Scenic Views and Comfort Foods The art of wedding planning, because that’s really what it is, shouldn’t be vague. Every wedding is different, because the two people you’re celebrating are unique! Their wedding details and every other component should be unique as well, and Ali and Josh definitely added their personal taste (pun intended) to […]

A Timeless Wedding at Natirar If I had to choose my favorite part of the wedding planning process with my couples, I think it would be getting to know them during their engagement session. There are so many things going on for couples planning their wedding. Some of it is daunting, some of it is […]

Madison Hotel wedding with blue wedding details

When I first heard from Kerri, shortly after her engagement, I remembered her immediately from Courtney and Calvin’s wedding in 2017. Kerri was one of Courtney’s bridesmaids, and it was so great to be reunited with these two girls (including two other awesome bridesmaids from both weddings!) We planned for their late fall engagement at […]

A Woohoo Wedding Day Danielle and Nick are married! This seems a bit of a shock only because when I first spoke with Danielle back in 2017, her wedding day seemed so far away! She was my first booking for 2019, and somehow the day has already come and gone! It sure left it’s mark […]

Love & Marriage Love and marriage…go together like a horse and carriage. Yes, I’ve been singing this classic Frank Sinatra song over and over, ever since writing this title. However annoying that has been, I feel like it is definitely an appropriate title for Carolyn and Taylor’s wedding blog post. Why? Carolyn and Taylor’s reverend […]

Spring Wedding at the Mansion at Natirar

Joyful Spring Wedding at Natirar Emily and Scott’s wedding was absolutely stunning! However, that’s not what makes this wedding day so magical. What did make it so magical? Let’s start with the fact that they both got each other two cards (and thought they were so clever!). Emily’s crinkle-nose when she smiles. The moment Dad […]

Christmas Bride at Natirar When I pulled up to Natirar for my very last wedding of 2018, I was greeted by the twinkling lights settled on the brick wall, leading up to the mansion. The front door was adorned with festive wreaths, and upon entering the marble foyer, a warm glow from the candles¬†and sprawling […]

classic and elegant estate wedding at natirar

A Beautiful, Blustery Fall Wedding Saturday greeted us with gorgeous light and glowing trees. I texted Laura, my bride, to wish her a happy wedding day and her response was “mind the wind!” No kidding! It was a super windy day in the 200 acre wood that makes up Natirar Park! It’s no secret that […]

Married at Natirar While I felt like I got to know Ali and Matt pretty well at their engagement session, I learned so much more about them on their wedding day! When I first walked into Natirar’s main hall, I saw all kinds of one-of-a-kind signs that Ali, the DIY Natirar bride that she is, […]
