Their Love Story
Amanda and Mike met through Amanda’s older brother, Anthony. Mike was always hanging out at their house growing up! As the years went on, Anthony would bring his friends to visit Amanda at Keene State College.
Mike and Amanda would always share knowing looks – they both liked each other but weren’t ready to admit it! On her 21st birthday, the crew partied a little too much and Mike brought Amanda home and took care of her! Finally they started dating and a few years later, their first love, Autumn was born! And five years after that they had their second love, Willow!
A Perfect Fall Day at Willow Spring Vineyards in Haverhill, MA
So now you understand why they decided to get married in AUTUMN at WILLOW Springs Vineyard! I just love this so much! They also chose the venue because Mike and his dad were the ones to remodel the barn there, making it look beautiful for future couples to get married – including Amanda and Mike!
I originally booked with these two in January of 2020, so when COVID hit, things had to change. They decided to downsize their guest list and have a more intimate wedding with their family and close friends. Regardless of the change in plans, it was a gorgeous and warm fall day for these two to say their vows. Everything from the location to the flowers to the ceremony was so thoughtful and perfect!
