When I first met Karen and Jerry, it was very obvious that their priorities for their wedding were for it to be very family-centered and beautiful, and they just wanted to celebrate a beautiful time with the most special people in their lives. Their wedding perfectly matched their personalities. It was fun, laid-back, and elegant yet comfortable. Just being around the bride and groom, you felt like part of their family. Here are a few favorites from their beautiful day at Natirar in the spring.

I had the pleasure of finally working with the team of Beauty on Location. They were the perfect match for this already gorgeous bridal party.
Karen incorporated some family tradition by having a more traditional Chinese dress for later in the reception.
Watch out where you leave your slippers, they might just get stolen by a beautiful flower girl.
A dad’s job is never done – helping his sons with the finishing touches.
Feeling stressed on your wedding day? Not this girl, she’s got her zen on.
There are so many beautiful portrait locations at Natirar in the spring.
When you have three sons, you basically have built-in groomsmen.
It was the perfect spring day for portraits around the mansion until…
…it started to POUR rain just before the ceremony, bringing us inside this beautifully set up room. Shout out to the staff at the Mansion and the floral team at Jardiniere who made it all look as if it was Plan A.
Lil Everest, the bride’s nephew, was the youngest in attendance and was a champ during the ceremony.
I love seeing the engagement sign in book in all of its glory.
Despite the skies opening up during the ceremony, the sun came right back out and the view cleared.
More of Jardiniere handiwork! Mike and his team set up these beautiful lights in the reception hall, giving it a cozy, romantic feel.
The silver lining to a rainy spring day – epic smokey clouds later on!
Most brides are not a fan of surprises on their wedding day, but this one was a big exception. A close friend of the bride and member of the band made a special appearance unbeknownst to her. I’d say it was a huge hit.
Throwing flower petals is harder than it looks.
Who needs traditional cake toppers when you have superheroes?
Eventually the rhythm is gonna get you.
