Oh my goodness. Today was Amanda and Matt’s wedding day, and it was full of family, full of love, full of sweetness, and full of joy. This precious couple had their lovely ceremony and reception at historic Macon Presbyterian Church, the home church of the groom’s family. As the bride and groom arrived, morning light poured through the intricately leaded windows – windows that Matt’s grandfather created many years ago. I loved how the window panes became prisms and turned the light into shimmering rainbows.Amanda had roses, roses, roses everywhere. This CAKE, y’all. Every layer was a different flavor! It was GORGEOUS! Amanda gave a nod to her Norwegian family heritage by including a Soljie wedding crown at her cake table.Matt and Amanda chose to wait to see each other for the first time at the ceremony, and I LOVED Matt’s expression when he saw his beautiful bride. I think he stopped breathing for a moment…Two sweet nephews had the honor (and joy) of ringing the bells to announced the new Mr. and Mrs. Matt McCann!We loved how Matt and his dad and brothers have a tradition of taking a ring picture at each wedding. Now every McCann man is taken!The reception decor was gorgeous. Did I mention there were roses EVERYWHERE?Amanda had an AWESOME surprise for her sweet pilot husband – she had made arrangements for a flyover of warbirds during the reception! They flew over the church not once, not twice, but three times! It gave me chills!At the end of the reception, Amanda and Matt made their departure under showers of sweet scented rose petals. But their day wasn’t quite over yet – their next stop was the Macon Municipal Airport for some fun and unique bride and groom portraits!I have no words for how much Jon and I loved shooting these special photos for Amanda and Matt. A gorgeous, happy newlywed couple, a beautiful big sunny May sky, and PLANES. I mean, what a way to put a smile on a photographer’s face! It was SO. MUCH. FUN.Amanda and Matt, you two blessed our socks off today. We enjoyed every moment of your beautiful wedding day (and every bite of that amazing cake!) Thank you so much for the opportunity to witness the beginning of your adventures as Mr. and Mrs. McCann!
