With an April 2020 wedding planned, Amy and Andrew had some big wedding decisions to make. There was a strict 10 person, mask enforced, thoroughly sanitized regulation on any group gathering. Everything was so unexpected and unpredictable that making future plans was almost impossible.
Amy and Andrew chose to get married in an intimate, family-only ceremony at St John the Baptist Church in Madison. We were able to capture some beautiful details and really precious moments that morning as they got ready. One thing that really stood out to me that day was the joy Amy and Andrew shared. Unexpectedly pivoting your plans for a “normal” wedding day into a simple ceremony where only a handful of people were even allowed to be present isn’t easy for anyone. Amy and Andrew made the best of it and filled the day with wonderful memories!
Exactly 1 year (minus a day) later, Amy and Andrew celebrated their marriage with a full reception for family and friends at the Huntsville Museum of Art! Complete with food, cake, dancing, hugs, and hand sanitizer. It may have been delayed by 12 months, but it was a perfect way to bring their celebration full circle!
Speaking of celebration, you might notice something so special! Amy and Andrew are looking forward to welcoming the newest addition to their family next month. All my admiration goes to Amy for planning and attending a wedding reception while 8 months pregnant! She’s a rockstar.
The splashes of vibrant color! Amy and Andrew’s original wedding colors were blush, white, and greenery. It made for an elegant ceremony. I love that Amy decided to bring on the color for their reception! I also have to give a shout-out to Aisha for that gorgeous cake of hers! I can’t get over both the marble effect and the ruffles. I’m sure a guest or two saw me swooning over that cake during the course of the evening.
Speaking of swooning, Joel had a surprise when one of the guests tipped him off that a cousin was going to be proposing to his girlfriend later that evening. With such beautiful weather, guests mingled around Big Spring Park before sunset. As I covered the party inside, Joel popped outside to take advantage of the gorgeous golden light for guest portraits. It was the perfect setup for a sneaky proposal in an out-of-the-way spot. An heirloom ring and one excited newly engaged fiancé later, there was a lot of celebrating to be had.
Seeing our J&A Couples at weddings is an absolute joy to us, and we had TWO J&A Couples at this wedding! We had a chance to catch up with both Christina & Eric and Liza & Brit, plus their little guys! What a treat!!
There’s so much I could say about this unique, amazing, and emotional journey that started with an unexpected pandemic twist, but I’ll let you check out a few of the special moments for yourself.
Amy & Andrew – Wow! What a journey it’s been for you guys! We’re so thrilled to see everything come together with a beautiful celebration of your love. We’re so happy to see you guys grow together, and we’re rejoicing in your sweet little addition coming soon! You made it, and you’re about to embark on the best adventure yet. Congrats, guys!
