Amanda, you're SO beautiful!
John Mavris, Amanda's friend/boss… officiated the ceremony.
I LOOOOOOVE that arch! If I were planning another wedding for Mike and I… ours would look exactly like that.
We loved everything about this setting.
Bobbi's favorite ❗
Mikey's favorite ❓
DANVILLE, Ind. These two got married on a Monday… A MONDAY?!?!?! When she inquired… I had to confirm that we had the dates right… and yes yes yes, a Monday it was 😀 Why a Monday you ask… Jonathan, as I already mentioned, is United States Marine… his leave (AKA, vacation time) started that Sunday… and ended at the end of the week… so they could spend the maximum amount of time together before he had to head back to California… they did it as early in the week as possible. Isn't that a cool wedding story? 😀
Their ceremony was perfect in every way. It was a small, intimate, personalized affair… and it was exactly what Amanda envisioned. When she first contacted us about photographing their wedding… she began to explain that she wanted a wedding in the woods… AHHHH WE LOOOOOVED ITTTTT!!!!!!
Amanda is actually the wedding coordinator of Mavris Arts and Event Center in downtown Indianapolis… Mavris is one of our favorite places to work, so we were honored and OH SO excited when she called. We've worked with Amanda on numerous occasions… and she always takes such good care of us. This time… it was our turn to take care of HER! 😀 OHHHH how we loved seeing her as a bride 🙂
Jonathan is such an awesome guy with a huge smile and an even bigger heart. They both wrote their own vows and I remember specifically him saying that he had big plans for his future… and all of those big plans included Amanda and Layla. I'm giving it NO justice… but I assure you, it was so incredibly sweet. I believe he, along with his best man Jordan are Afghanistan right now… or heading over very shortly… so Mike told me to give a big "OORAH" to them!
Amanda and Jonathan… we cannot thank you guys enough for allowing us to share and capture such an awesome day.

And, as always… one of my favorite parts of the day. 😀
Yes, I'm aware that my camera is on upside down… I was in a hurry and just threw it on.
