Amelia & Garth | Rustic Fall Burgundy & Gold Stevenson Ridge Wedding

Rustic Fall Burgundy & Gold Stevenson Ridge Wedding

the couple

Amelia & Garth have been the most laid back easy going couple I have ever worked with! When I first met with Amelia last year she had a question about having an uneven bridal party. So I put my mad drawing skillz to the test and drew a stick figure bridal party lineup as an example of what I would do. I like to think my stick figure bride and groom are what won her over, lol! Luckily I’m a better photographer than illustrator!

the day

Amelia’s supreme trust in her vendors allowed them to create amazing things for her wedding that she was only dreaming about! From the beautiful floral installation over the head table by Amanda Veronee. To the amazing 6 tier gold accented cake by BonnBoni. Even Mother Nature jumped on the bandwagon and delivered perfect 75 degree weather with sunny skies. The Moonshine Society brought down the house at the beautiful Stevenson Ridge reception!

the story

Every wedding I photograph leaves me with a new story about my couple, something I didn’t know about them or something funny that happened that day. It’s that story I think about when I look back on their wedding years later. For Amelia and Garth that story comes from a fabulously funny toast from Garth’s sister! We’ve all been in that new relationship and we are about to meet the family of our significant other. We all want to make a good impression, we get dressed up, make sure we look great and mind our manners like our parents taught us.

For us girls just like a first date we eat very little. Yes we starve ourselves for one meal because no one wants to look like a pig when you are trying to make a good first impression! Garth’s sister revealed though that Amelia is smarter than a lot of us ladies because she followed all the rules and then had Garth take her to Taco Bell after family dinners so she could really eat, lol! Brilliant!! Eventually though everyone came to feel comfortable and Garth didn’t have to take Amelia out for second dinners anymore ;).
