The day of Tim and Amanda's wedding was perfectly clear; there was no sign of a single cloud in the sky! It seemed that everything went just about as planned and that is pretty amazing when you add four kids into the mix:) This day was more than two people becoming one in marriage, it was about two families becoming one. Tim and Amanda's story is one of incredible hope in the midst of heartbreak. It is truly one that makes you marvel in the work of God. I am so happy for this new family and I am blessed to have been apart of this happy day!
It began with a trip to the salon. Amanda has such beautiful hair that was curled and pinned back with her grandmother's hair clip. She looked stunning!
Tim's daughter came with the ladies to get pampered before the day's events began. She was so sweet and had such character for a 5 year old!
I just LOVED her bouquet!
Seeing each other for the first time ended up being short and sweet when the kids came running out after Amanda:)
We took off for a short moment to take advantage of what I like to call true Arizona landscape:) Their house is surrounded by it!
One almost new happy family!
The kids were a hoot if I may say so:) What finally got the littlest guy to look up was a duck in the pond. That was a success--thank you duck!
The Wedding Party. This time the little guy was laughing at my husband and second shooter, he was in the background making funny noises. Whatever works!
We got a few more portraits to have some variety. This park made for a pretty backdrop.
The boys were the ring bearers and they played their part quite nicely.
The sweet little flower girl was all smiles the whole way down the aisle!
And my favorite part of it all, seeing the reaction of the groom when he sees his bride coming down the aisle just for him!
I love this interaction!
It was a sweet moment as the kids joined Tim and Amanda for the sand ceremony which represented the two families becoming one. Each individual had their name on a vase and poured it into the largest vase which said Mace.
Such a beautiful ceremony! Congratulations Mace family!
