Here is a sneak peek at James and Amanda’s wedding at Sandia Resort and Casino. We have had several weddings this year at Sandia, and they always do a wonderful job of making each event unique to that couple. The ceremony took place outside under the pergola, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Amanda had a two bedroom suite, and we loved how spacious and beautiful it was. The suite gave all of the ladies room to spread out while getting ready. It was such a beautiful room, with a killer view!
James wore his Air Force dress blues, and his groomsmen wore a soft grey. The ladies were all in a customizable wrap dress in a mauve color. Each bouquet was the mauve and purple colors. Amanda’s bridesmaids each had their hair and makeup professionally done, and they came out stunning! Amanda chose two different dresses, one for the ceremony (a fitted top ballgown) and a second form fitted, beaded gown with cutouts. Hey shoes were adorable (two pair), a pair of glittery Kate Spade tennis shoes, and an equally glittery pair of heels.
The ceremony was thoughtful throughout. James and Amanda exchanged vows they had written for each other, complete with each one’s accounting of how they first met. Luminance Films was on site to film the entire day, and we enjoyed working with them very much! Amanda’s adorable son was the ring bearer. Such a heartfelt touch!
After the ceremony, the guests were invited inside to a spacious ballroom for dinner (prime rib), dancing (Dream Factory Productions), and cake by ABC Cakes. All of the traditional dances were done, and the guests were treated to a photo booth also! We loved being a part of this beautiful day, and we wish James and Amanda all of the love in the world!
