Amanda and Cade were the very first wedding held at the majestic Farmhouse in Montgomery, Texas and we were honored to be a part of their big day. I think there’s something to say when a couple says yes to being the very first wedding. A lot of faith is involved. They have to trust in many unknowns and circumstances that are just out of their control. From a venue’s standpoint, there are always nerves. You put your blood, sweat, and tears into a very big dream and to have someone trust you with the most important day of their lives, well, let’s just say there’s a little bit of pressure.
In my career, I’ve handled five venues’ first weddings and I have to say The Farmhouse was the most prepared. Everything flowed seamlessly as if they’d already been in business for months. Both The Farmhouse and Amanda and Cade had loads of faith and hard work, and at the end of the day it all paid off!
I loved getting to know Amanda and Cade as a couple. It was clear that they valued having Christ be a part of their relationship. Not only that but they surrounded themselves by like minded family and friends. Y’all, marriage is beautiful but it’s also hard so having a true support system that has the same values and beliefs as you is so important.
I know last week I said my favorite part of a wedding day is usually the first look between the bride and groom and the private last dance but for Amanda and Cade’s wedding my favorite part was when their friends prayed over them. I still get chills just thinking about it. I went upstairs to the bridal suite to check in on the ladies and when I opened the door there wasn’t just one bridesmaid leading everyone in prayer but every single woman in that room had their hand on Amanda and were reciting scripture and specific prayers over her. I stood there in awe. It was so moving. This will easily be one of those memories of my career that I hold dear.
Now onto the pretty! Amanda’s style was very organic and free spirited. I loved that she kept things simple with floral and decor. Yellow Thistle knocked the floral out of the park. Bridesmaids carried bouquets of greenery with flowing white ribbon while Amanda’s was greenery as well with perfect pops of purple blooms. Amanda is also a talented artist and made all of the beautiful calligraphed signage and watercolor prints throughout the venue.
Amanda + Cade, I hope your marriage continues to stay grounded in your faith and you always put your relationship with the Lord first. I have no doubt the two of you will have many years of laughter together.
