With each wedding venue Mike and Natalie toured, something was always missing. That’s when they realized the perfect location, that truly was a part of their story, was there all along. Slack Winery was where they shared so many laughs and maybe a few delicious glasses of wine when dating. On a perfect fall afternoon, Slack Winery at Woodlawn Estates was the most surreal backdrop for their Southern Maryland wedding. The classic rustic decor was beautifully accented with a unique color palette of royal blue, teal, guava, and coral.
Mike and Natalie are the type of people you meet and instantly want to be friends with them and join their church. Mike is collected, but carefree and fun, and Natalie is this gorgeous woman who’s smile and personality will totally turn your day around and make you want to dance. Together these two have this magnetic energy that’s brought together two sets of family and friends that are just as wonderful as them.
There were a lot of joyful tears shed and moments in silence praying for blessings over the day and their marriage. Every opportunity to really soak in the love, embrace the butterflies and hold tight to their parents, one last time before walking down the aisle, was welcomed.
The wedding day unfolded as you could only dream with the clouds covering the sky just when we needed for portraits and parting so the warmth of the sun could be felt as they exchanged vows and tied God’s knot. The entire wedding day was just as easy as loving these two beautiful people.
Mike and Natalie – What a beautiful experience it was to share in and be a part of your wedding day. Sending you hugs, prayers and the biggest thank you for trusting me in capturing your wedding day.
