The Team Behind the Scenes:
Natalie and Eric held their jaw dropping gorgeous wedding ceremony at St. George’s Serbian Orthodox Church in San Diego. The church is a beautiful work of art, and above that, of course, a sacred setting where they were united in marriage. The ceremony was traditional and it’s powerful and humbling to remember that so many couples before them have been married in this same ceremony. I love how they stole glances at each other throughout the entire thing. It was really a beautiful moment.
Afterwards we hit Liberty Station for photos and ended up at their awesome reception space – Brick! So much time and effort went into the planning and coordination of this reception and it went off without a hitch thanks to one of my favs, Hannah – Hannah Smith Events. They even had an indoor s’mores bar provided by Hannah and her team which was a big hit. The food was delicious, Eric gave a toast that was so touching, remembering his late father, and speaking from the heart about his wife in front of everyone. The dance party was super fun. (You guys have some crazy fun friends!!) It was such a blast. I hope you guys had the most amazing night of your lives and that you enjoy re-living it through these photos. Love you both!
How cool is this? The inside of Natalie’s shoes could be her something blue. And they also have their names and date imprinted inside!
