Johnson Wedding / by Kendall Whiteley

AUGUST 25, 2018 | AKA Wedding of the Century

Having been together over 6 years (yes, we said 6 years!), we KNOW that Amanda was eager to begin wedding planning after Justin proposed on their Caribbean cruise! To be honest, WE knew she had been planning since the day SHE knew he was the one (6 years ago) and that meant this wedding was going to be perfection. AND it was! Every single tiny detail was thought of, the color palette was on point, the emotion was truly overwhelming, Amanda was the most effortless classic bride we have ever seen and the FUN we had was irreplaceable. 

As stated above, every. single. detail was thought about + the color palette was on point. The neutrals and earthy tones (seen in the bridesmaids dresses and the greenery+ centerpieces and the stunning creamy drapery) with pops of mild floral print or gold/rose-gold was a perfect way to add a bit of a twist on a more simple palette.  The handwritten vows these two read to each other during their ceremony were heart felt and touching. Not a dry eye in the house. It was like the last 6 years they had literally been waiting to tell each other these words. As if that wasn't enough emotions for us all-Amanda chose to include 4 first looks into her big day; one with her father, one with her brothers, one with her bridesmaids AND one with her hubby-to-be. All were emotional as ever but just look at those bridesmaids reactions! These girls have been with Amanda through thick and thin and they could NOT contain their excitement for their great friend on her most special day.  After all the happy tears, the celebration began! Amanda changed into THE most stunningtwo-piece, cinched waste, flowy reception dress (can you say #receptiondressgoals?!) and started the party! To end the evening, Amanda,  a singer with huge talent surprised everyone when she grabbed the mic during the reception and sung Goodbye Earl by The Dixie Chicks to us all while we danced and cheered her on. It was way too much fun. Witness it for yourself!
