Share Your Wedding Story Featuring Amanda + Clint

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Planning a unique wedding within a budget is quite essential and a sign of prosperity for a future together. Here’s how Amanda planned her wedding. It was elegant, beautiful & affordable – something rare to find these days.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”Small Line” custom_height=”20″][vc_text_separator title=”Amanda & Clint give us a glimpse of their perfect day!” title_align=”separator_align_center”][vc_video link=”http://vimeo.com/95928843″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Theme” title_align=”separator_align_center”][vc_column_text]

I wanted an outdoor vintage inspired wedding. I always dreamed of being surrounded by the beauty of nature for my wedding. So finding the right venue was key! I wanted a venue that was so beautiful that most of the decoration would already be taken care of. And then I found Sundara!! Sundara is an apple orchard with a remodeled house built in the 1800s so the vintage feel was taken care of. It’s surrounded by mountains and beautiful huge trees. When I saw it I knew it was perfect for my wedding! They had a lovely tent lined with lights that would provide a perfect reception place and it was right next to the ceremony site which made it all the more better![/vc_column_text][image_with_animation image_url=”3271″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In From Left” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_blank”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Details” title_align=”separator_align_center”][vc_column_text]I wanted a very detailed wedding – Everything ended to fit down to the table numbers and seating chart. Lucky for me I married an artist so he was able to help me save money in a lot of ways! How did I start planning? My greatest help was Google. I searched for key words on Google images and saved all the photos I liked and then figured out how I could accomplish what I wanted in an affordable manner. For example I wanted a ribbon banner but couldn’t find one for less than $60 dollars so I went to a fabric store and bought tons of ribbon that were on sale and made one by my self for barely $30! My wedding was very vintage inspired. I used old French postcards and had my husband write the table numbers on them, I used an old window from habitat from humanity to write all the guests names on so they could find their seats. I hung pretty bottles with ribbon from the trees filled with baby’s breath (which is super cheap but very pretty). I had a table memory dedicated to passed loved ones, including my mother so this was very important to me. I have shared all of  these details  in picture if you would love to see them , watch the video! A picture is worth a thousand words![/vc_column_text][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” interval=”3″ images=”3270,3269,3267″ layout=”3″ gallery_style=”2″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Dress” title_align=”separator_align_center”][vc_column_text]When it came to choosing the wedding dress I began searching the moment I knew I was getting engaged! It was very important to me to not feel rushed in making this decision! I started my search online. One thing I knew from other friends getting married that I didn’t want anything David’s Bridal had to offer.

Number one: I didn’t want a dress that a thousand others girls had worn.

Number two: All of the fabrics looked cheap to me and wasnt what I really wanted. I wanted a very soft, flowery, and bohemian/vintage look.

All I did was search based on the key words and on Etsy I discovered Grace Loves Lace. I immediately fell in love with their dresses. Theirs designs were perfect and I read countless testimonies from all over the world that their dresses were of great quality. They were located in Australia so the dress would be customized upon order. Many girls thought I was crazy for buying a wedding dress that I couldn’t try on! However, it turned out to be my favorite decision and  had a much lower price point then dresses I had seen that were no where near the same quality. My dress was extremely light and flowing so I could move and be comfortable. I had seen so many brides looking miserable during their own wedding because their dress were too tight and I did not want that! I was sure I could be a beautiful bride and comfortable at the same time. That is exactly why I chose pretty ballet styled flats as well. I am still in love with my dress completely and keep finding reasons to put it back on![/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Advice for Brides-To-Be” title_align=”separator_align_center”][fancy-ul icon_type=”font_icon” icon=”icon-home” color=”Accent-Color” enable_animation=”true”]

  • I would encourage every bride to truly not sweat over the small things! You only get to be a bride once!
  • Things might go wrong, but at the end of the day you are married to the love of your life and that’s what matters!
  • It’s about celebrating your love and the details will fall into place. We  planned our  wedding for almost a year and I thought nthat everything would be take care of! However, despite all my handwork and planning small things did not go as planned! That is just life. Don’t let it distract you from the moment because you blink and the day is over. At the end of it all I was so ready to Mrs.Keffer I almost ran down the isle! I could think about the small things I wish could have gone differently but it was our wedding so it was perfect.
  • A beautiful day filled with love, friends, and family all coming together and it’s an amazing moment to be cherished for a lifetime.
  • Don’t let the opinions of others take away your joy!
  • Everyone will have something to say about how you are going about your wedding but just politely listen and take what you want and leave what you don’t!
  • When it’s their wedding they get to call the shots but this day belongs to you and your love and it’s impossible to make everyone happy.

Yes, I went hiking up in my abaya, and whined that I couldn't make it up in time for the sunset, and couldn't make it up anyways.
I questioned posting this several times because my @skechers looked dirty
But then again, what is hiking without all that mess that gets on you? Its messy but this view is all you tend to remember in the end. The Beauty of Travel 💗 .

Nothing in life comes easy. Happiness comes from within. Everyone has their own opinion on what success is.
It is upto you to decide and work for the success you believe in honestly, and kindly. I always believe in the fact that if you put your heart and soul in paving your way, pulling up as many people as you can along the way, you will find yourself in a place you are content with, and surrounded by the right people.
It will happen but it will take time.
PERSEVERANCE & KINDNESS is key 🗝🗝🗝

MY VEIL STORY
They told me " I didnt have to wear the veil there. My husband wasn't around." I listened. I smiled. I didnt say anything back.
Little did they know that my husband had nothing to do with my veil.
It was my choice and I Didn't do it for him. What if my husband wasn't there?My religion to me is submission to God. He is all-seeing, all-hearing!I hear a lot of assumptions often and here's what I feel about it. Unless you are in their shoes, and you know every detail of their life, You dont have the right to assume. And, even if you do, please keep it to yourself, so that people are less hurt because of the assumptions you make.
Being fashionably nice is not in looks alone, it is in trying to hurt  as less possible around you with your words. Words once spoken that you cant take back!
Your choice of words are everything! It determines your style, class and elegance more than anything

Its easy to forget the beautiful memories we have like a beautiful sunrise.
Social Media makes it easy to whine and complain about things we dont have.
Perhaps if we remind ourselves more of the beautiful memories we have everyday, its going to be easier to be content with everything we have and get to experience in our life everyday!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.
