At the peak of last fall’s incredible foliage, Amy and JD celebrated their forever love by tying the knot with a gorgeous Hamilton Farm Golf Club wedding! Their wedding day was truly a celebration of two families joining together in love and laughter!
Amy spent the morning getting ready in her childhood home, surrounded by her family and closest friends! Amy and her friends jumped on the bed in excitement – she couldn’t wait to marry JD! With help from her mom, Amy dressed in her breathtaking gown custom designed by family friend Ralph Rucci and slipped on her Stuart Weitzman heels. After posing with her beautiful bridesmaids, Amy made her way to the church to marry JD!
JD burst into a smile as soon as he saw his beautiful Amy walk down the aisle. Their ceremony was lovely and had an intimate feel due to the closeness of having only family in their bridal party! When Amy and JD were pronounced husband and wife, their guests applauded as the newlyweds shared a perfect first kiss as a married couple!
After their beautiful ceremony, Amy and JD hopped into a vintage white car and drove up the long, tree-lined street to their Hamilton Farm Golf Club wedding! The happy couple had so much fun together posing for portraits among the gorgeous sunset-colored foliage. After Amy and JD spent their first moments as husband and wife together, they joined their guests for a wonderful indoor/outdoor cocktail hour with breathtaking views of the perfect autumn scenery!
Amy and JD entered their Hamilton Farm Golf Club wedding to cheers and applause from their family and friends! Their first dance to “You Are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne was romantic and full of sweet moments and joyful smiles. Amy and JD’s guests joined them on the dance floor for an incredible celebration! JD’s family shared a fun tradition started by his grandfather: during “Shout”, all the men put napkins on their heads and danced around JD’s grandmother! This silly and adorable dance has been a part of every wedding since JD’s grandfather passed away. It was amazing to see these two loving families join together!
Amy and JD stole away to share a dance under the romantic outdoor lanterns at dusk. They celebrated their first sunset as husband and wife with a warm embrace and a sweet kiss, highlighted by sparkling stars and golden lanterns.
