Timacuan Golf Club Wedding – Amber & Rhode

Amber and Rhode tied the knot in Lake Mary, Florida, where guests traveled in from across the country to witness the two make a beautiful commitment to one another and to celebrate all night with the now official Mr. and Mrs. McPherson.Our

Their story began back in November of 2012 when they were both working on the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), they spent most of their time busy with their careers, but fortunately, as luck may have it, a mutual friend introduced them and their friendship began. After about a year of being best of friends, they realised that there was an undeniable spark between them both. In 2014 they made their relationship official, but Rhode knew a proposal was not long behind. He had fallen in love with the girl of his dreams and couldn’t imagine anyone else being his wife.

Planning out a beautiful night at their favorite French dinner followed by vineyard touring the next day, Rhode knew his engagement would be absolutely incredible. Unfortunately, things didn’t go quite as planned, and upon asking Amber out on the incredible date he had planned, she asked him to just cook at home for her instead! That is so the kind of thing that would happen to us… sometimes a home cooked meal is just needed! Are we right?!

Rolling with the punches, Rhode made a beautiful dinner, but knew that the next day would be absolutely amazing. Well, when the next day of vineyard wine touring came, Amber asked to stay at home and snuggle up for the day instead! Wanting Rhode all to herself for the day and later planning dinner with friends, Rhode knew that it was now or never. Spending the day together was amazing and before the two headed out to go shopping for dinner, Rhode bent down on one knee and asked for Amber’s hand in marriage. Worried she would catch on before the night ended, he knew that the imperfect time was nothing but perfect. As Amber remembers it, “he took the ring out of his pocket and honestly I don’t remember what he said, because I was so shocked! I kissed him and hugged him and said, “are you serious?!” and then made him get up.” Of course, Rhode wanted an official answer before standing up, “umm you haven’t said yes?” Amber, of course, said “yes!”

Amber knew that their wedding day would be amazing because as she explained it “no matter what happens I will have my family and best friends with me so it will be perfect!” Their day started off with capturing Amber’s details along with a few adorable shots of her and her girls in their custom embroidered jean button downs before getting in her dress. Rhode was getting ready elsewhere and upon arriving the photographers grabbed a few quick shots of him and his guys playing Texas Holdem along with suiting up.A first look followed with the couple seeing one another underneath a 30-year-old oak tree canopy. It was the perfect spot with the perfect amount of shade and beautiful dappled light that fell gently on Amber as she walked up to Rhode.
