Marsha & Mike | Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Weddings
Well, well, well....you've seen a snippet here and there and I've been dying to show you the rest of Marsha & Mike's wedding day so sound the trumpets and bang the drums. I give you one of our most spectacular weddings this year. Marsha & Mike were such a delight to work with. Marsha and I were in touch quite a bit before the wedding and I was thrilled every time I got to hear a little tidbit about the big day (the day she texted me a photo of her gown I about melted). I will tell you, the day was huge. I mean...the day was gargantuan, ginormous and larger than life, as you'll see in the photos below. But what I'm really hoping you see is the gentle and quiet love that Marsha and Mike have for each other. Mike, ever watchful of where Marsha was during the evening, stole my heart when I saw the photo John got of him tearing up the moment he saw Marsha as she walked out to walk down that aisle straight to him. If he wasn't right next to Marsha for the rest of the night his eyes were on her. And Marsha...a smile as big as the world, but never bigger than when she was looking at Mike. I know brides are so happy on their wedding day but Marsha truly just glowed. Every part of her just swayed and vibrated with the energy of the day and she never looked happier than when she was holding Mike's hand. Make sure to check out that beautiful smile of hers that John got when she finally got on the altar and beamed at Mike. It was pure excitement and elation in that look.
We were able to spend both Friday and Saturday with Marsha, Mike and their families. I love that. Being a fly on a wall with a camera for both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding really completes the story. We got to take in all the love, hugs, excitement and of course, a few tears (which always makes my job so easy ;-))
Big shout out to Bonnie Walker of Bonnie Walker Events for such incredible design and decor. It was dazzling for sure! Also to Nathan and his gang over at Hens and Chicks...you rocked it, again, of course. ;-)
