2 0 F a l l | W i n t e r B R I D E BOOTED KICKOFF 5.20.2017 Amanda Limer & Tyler Winger Wedding date: May 20, 2017. Occupations: She works for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as deputy commander's secretary. He works for Video Solutions Inc. as audio video integrator. How they met: "Ty and I had talked online for a while and then decided to finally meet," Amanda says. "On Valentine's Day 2006, I went to Ty's house to meet him and hang out, and his parents and brothers were also there, so I ended up meeting everyone at once." Engagement story: In addition to being a former Louisville Bride cover girl, Amanda was in the music video for "Bring It on Home" by Little Big Town. In it, her sweater unthreads, giving the fictional boyfriend a trail to follow back to her. "My proposal mimicked the music video," Ty says. "One Saturday my mother took Amanda for a pedicure, allowing me to set up my proposal. I wrapped a piece of yarn throughout the barn and trees on our property, leading to a girl's sweater as if it was coming unthreaded. The shirt read, 'Will You Marry Me?'" Number of wedding guests: 125. Ceremony and reception: Old Blue Ribbon Farm in Henry County. Wedding theme: Rustic, outdoors Personal touches: "We love the outdoors, hunting and fly fishing," says Amanda, "so we used deer antlers for our centerpiece decorations. My gift to Ty was custom cufflinks with a fly-fishing fly made into them. We both wore our cowboy boots." The bride's parents built the wedding arch and wood decorations, including custom cornhole boards, which they used as a guestbook. "I'm very sentimental," Amanda says, "so anything else I needed, I raided my mom's house and took her antiques to use as decorations. From the deer antlers to the old Mason jars, it looked exactly as I imagined." Entertainment: Adkins Island. First-dance song: "I Don't Dance" by Lee Brice. The day in three words: "Unforgettable, perfect, country." Favorite part of the day: "During our reception it rained for about 10 minutes and left behind the most beautiful rainbow and sunset. We grabbed (photographer) Mickie and ran outside to take photos before it was gone. Our guests joined in with their cameras, capturing the sky. It was amazing to share that moment. When we took the last picture, the rainbow had disappeared as quickly as it formed." One disagreement: Wedding party size. Really glad they: "Sampled the cake because it was gone before we could get a full slice." Wish they would have: "Had more time to visit at the reception. "It was amazing to have so many family and friends together in one place." Advice: "If you're DIY like us, book your vendors ASAP. They really do fill up fast." Wed On Weddings LOCAL
