Amanda and Stephen have been together a long time and after years of being together finally threw the bash they had always wanted. As it turned out, the weather was terrible with insane winds on their wedding day so we couldn’t do our outdoor portraits, but we made the best of it, and instead went to their fave dive bar to put some tunes on the jukebox, take shots on the bar and pop champagne bottles out front.
The groom has a big Irish family with one brother and 4 sisters and they love to party! It was a great time.
I can’t leave you without sharing another unforgettable memory on the dance floor: the band was performing “Take It Easy” (the groom’s mothers favorite song), and everyone joined the dance floor hugging, singing, laughing and crying.
Enjoy some of my favorites moments from the day below!
