Wedding

Adam & Amie | Thought Design | Rockford, Michigan Wedding

You know, let's be honest, I ALWAYS get super nervous before a wedding. But on June 2nd at Amie & Adam's wedding, it was a whole different kind of nervous. Why? Because I had NEVER met the couple! Amie & I did all our coordinating and planning over my facebook business page! BUT let me tell you, the nerves went out the window when I met Amie! She is the sweetest woman! She was so kind & always smiling. Adam was so nice & a goofball lol. Let's take a look in to their beautiful day!

Amie's make up artist was Rachel Wilson and she did an amazing job!

& LOOK at these GORGEOUS shoes!! Probably my favorite bridal shoes ever.

Amie did the flower arrangements herself! I was only supposed to be there at the first look until reception, so I wasn't able to get Adam's getting ready because he was setting it all up while Amie got ready. I was lucky to sneak a few of her and her details.

It was quickly time for the FIRST LOOK
And Adam did NOT dissappoint. The look he gave his bride and the tears of pure joy and love were beautiful to watch!

The bridal party below was so fun! Jennie instantly greeted my 2nd shooter and I and let us know all the details and helped us get all set up and kept me in the loop! She was great! Adam's best man was so fun and laid back! A small bridal party was perfect for this intimate day!

Amie slipped on a gorgeous cover to suprise Adam with a different look. It was absolutely beautiful. I ADORE it soo much! It helped keep the romantic mood going.

Time for the ceremony! & it was PERFECT! Adam & his dad, who also officiated, walked hand in hand to the front of the gazebo. Amie was walked down the aisle by her son, Nate. They exchanged their own written vows. They both laughed, they both cried. They both are so in love. It was moving to watch Adam speak about how Amie is his sun. And Amie speak about Adam being the one who completes her. They met 6 years ago and it's been an amazing time. Now they're on to the next chapter in life, marriage. I'm so happy for you both! Here are my favorites from this love, laughter, and tear filled ceremony.
