Desmond Wedding with Amanda & Chris

You may remember Amanda and Chris from their awesome engagement session last year! These two love birds have quite the story. Independently, Amanda and Chris went on a trip to Miami at the same time, while on vacation the met and through talking figured out that they both were from the Capital Region! It wasn’t long until they became smitten with each other and then fell in love. It is so clear how much these two just adore one another. Family is SO important to this couple and they were constantly surrounded by so much love and excitement! We feathered that in with the details and portraits of their most important people! It was such a perfect day for our Desmond Wedding Photography! Amanda absolutely loves vintage everything so all we captured all of her wedding details on her family’s antique heirlooms. The bracelets on the clock are gifts that her parents gave her from when she was little and she wore the proudly on her wedding day.
