There were so many special things about this wedding.
The most special thing is that Amanda is one of my best friends and it was such an honor to be a part of her day!
Amanda & John wed at Chief Hosa Lodge in Denver, CO.
The venue was gorgeous & rustic. I loved the rock walls inside. It made it very romantic and fairytale-ish. The view was incredible!! I'm used to our north GA mountains, which are beautiful on their own, but they are a subtle beauty compared to the Rockies for sure!
Amanda was simply exquisite in her dress. The wedding color was a beautiful deep blue and she and all the wedding party wore adorable sporting matching blue Converse shoes.
She did a first look with John & he was all smiles when he saw his beautiful bride. When you watch them embrace you can just feel the love between them and seeing my best friend have that on her wedding day was priceless.
The ceremony was outdoors set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.
It was very moving. I didn't expect any of us to cry but Amanda and I both did, and so did our other besties, Laura and Christy! Surrounded by their children & loved ones, Amanda & John committed their lives to each other. They included a foot washing and completed a family tree with their children. It was emotional and so full of love.
The reception was such a great party! The toasts were so meaningful & heartfelt. Everybody cut a rug and quite a few even did keg stands...including the bride and groom! How fun is that? LOL. It was a true celebration!
Here's to many years of love & happiness for Amanda & John!
