Nathan and Josie :: Married

Weddings stand out in my mind for different reasons. Nathan and Josie’s wedding stands out as being THE happiest, most joy-filled occasions I have ever had the honor of attending. I don’t think Nathan could have smiled any bigger, or that Josie could have beamed any brighter. Their families looked on with laughter and tears and the bliss that can only be described as they did in their handmade signs “lovely glorious bliss”. I still tear up when John Legend’s “All of Me” starts playing on my Pandora station.

The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful. Nathan’s grandparents and a teacher from his high school teamed up to perform the ceremony. Again… lots of laughter and many tears. The festivities took place at the St. Paul Rodeo grounds. Amazing what you can do with a bull pen. The guests enjoyed a chili bar and cheesecake for desert. Dancing… laughing… and a sparkler finale…

Here are a few of my favorite moments from the day…

  They chose to not do a first look before the ceremony… This is Nathan waiting anxiously to see her for the first time…
  … and when he sees her…
