even with the humidity (It was HOT!) during Mandy and Anthony’s first look and portraits, the day was absolutely beautifully and and really went off without a hitch.

A few moments I’ll remember-  I loved that they planted a unity tree during their ceremony with dirt that came from places important to them. Another thing I loved was this bridal party!!! I kept being “warned” that they’d be rowdy- but I swear those are my favorite kinds! Give me ALLLL the personality, I like a bridal party that likes to have a little fun- you can definitely tell in these images what a great time they were having together- even out in the heat (did I mention it was HOT, Muggy, HOT out?).

Mandy and Anthony, I hope you are having the best start to married life, but for now, here are a few of my favorite images.
