I felt a combination of excitement and disbelief that the day we had been planning for so long was finally here. – Amanda

Besides the plentiful amount of mimosas, just a sense of gratitude for these ladies who stood by me and were a sounding board throughout the wedding journey. – Amanda

At the start of the day I was excited. The big day was finally here. I was marrying my best friend, so there was no nervousness. All smiles and laughs. – Jason

Seeing him standing at the arbor in his tuxedo made me feel a mixture of excitement, gratitude and love. The earlier part of the day was a whirlwind of getting ready and photos, but this was the first moment where it truly felt real. – Amanda

Seeing my bride for the first time was awesome. I was looking at my best friend and the love of my life in a whole new way. – Jason

Yes. I was definitely hesitant about having a first look in the beginning because it was against tradition. But it was wonderful to have that special moment for just the two of us. Plus since the weather did not cooperate for our outdoor ceremony, I am grateful that we were able to take these photos outside because we got the best of both worlds. – Amanda

Our first look gave us that private moment. Seeing her walk down the aisle gave us the chance to share that feeling. – Jason

Jason and my Mom are the two most important people in my life and it was touching to have her place my hand in his. This moment signified Jason becoming a member of my family. – Amanda

We took dance lessons to prepare for our first dance. Right before the dance I remember thinking please don’t trip over my dress and remember the steps. Once the music started I felt comfortable and just let myself go. – Amanda

Remember the steps don’t step on the dress. Remember the steps don’t step on the dress. – Jason

We had previously worked with Ray and Chris during our engagement session. They made us feel comfortable and as a result we looked natural in our photos. This sense of ease we felt working with them carried into our wedding day. Ray took the pre-ceremony photos with my Mom and the bridal party. His photos portrayed both the silly and special moments in the bridal suite. Once we were all together at the winery, Ray and Chris truly made use of the entire winery and grounds to capture our day – Amanda

For our wedding, we were lucky enough to have Ray and Chris. Ray photographed the ladies, while Chris joined us. None of my comrades are really the type that normally like to get their photo taken. The fact that Chris kept it fun the whole time was essential. We felt he was someone on our wavelength and that made a big difference. One other thing that stood out was the sudden idea to do the “super hero landing” pose for a shot. I hadn’t thought of it, but given that I’m a big comic fan, I appreciated it. – Jason
