Brad ♥ Amber | Woodland Park Vineyard Wedding

Happy Hump Day Friends! We have been dying to share this wedding with you all. You will quickly notice all the amazing details of this couple’s special day {feel free to pin away!}. But Brad & Amber clearly were the ones who made the day so memorable. This is one of our weddings where we simply have to let the photos speak for themselves. :)

We met at her parent’s house where she and her bridesmaid’s were getting all dolled up. I love it when the girls do it right with treats and comfy getting-ready shirts.

We woke up on the morning of Brad and Amber’s wedding and took a look out our window and saw storm clouds looming. Rain drops started to pitter-patter and I decided to call Amber to see if she had a “Plan B” since it was an outdoor wedding. She affirmatively declared “no” and that she was getting married in the woods rain or shine. Amber, you rock!

Amber picked out special necklaces and handkerchiefs as gifts for the ladies. And I can’t get over these groomsmen outfits! The boys brought their own pants, shirts, and cool suspenders but the adorable bow ties were picked up from Etsy along with the festive vests.

Amber has a daughter and Brad has a son, junior bridesmaid and groomsman respectively. How perfect is that?! They were the cutest kids ever and a pleasure to work with! Amber gifted Emma a bracelet and powder mirror and Brad gifted “Medium Brad” an engraved pocket watch. How sweet! ♥

Amber, if there was an award for amazing brides you would have gotten the gold! The rain let up at the very last minute and we took photos while water droplets fell from the tree. There are very few brides like Amber who could keep their genuine smile while wearing a Vera Wang gown from David’s Bridal in the damp woods. She looked amazing in that gown and I actually wanted to even try it on! LOL Oh I love Vera Wang! And big bows! ♥

I always think that a first glance is a sweet addition to the wedding day and Amber added her own flare by reading Brad a heartfelt letter before letting him see her. So touching and it was hard not to get teary-eyed while watching them.

I love it when the bride lets the bridesmaids buy their own dresses! These dresses were all from ModCloth and they look fun and stylish!

Brad and Amber were definitely meant to be together! Guests arrived in the woods at Woodland Park Vineyards hoping that the canopy of trees would ward off the rain and were surprised to find the sun gloriously glowing through as if from heaven! I don’t know what would be a clearer sign of their true love! And I thought it was pretty neat to see a sign language interpreter at the ceremony and reception. Amber is also an interpreter and had many deaf friends attend.

I’ve seen unique unity ceremonies but this was the first wedding where I’ve seen one involving the rings. Before the exchange of the rings, they were passed among the immediate family where blessings were bestowed upon them. I’m sure that Brad and Amber can feel their families love through their rings to this day.

I love Brad and Amber’s lovely classic white cake but I was even more amazed by their cake table exploding with cake balls and cupakes. I asked which talented baker supplied all these goodies and I found out that her sister made the cake balls and family friends made the cupcakes! I was blown away! So to all you future brides, check with your family and friends to see if you have closet bakers in your midst. :)

Some of these fabulous vintage details were provided and styled by our friend Allison at Our Vintage Love who also was a big help during Brad and Amber’s fun orchard engagement shoot. So if you need to rent anything fun and vintage or get your event styled, make sure to hit her up.

Yeah, that is Brad’s best friend, not the Mr. or Mrs. for sure! LOL We went to bed the night of Amber’s wedding with vision’s of penants and cupcakes and baby’s breath dancing in our heads but I didn’t actually realize how many fantastic details Amber planned for her wedding until putting together this blog!

Congrats Brad and Amber! We’re so glad that we were able to take your engagement photos and celebrate your wedding with you. It was wonderful meeting you and your families. Make sure to stop by their Event Page and check out the slideshow for more photos. Enjoy the rest of your week!
