Amanda and I first met when our horses shared a farm for a short time. She's got the best laugh and she's a wonderful horse woman. When she needed photography, she caught up with LDE to capture her photos. She wrote the blog post listed below to talk about her special day. We were so honored to capture their wedding.
Michael and I met 9 years ago through mutual friends playing basketball. Mike popped the question over a private dinner with just the two of us. Our private, family ceremony took place at my (Amanda’s) mom house. A party was held the next day with all our friends at a rec center. My experience during the wedding was awesome after the nerves went away!! The advice that I have for other couples is to hire LDE Photography to capture their wedding. From what I have seen so far, AMAZING! We did not want to see each other the day of, we took photos after. I stayed the night prior at my mom’s house and he stayed at his mom’s house.
What did you like about the schedule of photos? We loved how professional it was and I didn’t even think about them being there taking pics during it like I thought I would. From what I have seen, the pictures are beautiful, things were captured that wouldn’t have been if just anyone had taken the pictures.
Any tips of how to prepare for wedding photos? Relax, voice what you want.
I was not a bridezilla type, I just wanted to marry him, didn’t stress too much over the small things.
Our vendors: Our wedding was very small, the only thing we had catered was the cake from Publix and it was awesome.
I do not like being the center of attention, even on an occasion like this, so I was very nervous saying our vows in front of people, even thought it was only our immediate family. I relaxed when I saw him though, and he was very calm!
My advice: Don’t stress, most people anticipate only doing this one time, make it memorable and enjoy yourself. If you lose yourself getting caught up in the small, meaningless things, it takes away from the fact that the two of you are making a commitment before God to share your lives together. That is bigger than any small detail.
Dave and I wish them THE BEST always!!
