A Fall Wedding at Natirar
Sandwiched between a string of rain storms this fall, the clouds parted just long enough for Sara and Sam’s outdoor wedding at the Mansion at Natirar.
When Sara and Sam saw the mansion and the view that went along with Natirar, they knew this would be their venue for their wedding day. The rolling hills of Natirar Park made the perfect backdrop for Sam’s first look with Sara. It was certainly one of the sweetest moments of the day. Sam’s reaction to seeing his beautiful wife was priceless. It was tears and laughter all bundled into one. The day was the perfect combination of emotions, joy and sentiment.
Sam is such a sweet person, and romantic at heart! From the beginning of the day, the girls were greeted with cards each personally written by the groom. Right before getting dressed, the girls opened their cards together, each reading a personalized greeting from him. It was one of the most thoughtful details I have seen on a wedding day.
Sam’s niece and nephew made the day even livelier with their spunky personalities and exuberant participation in the festivities. I always had backup with our flower girl and her polaroid camera, making sure she could capture all the details and our ring bearer took his job very seriously, all the while handling his big sister’s demands. The two were precious.
The ceremony began with the intimate circle of friends and family during the Ketubah signing in the bridal suite, while guests took their seats, the endless views of Natirar to entertain them. Under the chuppah, Sara and Sam shared their vows, exchanged their rings and were declared husband and wife.
Cocktail hour shared the same views as the ceremony, and as the sun set, the guests were escorted into a flower filled, candlelit ballroom off the main portion of the mansion. Clara Jordan’s band welcomed guests into what would be a party filled entertaining evening. One of my favorite parts of the Jewish tradition is the hora, which definitely kicks the party off in the most exhilarating way!
Heartfelt toasts my the couple’s siblings carried the room into sentimental memories about the bride and the groom, and the couple’s story up to this moment, while they dined on Natirar’s delicious cuisine. Following dinner, it was nothing but dancing and laughing before the bride and groom snuck off to cut their cake in the corner. Not only was the cake cutting an utter mess, but the red velvet insides left a crime scene of a wedding cake. We said our farewells as the newlyweds continued their momentous evening on the dance floor with their loved ones.
Congratulations, Sara and Sam! Your wedding was nothing short of joy and beauty and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to capture it!
