I love the stunning view surrounding the ceremony site in today’s feature wedding! Captured by Michelle Girard Photography, Amanda and Dan were married on a gorgeous August day at the Log Cabin in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Amanda’s sister and wedding planner, Trista, did a wonderful job coordinating all the details of the day. Trista also surprised Amanda with her “something blue” once Amanda was in her gown; a very special moment! Dan and his groomsmen had some pre-ceremony fun on the basketball court once they were dressed. I love the purple accents and Amanda’s black bridal sash!
A few words from the bride:
Dan and I met in college on August 6, 2006 and we were inseperable since the first day we met. Dan proposed on Valentine’s Day in 2011– it was our first Valentine’s Day in our new house. He had saved a bottle of wine from a recent trip to Italy and on a heart-shaped red velvet cake had personalized M&Ms that said, “Will you marry me?”.
After the engagement, I contacted my sister who just happened to be a wedding planner (lucky me!) and she was able to coordinate the entire wedding with amazing vendors. She also gifted me my VERY special “something blue”!! Because of a trip to the Bahamas a month prior to our wedding, we didn’t have any honeymoon plans; however, Dan surprised me with a roadtrip through California, Las vegas, and Arizona– it was the cherry-on-top to the perfect wedding!!
