Amanda and James are a fun loving couple and on their wedding day, touches of their playfulness could be found everywhere. Amanda chose a beautiful flower patterned wedding dress with a small, scooping train with a small rhinestone belt accent, but it were her bright pink Converse high tops that stole the show. The floral bouquets were multi-colored and the bridesmaids all wore orange dresses that were all styled differently for every girl.
The first of April was a little chilly by the ocean for photos, but the couple happily dealt with the temperature as we took photos with a sunset as the backdrop, the wind sweeping the reeds in the sand only adding to the stunning detail.
Kings Creek Marina provided a great location for other photos earlier in the day, and the couple enjoyed a bright and sunny day at the waters edge taking photos with their wedding party, all laughing and smiling. The bright blue of the marina's exterior only added to the photos with a pop of color against Amanda's white dress and James' grey suit.
At the reception, touches that represented Amanda and James could be found all over, from a little Lego diorama featuring the couple outside of a house, to a large J + A that was done with differently colored Lego pieces as well. Even their cake featured an adorable Lego bride and groom, and had orange colored Lego pieces made of fondant circling the cake. There was even a fantastic sundae bar for guests to partake in before taking to the dance floor and joining the newlyweds as they danced the night away with their wedding party.
Congratulations Amanda and James!
