Amanda + Joe - All Saints Chapel Wedding | North Carolina and Connecticut Wedding Photographer Lauryn Alisa Photography

It was a gorgeous (and HOT!) summer day here in North Carolina for Amanda and Joe's wedding this past July.  I had been waiting a long time for this day!  Not only did I know it was going to be a gorgeous and fun wedding, but I also had gotten to know and love this couple over the past year, I was so excited to capture their day for them!  Not only is it clear how incredibly in love these two are, but they are also carefree and know how to enjoy the special moments, which was obvious by all the fun that was had on their wedding day!

One of my favorite moments from their wedding was when Joe watched his bride walk down the aisle towards him.  You can clearly see him get choked up, and then smile with tears in his eyes.  It was adorable and a moment I'm sure Amanda will tell their children about one day!

Amanda and Joe's wedding was beautifully put together by an amazing team of vendors as you can see from how beautiful the space looked!  The food was delicious, and of course the party was going all night long!  I don't think there was a single person who didn't hit the dance floor that night.  Oh, and Amanda and her girls rocked out to some Spice Girls, NSYNC, and BSB which just spoke to this 90's girl's heart!  It was such a fun reception filled with tons of laughter and of course even more dancing! The evening ended with a sparkler exit and when it was all over I couldn't help but think how lucky this couple was.  It was the perfect wedding day! <3
