Photographs by Roman
Amanda and Nick met on the third day of college orientation and were best friends during college and after. They didn’t start dating until July of 2016, when he finally got the courage to ask her out! Nick proposed in their living room. He cooked the most delicious stuffed shells, and then was too nervous to eat any of it, so they both drank a ton of wine. He said he wanted her to look at something on the computer, and the next thing she knew- he was proposing.
They wanted their wedding to be at the Antrim 1844 as soon as they saw it! It was the most gorgeous venue they had seen and they loved both the indoor and outdoor options. They both knew immediately that they would get married there.
They would recommend wedding planning early! They were engaged for a year and a half before they got married, and they found most of their wedding vendors and the Antrim 1844 within the first three months! This allowed them to take the rest slowly, and to really enjoy the process.
Amanda says “Going through the entire wedding planning process with my best friend was the best part about all of this. Crossing things off of our checklist was also a great feeling! We would make sure to reward ourselves each time we accomplished something!”
Their inspiration for the wedding came from everywhere! There are so many great resources- from The Knot wedding magazines, even Instagram they were able to put together a vibe that felt like them as a couple.
Amanda says “Our favorite wedding moments definitely included seeing each other for the first time. That first look was so amazing and intimate. Within the hustle and madness of the day, having that special moment for the two of us was everything. When we sat down to dinner and looked around the room at all of our family and friends, it was this surreal moment. Everyone was there to celebrate us and share in our love.”
“Working with Roman was such an incredible experience. He truly took the time to listen to our concerns, from the very beginning to the wedding day. He worked with us and made us feel very at ease. Roman was excellent in capturing all of those wonderful moments of our special day!”
