Carousel House Wedding: Natalie & Ryan

She sat in a blue room and felt her heart race a little faster. She swung from happy to excited to nervous...and then back again. And with each pass, her heart soared a little higher. Around her, her bridesmaids laughed and spun around the room in navy dresses. While the light caught flecks of gold and scattered them to the ceiling. Like stars in the night sky. Everything around her was suddenly somehow moving in fast forward and slow motion all at the same time. She heard herself say she was ready. And then everyone around her cheered. And right then, somehow, she already knew....this was the kind of day when magic happened.

He stood in front of a blue water backdrop, and felt his heart race a little faster. Later they would sit side by side on the swings, and walk up and down the beach together...and then back again. And with each pass, his heart would grow a little fuller. Around them, the most important people in the world would laugh and spin around the room on a carousel from the 1920s. While the light caught flecks of gold and scattered them to the ceiling. And the two of them would sit out together and stare up at the stars in the night sky. But right now everything was suddenly somehow moving in fast forward and slow motion. All at the same time. He heard himself say forever. And then everyone around them cheered. And right then, somehow, he already knew....

This was the kind of day, when magic happened.

Married: Natalie & Ryan

Natalie & Ryan were married on a day that was nothing short of pure magic at the Carousel House at Lighthouse Park. And the day came together even more perfectly and full of whimsy thanks to the tireless efforts of Lindsay Mastroianni and the whole Sixpence For Your Shoe team (Nicole, I'm giving a shout out to you!) who we absolutely ADORE!! These two were surrounded by love and light and hope for a beautiful life together. And more hugs than you can fit in a normal day...thankfully, this was most definitely not your normal day. Put it this way. Natalie actually works at Facebook, and if I could give their day a million likes I would. And I would do it all while wearing my signature Mark Zuckerberg hoodie. Natalie & Ryan, thank you guys SO much for having us there with you on your day. It is an honor that we will not soon forget. My hope is that you love like this always....with hearts that are full, and a life full of the kind of days that make you believe in magic.

So much love,
J&M
