The Wedding of Amanda and Jonathan by Shine Photos

Military weddings are just extra special to us and the wedding of Amanda and Jonathan fit the bill.  Brides always have the anticipation of a wedding day but the long distant separation from your fiance obviously adds a bit of angst to all of the planning – but it also likely adds a heighten excitement as well.

Amanda (and her mom) made sure that as many of the details of this wedding were taken care of without too much of their oversight so that Amanda could concentrate on making all of her final preparations to move away from Chattanooga to start her new life with her new husband – on a military sight far from home.

She found one of our preferred photographers, Ken Peggram with Shine Photographs, who had also been the photographer of one of her friend’s wedding (here at the farm).  As you see – he does awesome work so that was an easy fit.

Her bridal gown was stunning with all of that vintage style lace, the design, and don’t you just love all of that intricate work down the back?

She wanted a very simple elegance to the wedding decor with accents in pink, specifically antique rose plus that burgandy wine color that has been so popular this year and lace, of course.

Fortunate shined on her with a beautiful day at the farm – lots of sun and pleasant weather.

The full farm was in bloom.

Amanda and her bridesmaids couldn’t help but make gorgeous photos – no matter where they went.

Guest viewed photos of the engaged couple on our distressed door and they left “messages in a bottle” for the newlyweds to read later – oooooh, wonder what messages people left?

Look at the doting father (and maybe he has some angst of his own) walking her down the aisle.

Look at the happy couple now married coming back down the aisle – no anxiousness here!

Cool dudes.

Awesome parents – so easy to work with.

All were happy to see delicious cake and an assortment of donuts – and even a special pie for the groom.

Time for a few romantic shots.

And then he carried her off into the sunset for a “Happily Ever After” send off.
