Olivia & Nate | a BayPointe Woods Wedding


I adore so many things about Olivia and Nate, but my absolute favorites were their ADORABLE open mouth smiles (if you know me, you know that’s my thing too!) and also witnessing the beautiful connection between them! They have SO much fun together! They laugh, they play, they enjoy! Don’t get me started on the cuteness of whenever Nate took Olivia’s hand, you could feel the instant connection, his touch shouting “I love you! I love us! We are in this together!” I am not kidding when I say this either. It was such a gift to witness!

Every moment of this wedding day was full of so much JOY. Olivia and Nate are both absolutely HILARIOUS and FUN, so I knew their friends were going to be a great time. Their bridal party, family and friends were all so excited to be there celebrating themโ€ฆand they came to PARTY! There was so much energy from the morning all the way through the reception, and I had an absolute BLAST getting to document it all! Just take a scroll through the blog! Exciting energy all around!!

One of my favorite moments was when Olivia was sitting in a chair getting her hair done and she looks at me and says, “I can’t believe it’s here!” And I said, “What do you mean? The wedding day?” And she says, “Yes! All of it, it went so fast! We’ve been together for five years now! And I can’t believe it’s already here” I wish you all could have witnessed this conversations between us because you could hear the excitement and giddiness she was feeling. It was really beautiful and that is why I truly feel so blessed documenting weddings. I always pray our couples still find this eagerness, excitement, and joy throughout their entire marriage. I know that Olivia and Nate will continue to have this years down the road because of that special thing they have! You can just see it in their eyes and the intentional ways they make each other feel loved. It’s really something special and I could just go on and on, but I’ll stop here so you can enjoy the preview of Olivia and Nate’s wedding day! ๐Ÿ˜‰
