Amanda Zidell & Aaron Brown 3.3.12

Amanda Zidell and Aaron Brown were married on March 3, 2012 at the groom’s parents’ home in Dallas. We love weddings at homes….there is something so intimate and personal about inviting your family and friends into your home to celebrate the most important day of your life. As you can see from the pictures and highlight video, this wedding was a huge production and undertaking…but at the end of the day, it was all about family and the intense love this bride and groom have for one another. And to top it off, these families really know how to throw a great party!! It was also really special to watch the relationship between Amanda and her future mother-in-law during the planning process…they truly love and respect one another…something that is rare these days between a daughter-in-law and mother-in-law. Congratulations Amanda and Aaron!! You two were a JOY to work with and we wish you all of the happiness in the world as you begin your lives together. A special thanks to Andrea Polito Photography for sharing these images with us.

Amanda and Aaron saw each other before the wedding so they could take all formal pictures before the wedding ceremony began…and it gave them the opportunity to sign the Ketubah together.
The entrance into the ceremony space (inside the tent)…
How fabulous is the existing tree that was incorporated into the Chuppah?! The Garden Gate covered it in white rose petals and Amanda and Aaron’s initials and wedding date was carved into trunk of the tree.
The pool was covered for the dance floor!
The outer walls of the tent were made to look like stars…beautiful!

Enjoy Amanda and Aaron’s highlight video from Elixir Entertainment…the time lapse of the tent installation is really impressive!
