You know what’s interesting? How in six years of documenting weddings I’ve never came across a “normal” family. You know one where all the uncles are well behaved, one where everyone always gets along, one where the kids actually listen. And you know what, I don’t think I ever want to shoot a wedding where the family is “normal”. It would just be boring.
Well Amanda and Kyle definitely have some interesting family dynamics. I don’t think its possible not to when you take a mixture of New Yorker’s, native southerner’s, and throw in some Floridians just for fun. I had a similar mix at my wedding and I can tell you its a lot of fun to watch the people from Brooklyn mingle with people from Pickens.
Amanda and Kyle were married this past weekend at the always beautiful Westin Poinsett in Downtown Greenville. Now I’ve shot a lot of receptions at the Westin, but never a ceremony so I was interested in seeing how it would work. Short Story: Incredible. Thanks to the pretty amazing design team over at Pam Rowland, I don’t think I’ve seen the Gold Ballroom look that good before. Seriously, I could try to describe it with words, but that just wouldn’t do it justice (good thing I’m a photographer!). All the details set a beautiful stage for an emotional day surrounded by some very loving family members. Thanks for having me Amanda and Kyle!
A big thanks to all the Vendors who helped make this day amazing!
