Winter Bavaria Downs Wedding | Amy + Pat

Amy and Pat are married, again – and their Winter Bavaria Downs wedding is on the blog. I have had the privilege of getting to know Amy, Pat, and their adorable dog Louie over the last two wedding seasons. Covid restrictions dramatically changed their wedding day only a few weeks before the big day in 2020. Mr. and Mrs. Blake preserved and made do with the last-minute changes and still had an intimate ceremony with just their immediate families. This time around, and almost a year later, they were finally able to celebrate a vow renewal with all of their family and friends in their original venue!

Over the last two years, I have been able to get to know both Amy and Pat’s families really well. So much so that I felt so comfortable and welcomed when my team and I are with them! They truly took us in as part of the family on their second wedding day, and we are so thankful for clients that leave feeling more like friends than anything. At the end of the night, I went to give Amy a hug goodbye and we both could not believe it was over! All of the emails, the inspiration mood boards, the timeline changes, the dress changes, every little detail was so thought out and now it was all over! I could not be happier for them, and I am so honored to have clients that make this part of our journey so bittersweet.

Amy and Pat’s wedding took place at Bavaria Downs, an elegant estate with dreamy french details throughout the property. Their bridal party complimented the couple in seasonal emerald velvet dresses and timeless black tuxes (my favorite!). Their dog, Louie, even had a corsage for his collar for the affair.

It is my pleasure to introduce to you for the *second* time, Mr. and Mrs. Blake! Check out the vendors who made Amy and Pat’s Bavaria Downs wedding a dream come true.

I'm Brooke.

hello, there!

You will never regret taking the time to find the perfect photographer to capture all the details of your family in a way that feels like a true representation of who you are. Photos are, after all, the only thing you have to remember your moments by. As for me, I’m a believer that moments big and small are worth photographing, from your maternity moments and baby’s first year to those just-because moments.

captured with LOVE.
