It seems like ‘fate’ has been coming up a lot lately, and that is exactly how I would describe Amanda and Ray! They have been friends for years and after falling apart for a while and leading separate lives, they were destined to come back together. I instantly connected with their relationship because that is how my husband and I’s story goes! It was very clear that Amanda and Ray have something special, and everyone there felt it!
Ray and Amanda’s wedding day was full of nothing but sweet moments. From Amanda’s mom handing out embroidered handkerchiefs, to Ray enjoying a dance with his grandmother, it seemed like I was tearing up at every corner. What I loved most about Ray and Amanda’s wedding day was who they chose to spend it with. Because they had an intimate backyard wedding, every guest that came meant so much to the two of them. It was obvious when they wanted a picture with everyone, which of course I loved! Every detail was thought out and their cousins home in Severn, Maryland was made for hosting. Amanda was very close with her grandfather who had passed, and made sure to add lots of details that included him. She had a sweet moment while getting ready in one of his button-up shirts and even I was needing a handkerchief!
I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their burgundy and navy backyard wedding!
