What a fun wedding I have to share with you all today! I met Natalie and Ryan way back in 2009…it was the infancy of Katie O' Events and I was just starting to book weddings on a consistent basis. Natalie and Ryan were very busy and needed some help for their wedding day–they were booked for a June 2010 wedding in Lake George at the Inn at Erlowest and I was SO EXCITED to be on board!

I love this series of images by one of our favorite (and sparkly–he would kill me for saying so, but it's true) photographers, Elario Photography! Natalie looked gorgeous in her Jim Heljm gown from Lily Saratoga

This shot of Natalie and her parents, Linda and Steve, is so sweet. That's a proud father right there!

The color of the bridesmaids gowns was amazing. The perfect blue / green (turquoise?!)!Natalieryan 0179 Edit

And now our groom, Ryan, and his crew looking ever so debonaire! LOVE the yellow!

First dance as husband and wife! Natalie's brother, Tim, played the guitar and sang a Dave Matthews Band song for their first dance. It was pretty awesome.

Flash forward to June 2013 at Natalie's brother, Tim's wedding (a KOWE groom!!!)…a little sparkler (my term for baby) due in October! YAY!


I'm so lucky to have been able to get to know Natalie, Ryan and Natalie's family over the past few years and I was so honored when they asked me to be part of Tim's wedding day this June (more on that later…)! It's so exciting to see Natalie and Ryan's family grow and I couldn't be happier for them…and now I'm crying! AAH! Sparkle overload!

Hope you enjoyed this Wedding Wednesday post! Who wants to head up to Lake George now?!

Keep sparkling–
