Hello to all of my fantastic blog readers (and even more fantastic brides)!!!
OK, I know that I've been pretty active with the blog lately, and you all may be getting tired of finding me in your inbox everyday, but bear with me because you know the madness is coming and soon enough I'll be going months with no posts. So, here's one more!
I am so excited to announce that Amelia Soper Photography (that's me!) has been selected as a 2011 winner in The Knot Best of Weddings!!! Fun, right?! So I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of last year's wonderful couples who took the time to share their generously kind words on The Knot's sister site, Wedding Channel, you know who you are!! Your words warmed the cockles of my heart. It's like this: You know how there's that person in your life that you totally adore but you're sure they couldn't possibly feel the same way? And then you find out through your sister's coworker's ex-fiancee's landlord that that certain person actually DOES feel the same way!? Well that's totally how I feel right now. :) While I would love to post all of your extremely humbling comments, here are a few of the overwhelmingly kind words I received from some of my new friend's this year-
...She was such a good sport, and so out of the box and entertaining that we hardly noticed it was raining all over us. She had us laughing up a storm, and being silly, even while we were cold and soaked! My bridesmaids had smiles on their faces the entire time, and so did Amy! She doesn’t have to work to make people smile, she’s naturally funny. No, actually, hilarious. -Lindsey
I never write reviews on anything. But having had almost two months to reflect on our wonderful wedding, I felt compelled to write a review about Amy, with the hopes that other couples would get a chance to experience her exceedingly rare combination of charm, friendliness, artistic talent, work ethic, and stunning photographs. -John
It felt like one of my really good friends was taking our pictures and this is so important because you will be spending the entire day with them! -Annie
For those of you unfamiliar with The Knot, their Best of Weddings provides a “by brides, for brides” guide to the top wedding professionals across the country, and is a must-have when it comes to selecting the best-of-the-best wedding resources. From New York florists and Seattle bridal salons to DC makeup artists, engaged couples will find detailed feedback on local wedding businesses reviewed by thousands of newlyweds who had great things to say. (yeah, I took all that right off their site...)
So, again, thank you thank you thank you, from the bottom of my heart!!!! Here's to another wonderful wedding season and even more fabulous brides and grooms!!! (Which incidentally starts next weekend in Miami, woohoo!!)
