Amanda was born in Kentucky and raised in South Florida. According to Amanda she is very book smart, but not “street smart” which keeps her friends laughing. Vince grew up in Lake Worth and was a star football player in high school. After a troubling time as a teenager, Vince is now a minister and evangelist.
Amanda and Vince met online and after talking for several months decided to try a first date. Amanda was attracted to Vince’s leadership abilities and his love for God. Vince was attracted to Amanda’s loving and kind personality. They both realized soon after the first date, they were meant to be together for a lifetime.
A romantic trip to Saint Augustine, Florida was the setting for the engagement. Amanda had an idea that Vince might propose during the trip. During a long, sweaty walk in the Florida heat Vince dragged Amanda up several flights of stairs to the top of a lighthouse. There surrounded by tourists, Vince read Amanda a poem and got down on one knee. Fortunately a kind bystander was able to take pictures of the momentous occasion. Amanda was thrilled to say yes to the man of her dreams and begin wedding planning!
The Ceremony at Flagler Place, Stuart, Florida
The day of the ceremony did not go exactly as planned, but still turned out gorgeous. Amanda maintained her composure through a guest getting injured, food being prepped in the dark and having a bridesmaid go to the store for last minute items. Amanda planned the ceremony herself and wanted the ceremony to be a reflection of God’s love. As Amanda and Vince exchanged vows the guests looked on with joy. Amanda and Vince were happy to finally be husband and wife and they described the day as perfect and magical.
The Reception at Flagler Place was creative and kept guests laughing. Between a round of the newlywed game and the bride and groom smashing cake into each other’s faces, guests had a blast. The wedding cake by PamCakes was stunning and guest enjoyed a fun photo booth as well. The evening was also romantic as Vince and Amanda shared a private, intimate last dance alone in the venue after the guests moved outside. The newlyweds left the venue under an awning of sparklers. The night was picture perfect.
Amanda and Vince went to Riviera Maya in Mexico for their Honeymoon. They enjoyed a week of being treated like a King and Queen. They explored caves, climbed the Mayan Ruins and swam with dolphins. The adventure for these two will continue as they enjoy life as newlyweds.
