The Saiennis | Stone Ridge Hollow Wedding


Amanda + Vinnie are some of the most kind hearted people we’ve ever met! We loved being a part of their Stone Ridge Hollow wedding and had a blast alongside them all day. These two are no exception to the fact that we always get so lucky with the couples we have the opportunity to photograph. We first met them at their engagement session this past year and fell in love with their personalities and Amanda’s hair!! I mean come on how stunning is she?! Also, to no ones surprise, we fell in love with their dog, Mason. We’ve had so many dogs as part of weddings this year and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Mason got to walk down the aisle and even take a few photos with his mom and dad. We love the energy and cuteness that he brought to the day.


The day started off strong with Amanda’s first look with her dad. I loved witnessing her mom crying in the corner of the room and all of her bridesmaids were wiping their tears while they watched. It was such a precious moment. Then, Amanda even brought her mom over to give gifts to both of her parents. Amanda’s sticker photo for the back of her father’s tie was the sweetest gift. It was a photo of her and her dad when she was a little girl that she wanted him to have close to his heart all day! We hope that more bride’s do this on their wedding days!


Vinnie and Amanda shared personal vows at their first look. It was so touching and emotional. First looks have quickly become one of my favorite parts of the day.

There are many benefits, so we always like to educate our couples about them. We know that they aren’t for everyone and will never force one on our couples, but do love the sweet moments that come from adding this moment to the wedding day!

Overall we had a fantastic time celebrating with this stunning couple and like all of our couples, we hope to work with them again in the future!
