These two are a great couple. They have known each other since high school in Austin, Texas, where they grew up together. It is this background -- their history -- that is cause for them to know in the depths of their hearts that they share a love that will last until the end of their days!
Plus, they just have fun together. Wait to you see the photos of them dancing. They are a great match.
Robinswood House, where the ceremony and celebration took place, is such an historic site, with a wealth of places for romantic photos.
The patio was beautifully decorated. Simple and sweet.
Once everyone was in position for the procession, Neil Hubbard piped us all in. In recognition of Serena's heritage, it was so fitting and thrilling. There is nothing like the sound of bagpipes resounding in a wooded glen.
Serena happily entered on her father's arm.
The ceremony began just before dusk. It is a magically time. Settled under the trees, it was a perfect setting for a wedding.
After each vow Serena and Nathaniel made to each other, a ribbon was draped over their arms by a loved one. The two were joined right hand to right hand and left hand to left hand, creating a figure eight, the shape of eternal love. Seven promises, seven ribbons.
Married, the couple celebrated with a kiss!
And Neil piped the newlyweds down the aisle.
On to the reception. By then, the sun had set. It was an absolutely gorgeous September eve: perfectly comfortable for sitting outside and enjoying the evening.
After dinner, the bride and groom moved from table to table to receive well wishes and enjoy conversation.
Time for the cake cutting and cupcake choices. Yummy!
For this wedding, you definitely wanted to have your dancing shoes on. First, Serena and her father did a dance they have done for years.
Then, it was time for Nathaniel and his mother to take the floor. This is a group that likes and knows how to dance.
That was just the warm up. Nathaniel and Serena were ready to cut a mean rug.
Look at them go!!!
Serena and Nathaniel have a great foundation for the life together as a married couple. I'm sure it will be one of dancing and great conversations and video challenges and fun.
Wishing them the very best!
Thanks especially to Aly Medina of La Luz Photography for sharing her work.
And to all those who contributed to making the wedding one to remember, including Neil Hubbard.
