About Colby & Amanda

Colby has over 15 years of ministry experience working with Young Life and at Life.Church. He is passionate about marriage and seeing marriages transformed by Christ.

Amanda owns Embellished Weddings, a premier wedding planning company in the OKC/Edmond area. After planning hundreds of weddings over the past 13 years, she has seen a lot of engaged couples focus on the wedding and not the marriage. She would love to see couples spend as much time (if not more) planning their MARRIAGE as they do planning their WEDDING.

Our Story

Maybe we are so passionate about this because we have walked through some life circumstances that could have easily led us to the “D” word (divorce). In 2013, Amanda battled through postpartum psychosis that brought about extremely challenging circumstances in our marriage and family. Through that time we decided to live out our vows daily. For better, for worse. For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. In 13 years of marriage, we have experienced better, worse, rich, poor, sickness and health and we will continue to experience those as our marriage continues. We are grateful for an intentional engagement season that helped us through our hard times.

Our Family

We have been married for 13 years. We have 6 kids ranging in age from 1-10. We live in Edmond, Oklahoma and run a non-profit that focuses on marriage and family.
