Amber+Daniel

Sometimes it takes both families to make a vision for a wedding happen. Luckily for Amber and Daniel, all hands were on deck to make the bride’s dream wedding come true!

But let’s back this story up to before the two families became one, back when Amber and Daniel first met: “Daniel and I met at a friend’s party when we were in high school and reconnected when I came home from the University of South Alabama for Christmas Break 2014.”

This re-connection would obviously lead to greater things, as was evident one year later: “Daniel proposed to me on Christmas Eve 2015, one year to the day we reconnected. He asked me in our new home in front of the Christmas tree. Just us two. It was perfect.”

Now that Amber had the perfect engagement, she needed to complete her perfect vision for her dream wedding: “My vision for our day was bohemian with a country twist, like a Forrest and Jenny wedding but bigger.”

Amber’s family just happens to own Wyatt Barn at the Crossroads, a spot that is both rustic and romantic, but large enough to allow for color, whimsy, and whatever else your imagination can come up with! Once they lined the outdoor aisle with potted chrysanthemums , made an archway by lacing a linen through a tree, and decorated the entryway with bolls of cotton, the ceremony had just the dreamy feel that Amber was looking for.

On October 16th, 2016, Amber was nervous as she got dolled up in her gown from Diane’s Formal Wear and checked her lovely floral arrangements by The Vintage Garden Florists. But that all changed when she and Daniel had their first look:  “My favorite part of the whole wedding was seeing Daniel for the very first time. We did a first look about two hours before the wedding. My stomach was in knots all morning long waiting to see him. Once we saw each other every nerve and every knot that was once there was gone. It was the most perfect moment.”

After the two were married outside, they were joined by all of their friends and family members to the party inside. There awaited them beautiful cakes by Rachel Rachels, a Candy Bar for the kiddos, and barbecue catered by Southern Sweets. Barbecue was a must in order for this wedding to incorporate both sides of the newly joined family: “Daniel’s family used to have a BBQ restaurant years ago and their restaurant signs are still around.  We wanted to incorporate those into the food table and we served delicious BBQ to all or our guests.”

While the guests and wedding party danced away to Deputy 5, Amber and Daniel began spinning into the new dance floor of their lives, with their families joining them along the way.
