OK girl, get it!

Meet our beautiful bride, Amanda!

Amanda is so sweet and we loved working with her!

For her summer wedding she chose a fitted Stella York gown with a ruffle bottom and she was an absolute knockout!

Before walking down the aisle, Amanda got ready with her favorite girls {including one adorable flower girl}!

Before saying “I Do”, Amanda wanted to have some time with her future husband.

Here’s the moment Brady finally got to see his bride…

They are so darn cute!
Amanda and Brady were married at the Jasper County Fairgrounds.

The backdrop was nothing but wide open spaces. In other words, perfection..

After the ceremony guests stayed at the fairgrounds for the reception!

Beautiful flowers from Forget Me Not Floral, cake and other goodies decorated the space.

At the end of the night, Amanda and Brady left in style with their sparkler send off!

Beautiful!

Amanda and Brady met in elementary school..

“We met in the 5th grade. We dated for a little bit, broke up until senior year and have been together ever since. 7 1/2 years going strong.”

Just wait until you hear how Brady popped the question!

“I was proposed to at my sister’s wedding during the bouquet toss. My whole family had it planned out and it was amazing! I was in total shock!

I had no idea he was going to propose, I knew we would get married at some point I just never knew when!”

Her sister, another SBB bride, came up with that plan! How sweet is that?!

OK, let’s talk dresses…

“My dress buying experience was amazing! I took my mom, sister, brother and a friend from work! I had them all pick out dresses they wanted me to try on. The dress I ended up getting was a last moment from my sister "wait look at this one really fast" I saw it, tried it on first, and that’s the one I bought!

I knew it was the one because it was different when I put it on I instantly said i loved it! I was smiling from ear to ear!”

What did Amanda love about the wedding planning process?

“I have been in 5 weddings and it was just nice to take advice from friends and family and make my wedding my own. Simple and elegant.”

What was her favorite moment from the wedding?

“My favorite was our sparkler send off! It was just so great to be able to see everyone with the pretty lights celebrating mine and my new husbands lives together!”

Any advice for brides currently planning their own wedding?

“My mind set was "everything happens for a reason" I went in with such a stress free mind and everything went absolutely perfect! I honestly couldn't of asked for a better day!

The best advice is to NOT STRESS!!! Your day will end up just as amazing as you want it to be. The day is gone with a blink of an eye! A great friend told me, while you sit and eat your dinner you and your new life partner take a moment to look around the reception and just appreciate all the love and support you have around you! It's an amazing feeling!”
