Amanda and Eric
October 11, 2008
Amanda and Eric got married on Saturday at the lovely Lionscrest Manor, high on a hill north of Boulder. Their wedding had a beautifully executed pink and brown theme, with subtle reflections of their passions for dogs. Amanda and Eric train puppies for the guide dog program, and I’m fascinated by the work that they do. Their two dogs attended the wedding, including one who is leaving for his official guide dog training later this month. You might remember all of them from their engagement session last year.
Saturday’s weather brought temperatures in the 30s and a steady rain all day. It was too bad that we missed out on Lionscrest’s mountain views, but still it was a beautiful wedding, and we were glad to be a part of it.
Congratulations, Amanda and Eric!
This was a first for me: part of Amanda’s getting ready process involved brushing Nasa’s teeth.

The rain couldn’t take away the beautiful fall colors.

I wonder what was going through Eric’s mind here.
Amanda and Eric hired filmmaker Ken Wajda to create a super 8 film of the wedding.
Does anyone know what these spiral flowers in the bouquets are? I loved them!

Before the ceremony, Amanda’s mother gave her a gift that she had made.
It was an exquisite garter made from Amanda’s mother’s, grandmother’s, and great-grandmother’s wedding gowns.
Amanda’s father’s eyes nearly popped out of his head when he saw her in her gown.
I loved this moment between Amanda and her brother.
Nasa carried the rings in a velvet box on his leash.

The tables were named for puppies in the guide dog program.
Their were subtle pawprints hidden among the flowers on the cake.
I hoped this boy would do something interesting during my long exposure, and sure enough, he jumped over a puddle!

I had fun with these adorable twins!
I love it when families dance together like this.
