Natalie and Tyler’s wedding was one of those weddings that left you wanting to do it all over again. Maybe it was the packed dance floor, the band that you couldn’t sit down for, the gorgeous venue, the amazing family (if I do say so myself), the fact that these two want everyone around them to have the best day ever, or the perfect summer day, this day was everything Natalie and Tyler. I have watched Natalie grow from a little girl I used to help decorate dollhouses with, to an amazing mom who is head over heels for her husband and son. It was such an honor to capture all of these moments.
We started the day at Natalie’s parent’s house. I think the most endearing part of this beginning was watching her dad continue to decorate the house out of sheer nervousness. And yes I got a photo of that because it was such a moment. Watching her mom help her with dress and sister help her with her shoes is something I imagined from the minute I was asked to photograph her wedding, but it was surreal none-the-less.
After the first look at the bride’s Aunt’s house (who happens to be the hostess with the mostess, thank you!) we headed to the venue for the sweetest ceremony ever. By this time their little boy had gotten used to the big white dress and was ready to walk his daddy down the aisle. Natalie and Tyler’s dear friend married them making it even more meaningful.
Now the best part – the dance floor. The band did not give the guests a reason to sit down, it was that amazing. It was actually impossible to sit down if you ask me. I was dancing along with my camera. The only time we took a break from the amazing music was during the speeches. I don’t always remember speeches, but I do remember the MOH and sister Nicole’s speech. I don’t remember the words but the feeling behind it was fierce, powerful and a speech only a close sister could write. The whole day was filled with family, friends and a perfect moment in time. We love you Natalie and Tyler!
Congratulations you two. It was a day that will always be written on our hearts.
