Amanda + Mike - Wedding
This New England wedding was one for the books! Introducing Mike and Amanda Guerriero— the newlyweds whose love was abundant, who joined two amazing families, and who hosted one heck of a party!
Amanda’s family, The Resch’s, have been family friends of mine (Megan) for over fifteen years; our families became close friends when we were living in Connecticut and these friendships lasted through many moves, miles, and milestones! They’ve been there for our family in more ways than I can count, so when they approached us to capture this big day we were honored to be a part of it!
The entire weekend was filled with celebration and excitement. We arrived that Friday ready to join in on the celebration, and were still blown away by how much of a family affair it was. From the Rehearsal dinner on Friday to the Wedding Ceremony and Reception on Saturday to the Post Wedding Brunch on Sunday we were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and joy that came from both sides of their families and friends. This was a group that was truly rejoicing with the bride and groom, who was there to honor and uplift them, and who knew the value of family and legacy. And did we mention they know how to have a good time?
We could’ve stopped photographing the reception after the first song, because that’s how many photos we already had. The dance floor was packed. The crowd was excited. The band was incredible. And there, in the middle of all the fun, was a couple that was soaking up every moment of the day that had been planned for and anticipated for so long… and there they were, husband and wife!
We’ll have to end this somewhere, but what I want to point out is that amongst the beautiful Golf Club location on the rolling hills of New Jersey, the wild wedding party who chased after golf carts and rallied a ridiculous party, and the joyful atmosphere of toasts and dancing and a band that was nothing short of incredible, perhaps our favorite moments were the quiet ones among Mike and Amanda. Where the silence spoke for itself, and the photos simply documented the overwhelming emotion of a groom who deeply loves his bride, and a bride who focused so well on her groom that when they caught their first glimpse of one another they were overcome with gratitude, excitement, and a peace that comes with the comfort of a joining you know is purposed and true. Mike and Amanda, Congratulations!! We hope this glimpse into your Wedding Photos helps you relive a day we know will be one of your very best!
