These two beautiful humans are officially married. Amanda and Ryan planned a stunning spring wedding at the beautiful Aria in Connecticut and truly it was picture perfect. Amanda paid such close attention to detail and that makes my little photographer heart sing. The Aria is floor to ceiling bright and warm, their new chapel is an all white vision so add a gorgeous bride and voila…we have perfection. But this wedding day goes past aesthetic beauty, it reflects to the deep and lasting connection that Amanda and Ryan have.
“Plan A was marrying her a long time ago. Pretty much the day I met her.”
Amanda and Ryan are a stunning couple physically, I mean look at them. Amandas big blue eyes and Ryans George Clooney vibe they could be on a magazine cover! If looks were the only indicator of a successful marriage than these two are aces, but it’s not. Marriage is by definition a covenant that we go back on far too much these days. The beauty of marriage is that it is through the thick and thin, that fun little for better or worse is a HUGE statement and Amanda and Ryan mean it. I can tell by the way Ryan cant take his eyes off of her and how she constantly tucks herself close to him, he’s a safe place for her. It is very obvious that they have found the one whom their soul loves, I teared up many times.
Like any wedding day, there were some stressful moments. But the way Amanda & Ryan related to each other through stressful moments, they were each others home base. They came together and made each other laugh, it was precious to watch. I am witnessing marriages pretty much every weekend and it take a special couple like this to remind me of the beauty of what I am capturing. The beauty of spring backdropping the Aria and my utterly perfect couple have made this wedding one to remember. I am thankful that I had the honor of being there for it, congratulations lovebirds!
The ceremonies at the Aria in Connecticut are absolutely gorgeous.Their all new all white chapel is a beautiful neutral backdrop for a classy wedding ceremony. Amanda acme down the isle to a stunning rendition of a star wars song which is apparently a favorite of Ryans. Couples, this is a sweet way to bring in your personalities to your wedding day!
Amanda and Ryan chose to end their wedding day in the sweetest way, they had a private last dance. This was a beautiful way to end their day.
