Amber + Tyler's Intimate Wedding | Madison, North Carolina


Amber + Tyler’s Wedding at Bonamanzee | Madison, North Carolina


Amber and Tyler have such a beautiful love story! These two have been together for ten years!!! They met in high school at a midnight bowling event through a lot of mutual friends and from there it grew! Tyler proposed to Amber at 1970’s themed surprise cookout with all of their friends and family present. They also kept the t1970’s theme for their intimate wedding. They brought in 70’s furniture, glass wear and asked the guest to wear their best vintage attire. The details of their day were so well planned and made the space lovely!

Before the ceremony Amber and Tyler got ready with their closest friends. They each got to share moments with their parents before the ceremony started, exchanging words of encouragement and gifts of meaning. Amber and Tyler also exchanged gifts right before the ceremony. They wanted to save the big moment of seeing each other for the isle so with a door separating them they were able to share a moment together beforehand. Tyler wrote and gave Amber a moving poem he had written and a pair of roller skates that she was super stoked about! Amber gave Tyler a book of boudoir images we had captured my last visit to NC int their home without him knowing. He was for sure surprised and admired the gift with it’s special touches of Amber wearing some pieces from her own clothing line, Desirables by AmberNicole, and taking a few pictures with their sweet cat!

Their perfect match and love for each other showed as they read their vows to each other and a lot of the vows and memories were very much the same. The ceremony was filled with laughter, tears and big smiles! It was a moment these two have been dreaming of for a while and were definitely happy to finally be calling each other husband and wife. One of the sweetest moments was after the ceremony when Tyler and Amber’s parents shared a group hug of congrats, it truly was two families becoming one.

Amber and Tyler tied the knot at Bonamanzee in Madison, North Carolina. The venue is a home with a bridal suite and an area for the groomsmen to get ready. There is a beautiful deck under the trees for you to share your vows for a small wedding. There is a beautiful patio for your reception, as well as, an outdoor fireplace area and a couple of other decks. It is a great place for couples portraits after the wedding as well. We took advantage of the beautiful vintage living room that Amber and Tyler had created for portraits. Then we ventured off by the lake, the woods and into an area that gave me all of those Pacific Northwest vibes. Amber and Tyler set aside an hour for their portraits which was so nice for them to be able to have time alone to celebrate getting married, enjoy the moment and be sure to leave the day with beautiful images of them two in their wedding attire.

The reception started with the first dances. These dances will truly be remembered. The dance between Amber & Tyler was a beautiful well done planned dance. They were smiling and laughing the entire time and all of the guest enjoyed standing by to watch. Amber and her dad’s dance was filled with love and emotion with a few spins here and there. Tyler and his mom’s dance was so much fun with a lively music choice! When speaking with Amber prior to the wedding she mentioned how they were both the most excited to dance with friends and family in celebration at the reception. I can assure you it was probably the best dance party you have seen at a wedding! They ended the night with cheesecakes of the best flavors! <3
