The Avalon Inn Wedding with Natasha and Michael

After Natasha and Michael’s engagement session I knew that their wedding day would be amazing and I was absolutely right.  They are delightfully quirky and I absolutely LOVE that in my clients.  I already knew I adored them but when one of Natasha’s wedding gifts ended up being a picture from Grumpy Old Men (also one from the Golden Girls) I knew that we were kindred spirits.  I always get the side eye when I list that as one of my favorite movies but it’s true.  I even recited part of the movie for one of my public speaking finals.  When I discovered they loved that movie like I did, I knew they were my people.

All day these two were a dream to work with.  So calm and they didn’t let the small things… or even the big things. Like the fact that a roof leak meant that emergency repairs needed to be made to their church.  In the sanctuary.  Complete with scaffolding that would not be moved for their wedding.  I was able to keep it out of most of their images but when I told them I demanded a photo of them with it after the ceremony they humored me and I guarantee that will be one of the photos that will be laughed about for years to come.  They really embraced one of the things I say to all of my clients – at the end of the day you’re marrying one another.  The rest is just stuff.

Thank you both so much for trusting me with your day and allowing me to capture it for you!

    Flat Shoes for Women

    The level pump or artful dance level is presently an absolute necessity have thing in each lady’s closet. Because of Audrey Hepburn, Gisele and Kate Moss, the ballet dancer or level pumps is a genuine design explanation. Be that as it may, back in the 1500s it was the men, and not ladies, that were wearing these ultra-comfortable ‘pompes’.
