Amanda and Ben – July 23, 2016

Amanda and Ben were married at the Pruyn House on July 23, 2016. These two are the sweetest, most kind hearted people you will ever meet and it was an absolute privilege to be a part of their day. Amanda and Ben are BOTH teachers, so you can imagine the attention to detail and organization (in the form of spreadsheets… so many spreadsheets!) that went into this wedding. 
 
Their day started with beautiful July skies, a little nerves and the lovely Crystal McDaniel Gardner of MaryKay and Piper Bisnett of Jean Paul Salon for hair and make-up. These ladies worked their magic and got Amanda and her closest girls ready for what was about to be a perfect day. Ben and his men arrived on location and hung out in the awesome school house on Pruyn House property to get ready in ‘old-school’ style. 
 
The Sacandaga String Band created a ceremony space filled with simple and soft music while guests arrived. Amanda’s life-long friend, Danielle Upton, officiated and brought beautiful personal touches to the ceremony. You could feel the love and support from family and friends all around and after a few tears were shed and sweet words were exchanged- these two self-proclaimed ‘science nerds’ were married!
 
A short walk to the barn transported Amanda and Ben’s guests into a night filled with delicious food provided by Nicole’s Catering and celebratory dancing and the best tunes around thanks to Claude Sawyer from LaBOOM Entertainment.
 
In addition to everyone above, we worked with an amazing group of professionals including Yuliya Peshkova who documented their day beautifully, the stunning flowers were provided by Foxtail Community Farm and we had the pleasure of working with the two loveliest ladies at the Pruyn House – Diane Morgan and Nancy Macy. 
 
Working with Amanda and Ben was a dream, they were so easy going and deserve all the happiness in the world! Thank you so much for including us in your special day and for being spectacular friends!
 
xoxo,
 
Kate & Tommie 

The happy bride showing some love to her wedding planners…  🙂
