The Wedding of Amanda and Zachary

Our Real Wedding: April 30, 2021

“Overall, we had an amazing experience using Mike Staff Productions. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure our day was unforgettable. We would highly recommend Mike Staff!!!” – Happy Bride, Amanda

Our Love Story

We met at a graduation party, right after Zac graduated high school. We started dating shortly after we met. Fast forward seven years, we started planning our first international trip to Switzerland with our best friends. Who later became our best man and matron of honor at our wedding. Zac proposed to Amanda on the first night in Luzern on the famous Chapel Bridge. Another, 3 years and 2 postponed weddings, we’re finally married!

Our Wedding Vision & How The Pandemic Changed It

I really didn’t have a vision when I was planning. I just knew that we wanted our day to be celebrated surrounded by our closest friends and family. We had to change our wedding date three times due to Covid. In the end, we had to switch wedding venues from Lovett Hall to Venue One Eleven.

Fun fact: Both me and Zac were unable to tour the venue before our wedding so the first time we saw the venue was when we walked in as husband and wife. Some of my favorite moments from my wedding day would have to be the look on Zac’s face as I was walking down the aisle, our first dance, and the father daughter dance.

Our Wedding DJ

Yes, we danced to from the ground up by Dan and Shay. We have seen them in concert a few times over the years and have become one of our favorite bands. The lyrics just reminded us of both our grandparents and the amazing lives they have shared together. The song also, made us look back at all the time we had already shared together as well as all of the future years to come.

Our Wedding Video

The wedding video was super important to us to have as a keepsake so we could always look back on our special day. We have already watched the mini video five times! We’ve both commented about how we missed little moments that the camera caught.

Our Wedding Photography

We didn’t have any complaints working with our photographer. John did an amazing job letting us know what to do he made the entire process super simple. Our photos were really important to us since we will continue to look at them/reminisce on the day for the rest of our lives.
