OHHHHH Natalie and Daniel. How I adore this pair, their families and friends. They are silly, hilarious, sweet, genuine, and maybe the happiest duo I’ve ever seen. There were so many great moments from this day. I LOVED editing their wedding, because I got to look at Natalie’s HUGE smile the entire time. It’s infectious. On numerous accounts, I found myself grinning from ear to ear whilst toning. That made life easy for me.
Natalie and Daniel met and live in Oklahoma, but her family is western Nebraska, so they chose to get married in Lincoln, Nebraska. Their ceremony was at the beautiful St. Paul United Methodist Church and I think Natalie could have sprinted down the isle to see Daniel. The highlight of my day, and seemingly everyone else’s, is when Natalie’s grandpa showed up. Everything stopped, and the world revolved around him, and it was fantastic.
After their ceremony they were whisked away in a horse-drawn carriage and off to their reception they went. Their reception was nuts. There was so much dancing, so much laughing, so much air guitar and air drumming. Not gonna lie…I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to dance and hang with this group all night. They even did a good ol’ Midwestern small town tradition – auctioning off the garter.
Natalie and Daniel…congratulations! I’m sad you don’t live here, because you’re a RIOT to be around. Have a big, happy life!
Also – A HUGE shout-out to their family and family friends that were on decorating duty. You did it all yourselves, and it was STUNNING. I know what hard work that is, and you did it flawlessly.
