This is my very first wedding of the 2017 season!  Sure, it may have rained all day, but honestly ... the number one priority of a wedding day is seeing the bride + groom marry, rain or shine.  Joe + Amanda had a beautiful day, despite the rain.  

I should make note that Amanda's dad wins the "father of the bride" award (that's a thing, right?) for ordering 20 umbrellas for the bridal party so we could still sneak in a few outdoor portraits! He had them shipped overnight when he saw the forecast for May 13th.  We had a great day though, like I said - the rain just adds some character to their wedding day:)

The venue, the food, the details in purple hue, the bridal party, the seriously talented//amazing band, the guests who came in from all over the place made Amanda + Joe's day beautiful and perfect.  And cake. Cake always help make the world go 'round. 

Cheers to Amanda + Joe!  To a lifetime of happiness, health, and love.  Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your big day. Thank you for standing outside with an umbrella in the rain for some shots and thank you for finding one another to bring us all together to celebrate your big day in such a big, memorable way :)
