Amanda & Bennett were facing each other, saying their vows in front of their closest friends and family. Amanda was fighting back tears as she expressed how much she loved Bennett along with her commitments to him. While looking lovingly at her, Bennett reached for her and grabbed her hand! Somehow this moment summed up this amazing day! But first, let’s back up and start at the beginning!
April 1st arrived and with it, a massive snow storm! Downtown Faribault looked incredible as everything was covered in beautiful white snow! We all arrived at The 3 Ten Event Venue and preparations began! Amanda went upstairs to get her hair and makeup done by in the bridal suite by Laura Jones while Bennett started getting ready in the grooms quarters! While I was doing details and flat-lays, Marah from Marah Cole Designs dropped off the florals and they were stunning (as always!)! Check out how fresh and beautiful her bouquet looked! Then, it was time for final getting ready photos! Amanda’s sister Stephanie (a past EVP bride!) helped her into her incredible dress from The Wedding Shoppe! Then, Bennett put on his dapper suit from Bill’s Toggery! These two were looking amazing!
They shared their first look over by the large windows at the venue and they were so happy to finally see one another all dressed up! We then went outside for some photos downtown and then came back in for some photos inside as well! The wedding party joined and we had a blast taking photos! We then took family photos and captured so many meaningful moments! It was then time for guests to arrive!
Guests arrived ready to celebrate! Amanda & Bennett’s indoor ceremony was filled with hugs, love, and as I mentioned at the beginning, hand holding! So happy for these two as they are now husband and wife! After the ceremony ended, guests enjoyed a social hour before reception seating began. Dinner was catered by Classic Catering and was very delicious! Once every was eating, the matron of honor shared special moments and words for the bride (her little sister!), and the woman of honor shared special memories of Bennett! Then it was time for first dances! Loved every moment of this day and so happy to have been there! Over the last few years, this whole family has become very special to me! So honored to have been there for Amanda & Bennett’s wedding day!
