I was super excited to photograph Amanda & Heath’s wedding when I met Amanda just a few months before. She was telling me all the details she had planned and I knew it would be unique and beautiful. I was right! They wanted an intimate wedding for family and a few friends to share their day with them. They choose the 7 Wheel Ranch in Gainesville, Texas and had the wedding near the gorgeous log cabin there. Amanda’s dad built the benches where the guests sat and added in some personal brands that followed their families history. Every last detail was DIY! Amanda’s mom and aunt made (yes hand-made) her wedding dress with some gorgeous lace they found. For gifts they made heart shaped birdseed biscuits and carried the bird theme to the wooden birds on their cake. Their cake was a family tradition called Viennese Ribbon Cake which was delicious and had colorful layers of cake, jam, and nuts. Amanda’s mom even did the flowers the day of as well and added pieces of left over lace from her dress to the flowers. I love how when they remember their wedding day they will remember the people that helped them make it so special. I could go on and on about all the details but I’ll let you enjoy the photos instead!
