Take one look through Natalie and Matt’s wedding photos and you will immediately know that this is a couple who loves to love! I absolutely adore all the moments captured by photographer extraordinaire Fer Juaristi, because not only is the couple simply glowing but the families couldn’t be prouder, as evidenced in their great big hugs and mile-wide-smiles.
Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Natalie and Matt: Simple, classic, fun.
Junebug: What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day?
Natalie and Matt: We were engaged in Paris on the Pont des Arts. Fer was also there (disguised as a tourist) to catch the moment. The classic, romantic and artistic style of this experience inspired our wedding style from the Calais lace Cymbeline gown to the art gallery reception venue.
Junebug: Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding?
Natalie and Matt: Having a relaxed schedule and not trying to fit too much in. We decided against a receiving line so that we could make it to our cocktail hour and mingle with guests. It was a stress free day that flew by only because we were enjoying ourselves so much.
Junebug: What specifically drew you to Fer Juaristi and his imagery?
Natalie and Matt: Fers work is a unique blend of fashion, photojournalism and just gorgeous photos. His subtle ability to capture a special moment during your day or sometimes multiple moments in a single frame, is an incredible talent. On top of everything, he is an absolutely great guy to hang out with on your wedding day.
