So by now, you guys are used to my two-years-late blog posts. Here's another one!
I've been wanting to share this wedding for so long now, and I'm so glad I'm finally getting to it!
Hope and Nathan got married almost exactly a month after James and I, so it was so sweet to be at their wedding as brand-newlyweds! James and our sweet friend Ellis assisted me at this wedding, and they were such a big help!
Hope and Nathan had a GORGEOUS fall wedding in a state park in Middle Tennessee.
It was also COLD. Like, 40 degrees. I don't know how Hope survived the day in her strapless dress, but she was stunning!
The leaves at this location were everything you dream of when you think of a fall wedding. SERIOUSLY. So dreamy.
This image of Hope's dad seeing her for the first time on her wedding day is still one of my favorites I've captured. So much emotion.
And her bridesmaids' reactions were so cute!
But I mean, obviously. Because this gal was GLOWING all day. How beautiful is she?!
So here is where I'll interject and probably lose a lot of friends, but I have to admit I know very little about Harry Potter. I mean, I started reading the books when I was in elementary school and I really loved them, but then I got to one that was just a little too long and intimidating for my ten-year-old self, and I just never picked them up again.
I know, I know. And I'm SORRY. But I'm just bein' honest.
Anyways, Harry Potter is super important to these two, and even played a part in their engagement (which I will definitely have a blog post about at some point, because they were adorable) and in their wedding!
Here's Nathan's "Head Boy" pin that Hope got for him to wear on their big day.
Hope was such a radiant bride, and this ceremony was so sweet.
Nathan's dad officiated, which made the emotion so raw and beautiful.
Also, as you'll see below, he work a HOGWARTS ROBE. I told you, these two are super into Harry Potter. It was awesome, so unique, and so THEM– everything a wedding should be!
Almost 1.5 years later and I'm still not over the leaves on these trees.
More of those Harry Potter details I mentioned! And that beautiful cake!
Hope and Nathan were such a fun and down-to-earth couple and I loved being a part of this day!
Thanks for trusting me to capture these memories, Mr. and Mrs. Powell, and I hope married life is the best adventure for you two!
