NATHANIEL + NATALIE | FALL WEDDING AT SWAN HARBOR FARM | MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
There are couples out there that take your breath away. Couples whose love is so substantial, whose connection is so direct, that you can't help but love their love. Nathaniel + Natalie are one of those couples and their wedding was one of the most gorgeous events I've ever photographed. Despite the torrential downpours we had the week of, the day peaked when these two were ready to say "I Do" as if God was smiling down and He put the world on pause, just for them.
I've known Nathaniel for a few years, enjoying sessions with his family for Christmas time. He has impeccable style, a dapperness if you will, and a strong confidence that gives him a natural comfort in front of the camera. His counter part in Natalie is spot on with her effortless beauty and contagious laugh. A total sweetheart, she folds into Nathaniel's arms like they're home.
Both being believers, they took time for a pre-ceremony prayer, where the chaotic excitement of the wedding was temporarily tuned out so they could lift up their future lives together to God. It was an incredible moment, knowing Nathaniel wanted to turn to see his Bride but kept himself focused forward, finding unity in just gracefully holding Natalie's hand. I love her smile as she can't help but glance at him!
I could go on for days about their style in choosing every detail of their day - the rich floral colors, Natalie's elegant lace gown, their rustic door ceremony backdrop, Nathaniel's vintage pocket watch - they all represent their romantic vision of the perfect wedding. And they made it clear they know how to party, with their family and friends pouring out on the dance floor as soon as the music kicked up!
As a photographer, this wedding was an absolute dream to be a part of with the abundance of love surrounding Nathaniel + Natalie the entire day. You love seeing your couples celebrated for how much they love each other and how devoted they are to the days ahead. I see such incredible things for their future. Congrats and cheers to Mr. + Mrs. Garrison!
