Horton Farms Wedding Story of Amanda and Ryan: Ceremony

Hey everybody!
I don't know if this is normal for wedding photographers, but my relationship with my clients goes so deep - I truly feel like we're friends when the wedding day finally comes around.  I think this is the reason why I still get emotional at weddings, and I still get overjoyed when I witness sweet moments for the bride. 
Today's wedding post has some of those really sweet moments from Amanda's wedding at Horton Farms in Arkansas.

This first one seriously melts my heart. This is Amanda's 93-year-old great-grandmother.  Isn't she a doll?! This is when Amanda first arrived at her bridal luncheon at Jackson House in Bentonville.  What a sweet moment!

Lauren captured an amazing first look shot - great job Lauren!  Looks like a friggin' painting! Oooh, maybe they should have it painted!

After their first meeting, they exchanged gifts.  See how Amanda is laughing?  Well, she did this ALL day!  She is so happy and bubbly - I love brides like that!  No, I love PEOPLE like that!

I know I don't have to say it... but... more laughing!  I love when couples laugh during the ceremony - it is, after all, a happy and fun time!

They're also emotional and super sweet! Tears were shed!

Sometimes I don't know if I'd rather have a wide shot or close shot of the first kiss, so I get both!  In the wide shot, you get to see the reactions of friends and family, but the close shot is focused on the newly married couple. :)
