From August 22, 2015
Peggy and I met Amanda and her mother at two bridal shows in the Fredericksburg area. In between the shows we had not heard from them but during the second they let us know that they intended on using us for the upcoming wedding. It was a funny moment because while they did indeed let us know they thought our work was really nice, it was Peggy who they were really after, lol! They said she just had such a great way about her that they definitely wanted her to be a part of the day. To be honest, that happens pretty often. I've mentioned it before but more often than not Peggy becomes kind of a surrogate part of the bridal party. She is always there to lend a helping hand, help fasten the back of a dress or say just the right thing to help the bride remember how special she is on her wedding day. It's pretty funny actually and pretty cool!
This day was no exception as you can see from the images below where not only did Amanda take a few images for herself during the reception but one of the guests did as well. This time however I was able to participate in the fun including a brief Carlton-esque dance maneuver (not pictured, thank goodness!) and a game of tag with the sweet little one in a few the images you'll see below. She reminded me so much of my nieces as she kept sneaking up on me, tagging me and taking off like her life depended on it, lol!
Probably what stood out the most to me though was the spirit of the day. It was fun, very fun. The guests were fantastic and inited us in to be a part of their hijinx which included the toilet papering of Jeremy's car and the saran wrapping of their toilet! Neither of which I saw coming by any stretch but was duly impressed and entertained by. They were a blast all evening.
Peggy and I haven't come across a group of people celebrating an event that were't all just great people. This evening was no exception to that either and I hope the pattern continues. We left the reception with such a feeling of joy and welcomeness and we wish Amanda and Jeremy the absolute best on their journey together!
