Country Gardens Wedding – Amanda & Brenden

The first time I met Amanda and Brenden in person, they were dressed as Wednesday Adams and Uncle Fester at our mutual friend’s Halloween party.  They absolutely rocked those costumes and immediately I knew we would get along.

Amanda and Brenden were married at Country Gardens in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. Can I just tell you how absolutely gorgeous it is there? They have several gardens on site, and a bed and breakfast in the back along with a greenhouse that is kept up year round. When I first arrived to their venue on their wedding day, not two minutes later Brenden arrived as well. He greeted me with a hug and a smile, and while he seemed slightly nervous, he was calm, cool, and collected. If I had to describe Amanda and Brenden using three words, they would be kind, warm, and loving.

Check out some photographs from their wedding day and I know you will see what I mean!

  Brenden’s face upon seeing Amanda walk into their secret garden was one of pure and ecstatic joy!

 While we were doing their portraits, Amanda turned to Brenden and said “I don’t care how long the pictures take. Our kids are going to be looking at these!” Which of course, made my heart soar- as I am a big softie for documenting EVERYTHING

  Amanda said she felt like running in her wedding dress. I said “Go for it!”

At Country Gardens they have a tradition for every wedding or event that they host. They like to get all the guests together for a big group photo. Amanda told me that when she was considering the venue and looking through the group photos from events past, she couldn’t help but picture the smiling faces of the guests looking up at a giant. With this in mind, the bride requested a special group photograph…

Later in the evening when I was at home loading all the images from their day onto my computer, I couldn’t help but crack up laughing as I looked at their giant photo. I even called my husband over to see. This turned out too good, Amanda!

 Brenden and his best man have been friends since they were children. They were avid campers together throughout New England. Fun fact; Brendan became a vegan 3 months after getting together with Amanda, who is also vegan. The two of them have two rescues pups at home

  Amanda is a nanny, and she is a natural with children. Her maid of honor was telling everyone about Amanda getting some teenagers to open up through dancing- which Amanda did enough of on her wedding day!

Thank you SO much for having me there to capture your gorgeous day, Amanda and Brenden. You and your families are so sweet and a joy to be around, which of course made my job that much easier! I wish you all the best in what is sure to be a beautiful and loving marriage.
