We knew Amber and Drew’s Game of Thrones-themed wedding at Cloisters Castle was going to be unlike any other we had every photographed!! And… it was! Amber and Drew’s amazing vendor team, lead by Tiffanie of Bird of Paradise Events, contributed some amazing details to gold-leaf florals to an extraordinary sugar paste dragon climbing up an intricately detailed castle wedding cake. It was such an exciting event for Amber and Drew’s guests (and us!) to be part of!!! But all of this wasn’t what made their wedding so sweet. No, their wedding was special because of Amber, Drew, their beautiful daughter Vera, and the family they have been becoming since they day they met.
Drew’s answer to our question “Describe your relationship in a few words” was very simple.
If I had to describe Amber and Drew’s wedding in one word, it would be the exact same: HAPPY.
Not rainy, not chilly, not pouring, storming, or drenching. Not gorgeously detailed, castle-themed, or exciting. Nope, it would be HAPPY – because that’s exactly what Amber and Drew chose to make of it. And it’s the only way anyone around Amber and Drew could possibly have felt last Saturday!!! Amber’s smile glowed, Drew was always ready with a laugh, and they were up for any change that the rain necessitated.
Maybe it’s parenthood that’s made Amber and Drew so relaxed. They have a beautiful one year old daughter named Vera. Susie and I were so touched by the way they wanted to be with her as much as possible on their wedding day. Drew carried a baggie of crackers in his hand during introductions, because he was feeding her while they lined up. She sat on Amber’s lap during speeches. They danced with her until she had to go to bed. The entire wedding day focused on not just Amber and Drew, but the entire family, Vera included, and it was a beautiful thing to be a part of!!!!
Amber and Drew, thank you for having us!!! All other readers… we are so thrilled to share the wedding day story of this amazing family. And WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE these castle details!!!
