Real Weddings: Amanda + Troy

Amanda and Troy’s wedding was a complete DIY labor of love – a product of caring friends and a loving and devoted family.  After considering several local venues, the couple looked closer to home and decided to marry outdoors at Amanda’s parents’ home, nestled amongst her grandfather’s farm, in Wooster, Ohio.  Blessed with green thumbs, Amanda and her mother grew all of the amazing flowers for the wedding, including an amazing array of gorgeous dahlias – bliss dahlias, koko puff dahlias, maki dahlias, Miss Molly dahlias, Zippity Do Da dahlias, and sonic bloom dahlias… I am swooning over all these delectable blooms beautifully arranged by CR Blooms, Amanda and her mum. With the help of family and friends, all the planning and DIY details came together seamlessly, and I’m utterly in love with all of the gorgeous images from Arielle Doneson!

      Do you know what color the bridesmaid dresses were ordered in? I’m guessing it’s Rose but it looks a lot lighter on the Bari Jay website. They are absolutely stunning.

      These are so artful and creative – absolutely love them! I am always looking at this site but have never commented until now. These are really beautiful and special.

    3. There is no one else in the world who could capture the magic and love and light of wedding the way Arielle Doneson does. She doesn’t merely capture the image– she captures the essence.

      Arielle Doneson truly exceeded our expectations in a photographer! We were over the moon with the memories she provided to us and her talent is unrivaled!! She is dedicated, passionate, professional, and crazy brilliant!!

      @sinead, the bridesmaid dresses were ordered in the color rose. I do think the online color swatch is slightly different than what you see in person. It is a beautiful color on all skin types! The flower girl dresses were a few shades lighter than the bridesmaid dresses.

      @Cheri (WoodsyWeddings) and @Kate (Floret Cadet) – That is Bentley, my 8 year old cocker spaniel/yorkie mix, my child!! Love him! He was very nervous/anxious on our wedding day…followed me around in a panic most of the time and was often sitting on my dress. :)

    5. Arielle did such a wonderful job with the photography! She is such a pleasure to work with, and is such romantic herself it’s easy to see the love she captures in her photos. Bravo on capturing the memories of such a beautiful wedding :)
