Chris and Natalie’s big fat Greek and Filipino wedding
I’m so happy to share the lovely wedding of Chris and Natalie. This was one epically fun wedding! The wedding was at Lake Natoma Inn in Folsom, CA and it was a fantastic day from start to finish! It was amazing meeting all of Chris and Natalie’s crazy awesome friends and family. I kinda have a crush on all of them. I was with Natalie and her friends as they all got ready for the day.
Natalie seriously has a smile to light up a room! She made everything so much fun and photographing her was a joy.
Um, hello? Natalie? You are ADORABLE by the way.
Geoff was with Chris and they guys in the as they had a relaxing time getting ready. I LOVE the yellow socks that all of the men wore. Did I mention that yellow is my new favorite wedding color? So sunshine-y and happy!
What wedding prep would be complete without a couple games of Rock Band!?
Geoff took the guys to the American River Bike Trail for photos. I love how he got the cyclist in this one.
Time to seal the deal! The ceremony was super sweet and full of smiles and laughs. Chris and Natalie both had wonderful expressions throughout.
This photo of them walking down the aisle is perfect. The faces are just SO them.
It was hard for Natalie NOT to steal the show. She’s so cute. Chris you are one lucky hubby!
The reception was also at the Inn. They did a great job setting the stage for what was to be an awesome party.
We made an engagement session guestbook showcasing Chris and Natalie’s adorable downtown engagement session.
They had an awesome grande entrance!
Can’t let the kids have all the fun.
I am always such a huge fan of toasts. They are always emotional and honest and I love hearing all the funny and heartfelt stories about the bride and groom. This was such a sweet moment between Natalie and her parents.
For Chris and Natalie, family is such a HUGE part of their lives. That’s how they knew they were perfect for one another!
This whole wedding was a tear-jerker! I was practically bawling when Natalie’s mom and little sister came and joined her and her dad for the father-daughter dance. Family is a powerful bond.
I had a lot of favorite moments that day but I think this one takes the cake! Chris’s family is Greek so OF COURSE there had to be some Greek dancing. It was soooo much fun!
Chris and Natalie, we can’t thank you enough for welcoming us into your lives and your families! We feel so lucky to have gotten to know you two through photography. You are an amazing couple of people and we know there is nothing but happiness in your future! Opa!
