{ Amanda and Joel :: Married! }

I’d been looking forward to Amanda and Joel’s wedding for a long time, especially after their dewy early-morning engagement session last fall. I met Amanda at Katherine & Austin’s wedding last summer.  Of all Katherine’s lovely and sweet bridesmaids, Amanda was the first one to offer a friendly smile and chatted with me over lunch. I was SO excited when she contacted me a few months later with her own good news! She and Joel are an amazing couple.  You can feel their love just being around them, and you can tell they’re excited to spend the rest of their lives together. In fact, I wish I could remember the exact words (Amanda, help me out!), but their actual vows included something like “and I’m so excited to spend the rest of my life with you”!  It was super cute, incredibly sweet, and got everyone in the room smiling and heart-fluttering for them. I loved it 🙂

I am so excited to share their wedding with you, which took place at Hudsonville Reformed Church, with a celebration at The Pinnacle Center. She had her hair done by the very talented Kristin Hilty of The Spare Room, makeup by Design 1 in Grandville, flowers were by Dahlia’s Florals, and tons of details were done by the couple themselves and their bridal party.  Everything came together so beautifully!

Her bouquet was absolutely delicious!  I love all the whites, purples, succulents…!!!
