Amanda + Scott
When Amanda initially reached out to me about having me photograph her wedding, I immediately had a good feeling about her. She told me about her and Scott, how he proposed in Colorado, and about their six year old son, Calvin. She seemed easy going (very hakuna matata) and gave me the impression she was excited about her wedding day, but not fussing about it too much. While I can't fully attest to how she handled the stress of wedding planning behind the scenes, working with her and Scott was nothing short of a breeze. The couple seemed very open to my suggestions, the only thing they really wanted to ensure was that they got to be a part of their own day. So often, couples are rushing from moment to moment and don't have time to truly enjoy their wedding day. Of course, some of that is unavoidable, but from my vantage point, I think Amanda + Scott had a great time at their wedding! The weather cooperated (it seriously had us on pins and needles, Scott told me that he only slept 3 hours the night before because he was so worried about the forecast) and the couple got to hang outside for near the entirety of their big day.
Amanda and Scott were married on September 1, 2018 under the big willow trees at The Barn at Harvest Moon Pond in Poynette, WI. The indoor space is a barn, but the property surrounding it consists of trails, greenery, trees, pastures, the big willows, and of course, a pond. Amanda wanted more of a garden party feel to her day - and luckily, that's exactly what happened! We strolled over to the gravel paths for her bridal party portraits, family photos were taken under the willows, the couple snuck away for some sunset photos near the pond & the trees in the front yard, and dancing took place under the open sky as the sun settled below the horizon. A few guests brought their dogs, including Libby the 17 year old Corgi, and guests could relax and catch up with one another or partake in the yard games. It was absolutely lovely and truly the perfect late-summer outdoor wedding.
