Amanda & Bryan - July 24, 2010

What's better than a delicious brunch with family and friends? Why, a morning wedding followed by a brunch reception! That is exactly what Amanda and Bryan, who currently live in North Carolina, wanted as they were back home to celebrate their wedding with friends and family. The pair who were introduced by their grandma's knew they had to make the day special!

Here is a sneak peak of their wedding day courtesy of Beautiful Endings Photography.

The early morning began before sunset as Amanda got ready on the Everett Waterfront at The Inn at Port Gardner. As the early morning sun was beaming in the background, Amanda and Bryan exchanged their vows at Harborview Park. Bryan's Grandpa officiated the intimate ceremony. After the ceremony, guests made their way to Floral Hall for a celebration to be remembered. Guests were greeted with bloody marys and mimosas then were asked to type a message to the newlyweds on the typewriter. The kids were entertained with an I Spy game during cocktail hour. Once Amanda & Bryan were announced the real party began, with the gourmet crepes dished by Simply Seasoned Catering to the live music from Swing Set, no one would know that it was only noon! The reception ended with the cutting of a special homemade pie from Amanda's Grandma. With toes still taping and a full stomach, guests headed out to spend the sunny afternoon at the home of Bryan's grandparents who lived on a nearby lake!

I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos taken by Beautiful Endings Photography as Amanda made sure to put her personal touch on all of the decor! Stay tuned!
