Some couples’ chemistry captivates you. Amanda and Nate have such chemistry. Nate is a veritable whirlwind, all the while making sure everyone is having an awesome time. Amanda, who owns a dance academy in Vancouver, is a perfect compliment to Nate. Only a dancer would be able to keep up with Nate’s spirit.
At one point when Nate was marching into the distance and the wedding party had no choice but to follow, Amanda turned to me and said, “I’m not the bride.” Indeed, Nate had a vision for how to make his friends and family have as fun a day as he had, and that day delivered. The ceremony was at the base of Red Mountain Resort, under dramatic clouds that broke open only after we’d moved up to Rafter’s for the reception. Their guests delivered some of the most heartfelt, honest, and hilarious speeches I’ve ever heard, leaving me and a lot of the guests as tearful as Amanda and Nate–well, mostly Nate.
