Garden Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Photographer Jamie Lucido

Excited to share a sneak peek of Kathryn and Natan’s beautiful wedding last weekend!  This gorgeous day was filled with personal touches- starting with the venue.  Her grandparent’s front yard was transformed into a beautiful ceremony and reception site, and when I learned this was also where Kathryn’s Mother and Father were married, and that Natan’s parents were also married on their family property, it made the day feel even more magical.

The chuppah was draped in a family heirloom crochet blanket, and adorned with greenery by Lily Greenthumbs, with pops of blue and orange.  The wedding party was dressed in shades of blue, and tears of joy were flowing when Kathryn came down the aisle.  The entire day was filled with such charm, and a strong sense of family tradition.   From the calm beginning of the day at the Bride’s childhood home, to the revelry at the reception, I think its fair to say that everyone in attendance felt a joy in their hearts to see these two become Man and Wife.

It would have been easy to fill this blog with beautiful details of the day (there were a ton!), but what I want to spotlight are the people.  Kathryn and Natan are both family service professionals, their dedication and compassion towards others is so apparent, and their love of family came shining through during every portion of the day.  It was my honor to document such a special day in their lives.   Congratulations, Kathryn and Natan!  #shemeshedhermatch
