Most memorable moment of the day?
Amanda: Sitting in the grandstand with Alex during the reception for a few minutes while our photographers took pictures. We were able to take in the beautiful scenery of and had time to relax and reflect on the whole day and the new journey we were beginning!
Alex: The anticipation as I waited to see Amanda for the first time. Hearing her voice at first, then wondering how beautiful she looked, and then finally getting to see her.
Advice for future bride/grooms?
Amanda: Always focus on the big picture. You get to marry the love of your life and THAT'S the most important part!
Alex: Take a moment to make mental memories of what's going on and the people who are there to celebrate with you.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Amanda: There isn't anything we would change. Our Keeneland wedding was perfect and we are SO thankful to everyone involved! We loved every minute. Keeneland made it so easy and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Any little last minute things were taken care of for me so I could enjoy the day at the same time. I wouldn't have traded any of it.
