Dreamy Orthodox Summer Wedding | Nathalie & Bobby | Virginia Wedding Photographer
You could feel it
Sunlight streamed through the windows gently cascading over the beautiful bride as she walked down the aisle. Everyone smiled and the groom couldn’t contain his joy. Surrounded by the saints and their family, the two take hands and turn to their forever. It is a truly wonderful thing when a wedding day is entirely focused on just that: The Wedding. Back when I met Nathalie & Bobby for the first time I instantly fell in love! (And not just because they were the most awesome human beings for trudging through the snow with me for their engagement photos) but because of who they are. Nathalie is so warm and loving and makes you feel just that. Bobby is always smiling and even more so when he holds his dear bride in his arms. As a strong advocate for true love, I was filled with nothing but pure joy throughout this whole day for this wonderful couple. Nathalie said it best as we all piled into Victoria’s car and she was just reeling from the past half hour that changed her life (yes 5 people one car. It made quite the selfie) “There was just something about being in the church that created this wonderful sense of calm.” And no truer words could be said. It was like God was right there in that church blessing the union with peace and love. I felt it, the couple felt it and judging by the serene looks on their parents faces, they felt it too.
Nothing says party like a Greek reception. It was so fun to watch these two cut loose with all their friends and family and let their heritage shine through! This was my first time actually experiencing a Greek reception and I must say, it was so much fun! There was so much energy and joy surrounded by wonderful tradition. It was absolutely perfect and to be honest, totally fitting.
Nathalie & Bobby, I am so glad we met and I was able to experience all of these wonderful moments with you on your wedding day. It was truly a day worth remembering. All the best!
