On May 2nd 2015 one of my good friends got married to her best friend. Amanda and Shannon have to be one of the cutest couples I've ever had the opportunity to photograph. The chemistry between them is undeniable and I'm lucky to have been apart of their special day!

Everything from the dress to the rings was beautiful. The church was amazing and you could really see all the planning that went into the ceremony and reception. With over 250 guests everything went off without a hitch.

Amanda's make up artist did an AMAZING job of making her look her absolute best on her big day. If I could pick only one word to describe the bride: flawless. When going through the photo's I hardly had to edit anything. She was all natural beauty all on her own.

The most memorable part of the day was when they kissed and the expressions Amanda and Shannon had as they walked down the isle as the new Mr. & Mrs. Sheets! The pure joy of becoming newlyweds and starting their journey together was easily seen in the ear to ear smiles each of them had.
At the reception is where the fun REALLY began. The airy openness of the Mohican Outdoor School with it's vaulted ceilings and wood accents really brought together the woodsy/nature theme of this outdoorsy couple which fit them to a T. Their first dance is something they both will remember for the rest of their lives.
A particularly special moment I was able to capture was that of Amanda and her Dad during their first dance. At first they were all smiles as he hugged her to congratulate her. And as the song was winding down, I noticed a single tear running down his cheek and the smile that crossed his face was something I'll never forget.
Later in the evening the partying really began. It went from good ol' fashioned wedding reception fun, to funky put your dancin' shoes on time! The DJ worked his magic with his lights and the music was phenomenal. It ranged from oldies, country to current pop hits. I felt like I was singing along the entire night!

All in all, it was a beautiful wedding and reception. I wish this happy couple the best on their new journey together as husband and wife.
