“What’s comin’ will come and we’ll meet it when it does.” – Hagrid
This is my favorite quote from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, which I recently just reread on Audible. The reason I went back and read these 7 books (for a combined whopping 116 hours and 7 minutes) was because of this newlywed couple you see here!
Andrew used a Harry Potter themed pick up line when he first met Amanda and later proposed by creating a Harry Potter inspired movie trailer, which he had play at a movie theater that Amanda was visiting. Basically, they really like this fiction series, like a lot. After hanging out with them on their engagement session (which you can check out here), I decided to revisit the series. I was much more attentive this time around and I realized just how much they cover topics and issues that we face in our daily lives. Obvious themes like virtue, standing up for what is right despite it not being what is popular, but also love.
I know that Andrew’s father would have loved to be there for this special day and would have marveled at how beautiful Amanda looked in her lace wedding dress. Harry Potter reminds me the power of love continues after losing someone and that love unites us. Love is one of the greatest things we can do and I am so happy to have been able to capture all the love present at Andrew and Amanda’s wedding day. I wish them many more years of love and adventures together and will always think of them whenever I pick up a copy of Harry Potter!
