For Amanda & Gil's blog post I wanted to try something a little different. Their garden wedding had so many gorgeous greens and Whitehall has lots of lovely colorful wallpaper as well...but every time I went through the images the black & white versions were what stood out to me. I've always wanted to share a wedding in just black & white, so today I'm taking the leap! Please keep in mind I delivered both color & black and white images to them, you can see some of the color versions on Instagram, but I'm excited to share the monochrome versions with you all here!
Amanda & Gil had been in a long distance relationship for a couple of years while Amanda worked in Iowa and Gil worked in Louisville. Now they are happily settled in Texas. Their wedding was a celebration of their new marriage of course, but it also felt like a celebration of finally getting to live together. I really enjoyed documenting each of them interacting with their parents and their side of the wedding party before the ceremony— you could tell how much everyone in their lives cares for them. Giving them the space to have some time together alone in the gardens after the ceremony allowed for some really sweet and intimate images as well. They used Amanda's grandmother's cake stand and the knife her parents used at their own wedding. I really loved getting to stay all the way until the end of the night when they left Whitehall in their getaway car with all their friends and family waving on the front porch. I feel like the images really speak for themselves, so that's all I'll share!
