Liz and Jack first met in 2015 through a mutual friend who had suggested they meet. After their very first date at Sweet Basil’s, the two felt a spark immediately, connecting on their ease of conversation and the sheer excitement of meeting someone new.
After leaving more dates with sore cheeks from smiling, Liz and Jack began to spend more time together, filling their days with favorite activities, like spontaneous picnics in Central Park; a night at home cooking under candlelight, music and wine; and traveling to new places with friends.
The couple soon realized that no matter the activity, they just enjoyed doing things together, and wanted to make it official.
While on vacation in December, Liz and Jack decided on forever and the two became engaged. They quickly planned a beautiful wedding at Natirar, the perfect backdrop for their sophisticated romance.
Here are some of my favorites from their special day:
This is how bride prep should be – getting all of your best friends together to laugh about the best times you’ve had together.
Liz chose to forego the large wedding party and have her daughter, Susan, as her maid of honor.
Ever hear of RBF? – If not, you may want to type it into Google 😉 – Jack truly has RLF (Resting Laugh Face). He is always smiling and it really is contagious!
At the start of the day, I was nervous that we wouldn’t be able to fully capture all of Natirar’s beautiful grounds since fog levels were quite high. By the time we were ready for portraits, the fog lifted and allowed us to grab some really sweet shots, like this one!
In addition to sharing their love for one another, Liz and Jack will now share four children together, pictured below.
Jack was escorted down the aisle by his two daughters, while Liz proudly walked down the aisle with her son.
Jack’s niece officiated the ceremony, adding a sweet, personal touch to the day.
Natirar’s beautiful reception space made the perfect backdrop for Liz and Jack’s romantic wedding.
Susan, Liz’s daughter, made a beautiful toast to the newlyweds, incorporating fun family stories to give guests a laugh.
