NATASHA AND GERALD - WEDDING
"...The unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight"
- 1 Peter 3:4
So, many of my photographer and wedding coordinator friends have encountered that one.....(dare I say it)......"crazy" bride? Sort of reminds you of something you've seen on the show, Bridezillas.
You're all too familiar with how the typical wedding day usually unfolds, right? Someone will be late, someone may have forgotten their tuxedo, the florist may have forgotten the bouquet, and let's not forget to mention the horrible instance when the couple has forgotten the wedding license. Urgency, panic, anxiousness, nervousness.....are all feelings to be expected during the "hustle and bustle" of a typical wedding day.
Well, Natasha was the total opposite of that. I had never experienced a bride like her before. I spent a considerable amount of time with her, behind the scenes, documenting the day as it unfolded. During that time, Natasha had a sense of calm tranquility...it was almost surreal. The day turned out to be a wet and cold one, but she wasn't sad or somber. Bridesmaids did their usual thing, cell phones were ringing, people knocking at the door....nothing seemed to phase Natasha. Not once did her smile turn to a frown. Perhaps, we could all learn a thing or two from Natasha. The small intricacies matter not, life is about enjoying the moments God allows us to share with each other. Best wishes to Natasha and Gerald on a life full of enjoyable moments! -Carlyn & Derrick
