Natalie had her back to her father. He walked to her for their father and daughter’s first look. As soon as she and her father embraced, her mother rounded the corner. She and her father presented Natalie with a gift. They gave her a new ring to wear on her wedding day. Inside the ring were four jewels. One jewel was Natalie’s birthstone, and one represented her late grandmother’s birthstone. It was a very special and emotional moment for their family.
The forecast was calling for a rainy day. Mother Nature only allowed a few sprinkles to fall; and by Natalie and Steven’s ceremony time, the sunshine was shining. Natalie and Steven‘s first pictures as husband and wife were gorgeous as the sun dropped behind the mountains with a colorful golden hour glow. Whether the day had been raining or sunshine, the love between Natalie and Stephen could not have been dampened. They both had smiles spread across their faces all day long. No one could have ruined their mood. You can view their engagement session here.
Natalie and Steven, it was such a pleasure to be with you all on your wedding day and to capture this momentous event. Farmer J and I could not stop bragging about your dream wedding and your wonderful family and friends. The love your family and friends have for you is obvious! There is no doubt that every guest at your wedding loves you with their whole heart. This is because you two have so much love for each other and for your family and friends. It was apparent that both of you put others first and yourselves second. Others can take lessons from you two and your relationship. It was wonderful to get to see you two interact with each other and with your guests on your wedding day. I am so excited for you to see some of my many (many!) favorites from your wedding day! I hope you treasure these for a lifetime and they continue to be passed down for generations.
