My story with Nathalie goes back YEARS. I was actually her manager at a fun little casual restaurant called Chili's. We'd stayed in touch as Facebook friends, but I have to admit I was still a little surprised she wanted me to shoot her wedding - I mean, I was her boss!
But since Nathalie and I left Chili's, she's gone on to bigger things, like finding the love of her life while on vacation in Puerto Rico.
No really, she met Beau while on vacation with a bestie. Hello, GOALS.
And now Nathalie and Beau live in Hawaii and decided to have their wedding back "home" at the Addison, Boca Raton. Minutes before the girls left the hotel for the Addison, the skies opened up and it POURED. They've been planning this day for almost a year, and now minutes before the ceremony, everything was soaked, down to the petals on the aisle. But here's the thing about Florida - if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes.
So we waited, and we were HASHTAG BLESSED with a beautiful ceremony between the banyan trees and Nathalie got the wedding of her dreams. Here's their wedding story:
