Nathalie and Larry’s long awaited wedding day arrived on what might have been the most beautiful day of October 2020!  We were so excited to have the opportunity to celebrate with them, and loved watching all the carefully arranged details come together in the most beautiful way.  Natalie chose a color palette of blue and sage for her wedding day, and did the most wonderful job of echoing that color palette in all the wedding decor, attire and details that she provided.  Nathalie chose to provide her own silk flowers, and her bouquet beautifully matched the arrangement she had made for the wedding arch, and even her invitations.  I have caught myself thinking about our trip to Skyline Drive and the beautiful sights we saw there, many times since the big day.  I don’t think I have ever caught the mountains looking so gloriously full of fall color.  We were certainly not alone at our overlook (it was SO crowded!) but Nathalie and Larry put their faith in me to make sure the photos looked like we were all alone on the mountaintop and I am so grateful to them for their trust and good humor!  It was a day full of special moments, special gifts, lots of celebrating and so much love!  I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of this incredible wedding day…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
