Natalie + Tobias’ Wedding | 5.30.09

Natalie and Toby had the perfect wedding. Perfect weather, perfect timeline, perfect look. After getting ready at the historic Tidewater Inn, they hopped in my car for the ride to Oxford to do some private shots of themselves and await the arrival of their wedding party, which was coming along by bus later for more fun and casual pictures at picturesque town’s Strand. It was so fun working with them and they were game for just about anything I suggested. The light breeze blew Natalie’s veil and we caught that, sometime with a little help from a beach-goer pressed into being my assistant. When the wedding party arrived, everyone was happy to do some casual group shots walking along the Strand, celebrating with Natalie and Toby. Then it was on to the Talbot Country Club for their wedding ceremony and reception. Natalie thought of wonderful details for her wedding. From her unusual and fun Fortune Tellers (made by an artist at Etsy) used as place cards, to her saltwater taffy favors tucked inside cute pastel pink, yellow and green boxes, everything looked fabulous! One fun note, Toby’s best man, Brent, is the groom at my next wedding after this one. You can see Brent and Sarah sharing a private moment in a black and white shot included here! One gift Natalie and Toby gave themselves was the pre-wedding timeline which afforded them the TIME to really have fun with their bridal portraits and to experiment with different backgrounds and styles. That bit of planning was fabulous for me as a photographer since there was no rushing and all the bridal party shots were completed prior to the wedding, leaving only family shots for post-ceremony. So, Natalie and Toby were able to visit and relax during their cocktails, hardly missing a thing!
