Nate and I got married on Friday, April 25th, 2014 on a bright and sunny day which was sandwiched in between a 7 day forecast of cold and rain. It was the most beautiful, flawless and loving day that I’ve ever experienced. I know a lot of brides probably say that, but for a bride who actually hated being a bride, (I’ll admit it) our wedding was the complete opposite of what the planning process had been…instead it was calm, collected and perfect in every way. I know as a creative, I’m supposed to tell you that I loved planning every last detail down until it all was perfectly curated, but the truth is I was always more interested in being Nate’s wife rather than in having the perfect wedding.
But when the morning of our wedding arrived, I woke up with a sort of calm in me that truthfully I didn’t even know I had. Everything felt right, everything felt perfect and as we went through the day, everything fell into place just as we had always imagined it would. Our pastor gave the most heartwarming and authentic ceremony, friends and family flew in from around the country and together, we celebrated into the next day. It was complete and utter perfection and I’m so excited to be able to share the photos below. Our photographer captured so many special moments between Nate and I, with our family and friends, and of our wonderful venues.
I know I’m a little late to the game in posting this, but from the bottom of our hearts, a huge and sincere thank you to all of you who contributed to our special day through your love and support. Five months later, we’re still celebrating the fact that we are lucky enough to get to spend our lives together.
