In a cliché boy meets girls eyes from across the room, Amanda and Mark’s romance began.
After a proposal in Vegas at the top of the Eiffel Tower, a secret garden wedding started to flourish and when the day arrived CJ Williams Photography captured the magic.
Here’s some words from Amanda;
‘The theme for the wedding was ‘Secret Garden’ French Shabby Chic Vintage. We wanted hints of beauty that reflected old school charm with a it still remaining to be modern and pretty.
I love interior design and very creative and so is my husband most items around both the venues were handmade poems and signs, we made vintage crates, vintage umbrella’s, vintage hankies for the ladies, and vintage bottles with pink lemonade to quench our guests thirst, guests could leave us a message on our vintage typewriter, and also chose a vintage key to hang on a wooden log with a message of “The secret to Marriage”.’
Amanda and Marks advise for future couples:
‘It is you and your fiancés day and make sure that the day reflects you both and what you believe the value of marriage is. No matter how many people try to get involved and try to push you into things just remember that the only people that need to be happy on the day are you two. In regards to the guest list we invited only those family and friends that we knew would be in our futures and wanted the best for us. Stay true to yourself and each other.’
