This past Saturday was glorious in a million ways. Not only was Amanda and Mike a super sweet and easy going (and totally gorgeous) bride and groom, their families were warm and welcoming and the day was relaxed and joy filled. The "iffy" weather forecast ended up surprising us all at just the perfect moments with unexpected beauty. The sun peeked out right in the middle of the post ceremony bride and groom portraits and just in time to shine some sparkly light in everyone's happy eyes. And during the 20 mins of the day when it did so happen to rain cats and dogs, what did we do but sit the groom and his groomsmen down at the lovely little hotel bar to capture some of my favorite unexpected photos of the day. Thank the dear Lord for these little, unexpected, delightful gifts on a day were all that really mattered at the end of it all was that two sweet hearts became one.
