When Amanda first messaged us, this is what she said in the “tell us about yourselves” section- “We love our local coffee every morning. Freshly ground and french pressed. To give you a sense of our relationship, Tommy proposed to me with a Milwaukee wide scavenger hunt, ending at our favorite concert hall! (I honestly had no ides and just thought we were going to dinner) We love music, especially if it’s live. We have matching tattoos around our wrists. I designed them using our initials. We each have one with just our own initials, then once we got engaged I took Tom on a scavenger hunt ending at the tattoo parlor to get the one we always promised each other we would get, combining both of our initials =).”
So, obviously Eric and I instantly wanted to meet this couple. They sounded awesome! Then, Amanda went on to describe what they hoped their wedding would look like. It was going to be up north in Wisconsin, at a camp where they love to get away to with friends for a weekend. An outdoor ceremony over looking the little lake, with a reception that would be next to a small vineyard, surrounded by tall pines and a few acres of fields and trails. PLUS, a they hired a local band, (I’m not a Pilot) to play for a bit at the reception and for their first dance, and Tom has a tattoo from the lyrics of one of their songs on his arm. It sounded like it was going to be a fantastic day.

Guess what? It was. It was so fantastic. It was clear how much time and effort Tom & Amanda put into the planning, but also their friends and family were just great. It’s always a treat to attend a wedding and just feel the amount of love radiating towards the couple getting married, and this day was absolutely one of those.
Anyhow, I obviously could go on and on about how great these two are, and how wonderful their wedding was- but I’ll stop myself now and let you see for yourself.
