On a cloudy Saturday afternoon, Natalie & Sasha were getting ready for their big day. The day they were going to say, "I DO".
When we arrived, Natalie was getting in those last minute details from the decorations, to the guest book, and to the flowers. Everything was coming together just perfectly! Sam and I began capturing the scene while Sasha was getting ready. Once we got what we needed, I made my way into the bridal area. Walking in, I could just feel the excitement in the air. Sasha was just glowing, and for a good reason!
Throughout my time with her, all I heard was laughter, jokes, and excitement. Seeing my brides happy always makes my day! It just shows me that they are ready to start the new chapter in their lives.
Soon after, it was time for the "first look". This is when my couples get to be together before they walk down the aisle. As you know, this really goes against tradition as they usually say, "It's bad luck to see the bride before the wedding day". But there's nothing wrong with breaking a few rules! It's also a great way to relieve those stubborn butterflies that gets your tummy going. But not only that, you get to share a sweet moment with your soulmate without having anyone else around to bother you. We love seeing the reaction from my couples. It's usually filled with tears, but good tears. Tears of happiness!
Soon after, it was time for the ceremony! Everyone made their way to the ceremony site, and all we could see were big smiles, and happy faces. Everyone was excited for the couple, and they couldn't wait to see what happened next.
One thing we did noticed was, the ceremony site looked a little different than what we normally see. The coordinator then came by to let us know that Natalie & Sasha were going to be coming in from the front, but through the sides, like a T entrance! It was the cutest thing! We have never seen a couple come in that way, and we loved how they made it their own. It was truly a special ceremony!
After a few sweet words, it was time for them to share their vows. Both Natalie & Sasha had the most beautiful things to share about one another. Part of it made us laugh, smile, and tear up. But I'm thinking someone must have brought an onion because we weren't the only ones getting watery eyed! ;)
And just like that, it was time for the portraits & the reception! So much love filled the area, and we could just see the happiness from all of their guests. Natalie & Sasha are such an amazing couple, and we literally cannot say it enough, we are so happy we were able to be a part of their day. We loved the energy, and we loved how much everyone was in support of their love. It was an amazing, and super sweet day, and we will never forget it!
Cheers to the newlyweds, and cheers to many more years of happiness, love, and safe keeping. Congratulations again, and we hope you had an amazing day filled with love, and a lot of wonderful memories! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special day, and we hope we captured lasting, and loving memories for your forever safe keeping!
