“Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.”
― Elinor Glyn
Blue skies, a slight breeze and endless sun; the perfect combination for a beach wedding. Natalie and her girls got ready for the day at a gorgeous beach house just blocks from the ocean. Natalie, a hair dresser, looked breathtaking with her perfectly pinned back blonde hair topped with a jeweled hair piece. Her dress was the most wonderful combination of beach simplicity topped with just enough jewels to make it unbelievably classy.
Guests were asked to leave their shoes at the beach entrance as they gathered for the ceremony. A simple set up, with a wooden arbor and white flowers. Beach goers turned their chairs and craned their necks to get a view of the beautiful bride. Ryan, a historically known tough guy, shed a tear as the breathtaking Natalie walked towards him.
This reception took place at The Windrift Hotel, Avalon’s most coveted wedding location. Guests enjoyed indoor and outdoor spaces, the room laced in a nautical theme. The speeches were heartwarming and truly showed how loved this couple is. The special dances always get me and this wedding was no exception. Natalie teared up as she shared her dance with her father and then the dancing continued on. This group knows how to party, especially with the music skills from DJ Freez.
We stole away the couple for a sunset session, Ryan scooping up his new bride and taking a quick walk in the water.
This day was perfect from start to finish and we couldn’t have asked for a more fun couple! Thank-you for choosing us to be a part of your special day!
