Featurette: Eric and Amanda
Eric first contacted me with a long, thought out email about the love of his life. Both he and Amanda have been together since high school. As soon as they both graduated from college and Eric had saved up for the ring, he asked. And Amanda said 'yes'.
You can tell by the words Eric says (who knew grooms gave speeches at their own weddings?!) how much he's been looking forward to this day and how much he cherishes his new bride. It was quickly apparent when getting together with them and seeing them on their wedding day that this love, grown for almost a decade, is deeply rooted in friendship. It's this love that puts that catch in Amanda's voice when she promises her forever. And it's this love that has Eric blinking back tears when he sees his bride for the first time.
