Nathan and Christie: vintage love

Nathan and Christies wedding was awesome! The weather was superb, the people were amazing, and Nathan and Christie... well they are awesome! To tell you more about their awesome wedding today we have a special guest blogger!

She was an invited guest to the wedding and if I can be frank just a beautiful and wonderful person inside and out. She also happens to be my amazing girlfriend Kate!

Her first blog post!

Joel has an eye for capturing the best moments, finding the most beautiful angles and having the most incredible clients; I was literally in awe of Nathan and Christie from the moment I lay eyes on their engagement photos! The beach… the fire… the plaid…  these two were adorable! They seemed like best friends wrapped up in that forever kind of love…and I wanted to meet them! So naturally, when I was invited as a guest to their wedding this past summer, I was left bursting at the seams with excitement.

This couple was lovely! From the instant we were introduced, I almost felt like we had had been long time friends. Christie was sweet as can be and filled with lots of giggles; Nathan radiated with kindness and looked like he didn’t have a worry in the world. They’re just the type of people you can’t help but smile at when you’re around.

Their big day was nothing short of amazing with a stunning outdoor ceremony followed by an even more breathtaking reception at the Marshville Heritage Society. Christie’s background in art and design played out beautifully as she transformed an old rustic barn into the most perfect wedding venue.

So many little touches made their wedding personal: hand painted signs, homemade pies and cookies, ice cream personally scooped by the bride and groom, and a magical send of with sparklers… the details of their wedding truly represented their love for one another and their affection towards their family and friends.

They created a day filled with love, laughter and one heartwarming moment after another It was wonderful to watch how they both truly lived in the moment while showing their gratitude to everyone who came to be apart of their special day.

Nathan and Christie, you two are the perfect match; easy going, down to earth, filled with happiness and a sense of adventure! Your day was spectacular and your love for life and for each other is definitely the kind that gives me goose bumps because it’s so genuine.

Thank you for inviting me to celebrate your wedding with you!
