Wedding on May 22nd, 2010 at French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana – (Post by Cathy) We have been so impatiently waiting for this day! We have known Amanda for a while now, ever since she accompanied her friend Summer to a meeting with us over coffee. Summer soon booked us for her and Ryan’s Huntingburg wedding, as did Amanda’s friends Meredith (who sung during the ceremony! YAH!) and Ulises. And then it was Amanda’s turn to be engaged and of course she called us up as soon as the ring was on her finger. 🙂 Amanda and Roger’s Lake Geneva engagement session ended up being one of our favorites of all time (gorgeous couple + sweet location + the best post-session pizza on the planet!).
So when Amanda and Roger’s wedding day finally arrived, we were almost as excited as they were. Amanda’s girls (who were all stunningly beautiful!) were by her side all day and kept her calm and laughing until it was finally time for the ceremony. Before stepping through the church doors to walk down the aisle, Amanda stood outside with her girls concentrating on breathing and holding back her tears. Her dad, who had yet to see Amanda in her dress, stepped outside to join her. He literally could not contain the emotions that hit him when he saw his only daughter looking so beautiful in the most important dress of her life. Standing outside those church doors watching Amanda’s dad admiring his daughter and wiping away tears was probably one of the most emotional moments I’ve witnessed at a wedding. And that was just the beginning. From their vows to their speeches at the reception to their very first dance, everything about this day was full of genuine emotion and love.
Amanda and Roger – We had an awesome day with you two. Thank you SO much for letting us be a part of it. It was an honor to capture your first moments as husband and wife and we had such a blast hanging out with your friends and family! Hope you’re having an amazing honeymoon and we love you both!!!

David didn’t notice the little message on the top-left when he took this. 🙂
Stacey Mayo and her team did an AMAZING job (as usual!!!) on Amanda and the bridesmaid’s makeup. She’s our fav. 🙂
Amanda’s church was simply stunning to say the least.
David and the guys went up in the old bell tower to get these (both with natural light!). Apparently it was a bit rickety and steep because David came back down covered in a nervous sweat. 😀
Normally David is the one that gets choked up at weddings. This time though, Amanda and her dad really got me going. 🙂
Thumbs up! 😀
David was almost in tears laughing when he took this. The guys didn’t have a clue why till after he took it. 🙂
Every so often we shoot at a reception location that goes above and beyond expectations. French Lick Springs Resort was impeccable. The service was incredible, and the staff was super-friendly. We could shoot at this location for every wedding and love every minute of it. Honestly if you’re thinking of having your wedding here you’ll have nothing to worry about! David’ pet peeve is that most places don’t iron the table cloths. See any wrinkles on the left? NOPE!
Amanda and Roger gave an incredibly heartfelt thank you to their guests before they did their first dance. It was so sweet and a very tearful moment. 🙂
Amanda and Roger hired a band from Atlanta who did an awesome job!
We loved the bridal party at this wedding. 😀
Me, Summer, Amanda, Meredith and David. We’re all crouched, except Meredith. 😀 Hehe.
