Joel and Amanda are avid runners, so when they realized that the Brooklyn Half Marathon was the same day as their wedding, they knew exactly how they wanted to kick off the festivities!

Scroll down for the full story...










Bright and early, the two ran the race with 70 of their closest running buddies. Later on, the party really kicked off at the Greenpoint Loft. 
























Back at home, the two got ready together in their apartment. 


























Off to Greenpoint!

The ribbon installation was thoughtfully put up by a group of loving friends who were down to help make this day awesome. Inspired by an installation that had been made by Michelle Bablo, Amanda + Joel wanted similar but in their own colors. Their friends came through and made it happen!



















The ceremony included a Chinese tea ceremony AND a southern sweet tea ceremony for the parents. 


























They also did a Guatemalan lassoing ceremony, symbolizing an everlasting union.






































Night Kitchen blew minds with the menu... 








































































































Amanda + Joel loved the idea making their wedding dinner more personal, so they made an open call for a dessert potluck to their guests. The result was a massive buffet of different desserts made with pure love. 















Congrats, #Jmanda!
