Amy & Joe, September 12, 2020, Glen Sanders Mansion
Amy and Joe had a beautiful September Wedding a few weeks back. It was so great to be back at Glen Sanders Mansion and we love the new Bridal and Groom suites on property. Amy and her girls got ready upstairs and when we arrived, she was chilling after just getting her hair finished. She hopped in the makeup chair for some last touch ups and we moved over to the couple’s hotel suite for her to get dressed. Her mom was on hand helping the Bride and after she was dressed, the Bride face timed with her Grandmother in Poland. as she could not be there for the day. Joe and his guys got ready downstairs and Keith headed there to get some last details getting dressed and a celebratory toast with the guys. The couple had a First Look outside of the Mansion and we moved around capturing this gorgeous couple for some formal portraits. The couple were married a few minutes drive at the Church of Saint Adalbert for a beautiful formal ceremony. As the couple exited the church, they were received by family and friends who threw money at them (a Polish Wedding tradition). We then all returned to Glen Sanders Mansion, where we took some Golden Hour pictures with the couple down near the river and then got ready for the big party. Glen Sanders Mansion did a wonderful job making sure all the guests were safely distanced and the tables were adorned with gorgeous rose centerpieces. Even though receptions are looking quite different these days due to regulations, the couple still enjoyed a First Dance, Parent Dances, Bouquet and Garter toss and a cake cutting. We were even able to get outside again for some really lovely night shots near the fire pit. The night ended with one of the Maids of Honor and the couple’s brother singing an original song written about the couple. Congrats again Amy and Joe. We are so glad that love prevailed for you two in the time of Covid.
