An amazing rustic outdoor wedding at The Grand Barn at the Mohicans.
Story from the Bride, Amanda:
We crossed paths for the very first time in 2014 in uptown Charlotte. It would not be until several months later we would meet again and start dating. God’s timing is perfect and it was especially clear when Philip and I met again. Our chemistry was undeniable and from our very first date we were inseparable. Philip grew up in Toledo, OH where my dad was born and raised. Little did we know we were right around the corner from each other every Christmas since we were born. We only had to wait 20 some years to meet! When we first started dating I just finished Graduate school and Philip was living in uptown Charlotte. Around the time Philip and I re-met I was in the process of deciding whether Charlotte was where I wanted to be or if another city was more appealing. Our relationship grew more effortlessly than any I had ever experienced. I quickly knew I wanted to be wherever Philip was. Philip would drive to Mooresville where I was living at home with my parents after a day of work just to spend a few hours together. I would drive uptown to see Phil as much as I possibly could (that was a lot of gas money I didn’t have) I finally received the right job offer out of Grad school and moved closer to Philip in uptown. Our love for each other only grew stronger and we both knew early on we had found our "one." Philip asked me to be his wife on December 10th of 2016. He proposed at one of our favorite parks in Charlotte. Everything around me went fuzzy and I just kept saying oh my gosh, oh my gosh is this real? Those words perfectly describe every step of the way with Phil. He is the man of my dreams except he is real! Now, I can finally say I know what they mean by, “you know when you know!"
