Amanda and Corey

I could smell the sunshine when this beautiful yellow wedding landed in my inbox – yellow is such an amazing colour and the joyfulness is infectious throughout Amanda and Corey’s Austin wedding day.

High school sweethearts, Amanda and Corey have been together for many years, Amanda explains “We met in high school – he used to pretend to forget his glasses in another class so he could sit in the front of the room, next to me. We started dating about a year later, and we’ve been inseparable ever since! He’s an absolutely amazing husband, and I can’t imagine my life without him!”

Corey wore yellow Converse sneakers for the day while Amanda wore yellow J.Crew heels (which she swapped for matching yellow converse sneakers on the dance floor). Amanda wore a gown from David’s Bridal and her bridesmaids wore yellow gowns by Dessy.

The couple married at Vintage Villas in Austin, Texas. Amanda walked down the aisle to Vitamin String Quartet’s cover of Dashboard Confessional’s “Hands Down.”

Amanda’s brother in law officiated the ceremony. Amanda remarks “My husband and I worked with my brother in law to write our ceremony ourselves, and my brother in law was the one to officiate our wedding. It was incredibly special to have someone so close to us be the one to marry us, and we’re so glad that we took the time to hand craft our ceremony so that it was personal, unique, and completely tailored to us!”

One of Amanda’s favourite moments was her husband’s words. “I loved having my husband pull me aside and tell me how proud he was of all the work I put into planning the day and creating all of the decorations was one of the best moments of the night. I poured my heart into planning and crafting our wedding day, and it was amazing to have him recognize that.” Amanda handmade cloth napkins for every guest to use during dinner.

For their first dance, Amanda says “We danced to “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson. We had originally planned on coming up with a fancy, choreographed dance to wow our guests, but in the end we just held each other and swayed back and forth – and it was absolutely perfect!”

The photo booth was a hit, Amanda remarks “Our photo booth ended up being much more important and special to me than I had anticipated it would – it was so much fun to pull some of our guests aside to take photos with them, and looking back on all of the photos we have of our family and friends enjoying themselves in it makes me smile every time!”

      Colleen – the socks are from Express! They take them out of stock every once in a while, but they always end up coming back!!
