I need you all to get ready for this gallery. Like, for reals, prepare yourself to meet Natalie + Nick because they are two of the most amazing people. Ever.
The first time I spoke on the phone with this dynamic duo, I was on a road trip with my boyfriend. I hung up the phone, was bouncing up in down in my seat and squealing several octaves higher than normal “ohmygah they are the COOLEST people ever and this wedding is going to be awesome and the food is going to be awesome and the venue is going to be awesome and I am so so so so so happy that they picked meeeeee!!!!!” To which he replied, “yeah, it seems like it from what I heard. And please tell me that when you said “it’s like a match made in Heaven” that you were talking about the bride & groom…”
Friends, Natalie & Nick are definitely a match made in Heaven. But at that moment, I wasn’t talking about the bride & groom. I was talking about us being a match made in photographer Heaven. Because I just knew in the 30 minute convo with them that they were my kind of people. They’re the kind of people who have so much Joy in life that it is contagious. Plus they have a pretty epic ‘How They Met’ story. Which I am totally stealing their words because I cannot do it justice…
There was an instant connection between us the first time we met at Polyphonic Spree rehearsal. Maybe it was how cool Nick looked with his long hair and seafoam green Jazzmaster. Or maybe it was how graceful and elegant Natalie looked as she hit herself in the face with her microphone while singing. Whatever it was, it was a feeling that couldn’t be ignored. And thanks to a little help from some of our friends, we became the unstoppable, albeit clumsy, duo we are today.
See? See what I mean? Don’t you just love them already & you haven’t even seen the pics!
On May 1, 2015, in an intimate backyard wedding full of magic and merriment, these two wonderful people stood before their friends & family. They shared their hopes & dreams for their future and made their pledges to do this crazy thing we call Life together with Love and Joy.
Congratulations Natalie + Nick! Here’s to a million more days of you two being an amazing & dynamic duo!!!
A huge ‘Thank you!’ to my Associate Photographer, Julie, for all of your hard work & helping me document this wonderful day! You’re the best!!!
