Real Wedding Wednesday: Amaris and Sam

Today I have a wedding to share with y’all that is fit for royalty!

Looking like a queen, Amaris started her day with a first look with her father.

Such a sweet moment.

Then she had a first look with her hubby to be, Sam.

…Where they exchanged handwritten love letters.

The pair had actually written love letters to one another throughout their relationship, but these were extra special.

The ceremony took place inside the gorgeous Wren Chapel on the William and Mary Campus which was closeby to where Amaris and Sam first met.

With a kiss, they were pronounced husband and wife!

Side note: If you are getting married, make sure this photo is on your list for your photographer! I love the kiss from this angle because it shows the crowd of loved ones instead of just the couple and the officiant.

And her ring is ?!

The reception took place indoors and was absolutely stunning.

Look at this spread…

… and this cake! To say I love everything from this wedding is an understatement!

Congratulations Sam and Amaris!
