I have to start out by saying that I’m so blessed to know Noel and Bill! How have I been so lucky to have such amazing couples in my life?! Literally, I’m so grateful right now!
Noel and Bill are officially MARRIED, and their intimate wedding at Normandy Farm last weekend was GORGEOUS! This was such a special wedding for me to be apart of because I have known Noel for a couple years now through my sister, Rachel, who was also in the wedding! ANNNDD I’m SO glad that I have been able to get to know Noel and Bill even more over the past eight months as they planned their special day!
Meeting all of the people at their wedding that mean the most to them was definitely a highlight of the day for me! No matter where I turned, their family and friends were there helping set up the reception space, transitioning the ceremony from outdoors to indoors, and making sure Noel and Bill’s day was perfect in every way!
Allllssooo, even though it was wet outside that didn’t stop the two of them from getting AMAZING photos! Goodness, these two are the best! I love when my couples are willing to do anything for the shot! You’ll see what I’m talking about below! 🙂
AHH! Noel and Bill’s first look was the sweetest!! Thankfully, the rain gave us a break, and we were able to have their first look outside! Bill’s reaction to seeing Noel for the first time was just the sweetest, and he couldn’t keep his eyes off of her! In that moment, all of their butterflies and nerves that naturally come with a wedding day completely went away! The love they share is rare, and was so amazing to witness! Goodness, I LOVE first looks so much!
Even though they weren’t able to have the ceremony outside due to the rain, thank goodness Normandy Farm has such a beautiful reception space! To be honest, it would have been great to have their wedding outdoors, in the gardens, but all that these two were concerned about were becoming husband and wife! It didn’t matter if that happened outdoors or inside – the JOY on their faces as they walked down the aisle after being announced is PROOF of that!
Their reception was the sweetest, especially Noel and Bill’s first dance! I watched the entire time, and they locked eyes during the entire dance! The rest of the night was spent dancing with their family and friends – many of whom have AMAZING dancing moves! You know who you are! 😉 They also had a caricature artist at their wedding reception! Their guests were able to go home with a caricature of themselves! I have never seen this before at a wedding, and I think it’s the best idea ever!
Noel and Bill – thank you SO much for allowing me to be apart of your special day! You planned everything so beautifully! I cannot wait to see what’s in store for you both! Thank goodness, you’re only a-hop-and-a-skip away from where my sister lives so I can come visit!! 🙂 Congratulations you two!
When you sneak out during the reception for a rainy/night shot, I PROMISE it will ALWAYS be worth it!
