Frelinghuysen Arboretum Wedding: Nathalie & Tim

She sat in a pin tucked chair with her chin in her mama’s hands….and she cried. Happy tears. I can’t believe it’s here tears. Whew, this is all happening really really fast tears. But above all, they were today I’m marrying the love of my life tears. In a room in her childhood home, she cried like she loves: without holding back. And when the tears were dry, what remained was love.

He stood at the front of an aisle as she walked in on her mama’s arm….and he smiled. A happy smile. An I can’t believe she’s really mine smile. A whew, I want her to get to me really really fast smile. But above all, it was an I’m about to marry the love of my life smile. In front of their friends and family, he smiled like he loves: with his whole heart. And when the vows were said and the party was over….

What remained was love.

Married: Nathalie & Tim

Nathalie & Tim were married on a perfect October day with just the right mix of soft, gray skies and golden light peeking out at the very end. It was a day when Nathalie was missing her dad very much, and yet love remained. His love for her, their families love for the both of them, and her love for Tim. Love was the theme of the day. And we were just the ones lucky enough to be there to capture it. Nathalie & Tim we are so grateful for you guys and your friendship and our mutual love of quoting Will Ferrel movies. I’m so thankful for Tiffany & Frank and Francie & Chris for introducing us to you, and I feel like one big reunion dinner is in order for all of us once things settle down! :) My hope is that you will love like this always….with your whole heart, without holding back, and always with a love that remains.

So much love,
