It was love at first sight for Amanda, when she set eyes on the Luxmore Grande Estate- and her hubby-to-be, Sean, of course! Amanda and Sean’s classic, burgundy wedding was a perfect match for the Autumn day on which they exchanged their vows.
Hair and makeup began bright & early- the Luxmore’s bridal suite was abuzz with wedding-day jitters! Amanda and her ladies sported matching ensembles: matching tops that made for cute getting-ready photos. Khim Higgins Photography captured the morning’s sweet & tender moments between Amanda and her loved ones.
Meanwhile, Sean and his groomsmen made their own fun and arrived at the Luxmore Grande Estate a little later in the day. Sean wore a classic black Tux & tie, with a burgundy-colored vest and black shoes. The groomsmen were also clad in black tuxes, blush vests and ties with black shoes.
Amanda looked so beautiful in her trumpet laced gown by Oleg Cassini. Amanda’s bridesmaids complemented her look by dressing in tea-length gowns that matched. Amanda’s two, Junior bridesmaids sported burgundy dresses that matched the overall wedding theme.
The couple ’s twin boys were the cutest ring-bearers! They looked the part in their white button-up shirts, burgundy bows-ties, and suspenders.
First Look & Ceremony
During the couple’s First Look, Sean was blindfolded with his grandfather’s tie to prolong the anticipation of seeing Amanda. We can still hear their giggles! When Sean finally got to see Amanda in her full bridal glory, he was blown away.
From the First Look, Amanda was ready to hop in a limo and head to the ceremony location: Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church. But first, Amanda’s dad was waiting for her, so he could catch his First Look before escorting her down the aisle.
The couple’s ceremony was a full mass and included a live singer. It was incredible! After being pronounced “Husband and Wife,” Amanda & Sean strolled around the church and took photos before heading back to the Luxmore for the cocktail hour & reception.
The reception space was dressed in burgundy, blush, taupe, and gold. Underneath the Luxmore’s stunning chandelier in the grand foyer, a loose garland of greenery adorned the staircase. In front of the staircase banisters, a collection of small & large lanterns lit the way. Seating assignments were displayed on two mirrors placed atop easels. The guests’ tables were fitted with burgundy Lamour linens, blush Lamour napkins, gold Belmont chargers, mahogany Chiavari chairs. Complementing the reception design, was Amanda and Sean’s sweetheart table; both the sweetheart table and the cake table were dressed in lace, taupe overlay.
Let’s talk about the party! The intros were fun, the couple’s first dance was touching- as were the parent dances. The dancing didn’t end! Rather than planning a special exit, Amanda & Sean boogied the night away with their friends and family.
At the evening’s end, guests were invited to take home a scented candle, as well as, some sweet treats courtesy of Florida Candy Buffets.
