When Amanda Burkhalter of Starry Eyed Photography had to decide whether or not she would be the photographer at her childhood friend Julie’s wedding or a bridesmaid the answer was very clear to her! Amanda said:
I HAD to choose bridesmaid! She was one of my bridesmaids and I could not wait to be one of hers!
Amanda had this to say about her friendship with Julie:
Julie and I have been friends as long as I can remember! We grew up together and have kept our friendship alive all these years despite living nearly 4 hours away from each other. The side by side pictures are of from our bridal showers. Both showers were held at the church we grew up in, although 9 years apart!
Amanda co-hosted bride Julie’s Hollywood themed bridal shower with the Mother-of-the-Bride and a few other family members and friends. Since Julie loves everything about the movies they thought a Hollywood shower theme would be fun!
Decor included shining star awards, favorite candy, popcorn containers, and lots of black, gold, and silver stars. Although, by far our favorite touch was the silver screen colored cake with the words “Happily Ever After Julie” written on it in a script font. It was by far the shining star of the decor, and yummy too!
When we asked Amanda to talk about the happy couple she said:
Julie and her soon-to-be-husband are perfect for each other! They are like puzzle pieces that are the exact fit and just complement each other amazingly. I’m so happy for them and can’t wait to take part in their special day!
How sweet is that! Julie is sure lucky to have Amanda as one of her bridesmaids.
