Amanda + Matt Said “I Do!”

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.IMG_5696IMG_6072Amanda had roses, roses, roses everywhere. IMG_5834IMG_9266IMG_5925This 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.IMG_6026-2IMG_5974Matt 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…IMG_9702IMG_9734IMG_9735IMG_9713IMG_9729IMG_6193IMG_6238Two sweet nephews had the honor (and joy) of ringing the bells to announced the new Mr. and Mrs. Matt McCann!IMG_6259IMG_6332IMG_9955IMG_6436We 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!IMG_6388The reception decor was gorgeous. Did I mention there were roses EVERYWHERE?IMG_5936IMG_9521Amanda 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!IMG_6565IMG_0097IMG_6584At 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!IMG_6627IMG_6653IMG_0167IMG_6678I 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.IMG_0358IMG_6714IMG_0211IMG_0325IMG_6768IMG_6753IMG_0392IMG_0408Amanda 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!
