meghan + nathaniel

It's no surprise that two such wonderful people planned an equally wonderful wedding day. Gracious to their guests, appreciative to their families, and completely in love with each other. I just can't say enough about the kindness and coolness of this couple. Each moment had meaning, and every spark of joy was savored. Photographing such a thought-out and thoughtful event is an experience that will stay with me for a long time.

Here's Meghan getting ready and looking stunning as always.

I recently attended a talk given by one of the country's top wedding photographers. He mentioned that he typically doesn't speak a word to people when he shoots an event. That obviously works well for him. However, I really enjoy getting to know people and allowing them to know me. Part of what I love about shooting weddings is moments like these...

It's impossible to take a bad photo of either of these two. Here's Nathaniel supporting that statement.

Their wedding style was glamorous and elegant, and I was drooling over the details. Those happy pink blooms were done by Perfect Petals, and the sparkly cake was created by The Frosted Pumpkin. If you check out the slideshow at the end of the post, you'll see Meghan's reaction when she saw how beautifully the reception area had been decorated.

The reception was held at the Sugarloaf Country Club, which had many great spots for photo-taking. They even let us play with a golf cart. Yay!

This shot was taken during a toast given by Meghan's dad. Completely chokes me up.

This next image makes my heart go pitter-patter.

I absolutely adore you two, and you're now a part of my photo family!

Stacey, I love them! You are my photographer for life! Your slideshow was better than anything a videographer could have put together. Thank you for being there on our special day, I wouldn't have had it any other way.
