The heavy August heat had diminished, the autumn chilly air not yet arriving – the morning was beautiful. Max met Will and his guys at Will’s childhood home as they started getting ready. I headed off at met Natascha and her ladies at the Brookstreet hotel where I was excitedly greeted by her mother. I was super excited to met her as she as been following along with my work online.
Not a quiet morning in the bridal suite, as the girls laughed and snacked as they got their hair done; while back and forth finishing up little details in the ballroom downstairs. William and his gents were at the church preparing for what as to come, as the ladies hopped into the limo and Natascha and her father climbed into a gorgeous old while Excalibur.
Their ceremony was stunning and cultural, in Will’s family’s Coptic Orthodox church. I think my favourite part, witty as she is, is when Natascha opened her paper to say her vows and the long folded paper trailed to the floor. Kidding of course, she handed this paper to her mother as she opened her real vows.
We whisked them off to where Max & I had our own wedding portraits taken, so it was a sweet moment for us to go back there at about the same time in the same gorgeous sunlight glow behind the willow trees. These two and their highly energetic families danced the night away at Brookstreet. It was SO much fun seeing all of the Arabic dancing!
