wild basin lodge wedding
Amanda and Brent are a lovely couple. They had a beautiful wedding on Monday at Wild Basin Lodge and what a gorgeous day it was!
Wild Basin Lodge is such an incredible venue with the most amazing staff of kind and genuine people who love what they do and cherish their brides and grooms!
Amanda and Brent are a joyful couple and I truly enjoyed witnessing their love for one another and their kindness for everyone around them. One of the biggest blessings of my job is meeting incredible people that inspire me in so many ways!
I asked Amanda to tell me a little about how her and Brent met. Here is what she had to say…
“I met Brent at the local race track. I knew Brent was made for me the moment I asked him if he wanted a beer and said no! However, moments later he tapped me on the shoulder and said he would like that beer. Brent has something warming about him, that I would not let go of for anything. After being best friends for years there was no stopping it. We would make each other the only thing that mattered to us. I can truly say I’m about to marry my best friend.”
and their proposal story…
“Brent asked me to marry him on the last snow day in 2014. For some reason in my old age I have been remembering when the last snow fall of the year has been. When you’ve been with someone as long as I’ve been with Brent, it gets pretty hard to pull the wool over each other eyes. We started the afternoon at one of our favorite restaurants, in downtown Prescott. I was asked to join in a walk around the square, you could see the disappointment in Brent’s face when we walked around the corner and there were a million bikes ready to start a marathon. He asked me where I thought they were heading, I replied with another one of my favorites spot in town, Thumb Butte. So we headed to the house that we made our home together for the past 2 years. I took a nap as Brent worked on his Jeep. I came outside afterwards to bring him in for the day, it was freezing,windy, and the snow was starting again. He grabbed me and sat me on my favorite thing in the world; our dog house he built us. I knew it was coming so I closed my eyes so tight, I could not believe someone as perfect as Brent would ask me to marry him. I knew we agreed to be together for the long haul, but it still was surreal. As I opened my eyes to check out the most beautiful ring, the sun popped out of this one cloud and hit my ring so perfect, it was magic. As I said yes, the dogs went nuts as if they were agreeing.”
I just love their story and how fun loving they were the entire day!
