Walking up to a beach-side AirBnb in Port Clinton, Ohio, my sister and I could hear giggles of excitement from outside, when sweet Natalie came to the door to greet us with huge hugs! She was already a vision – even in her robe – and she led us over to her details which were organized perfectly. As the girls drank their mimosas around the balloon-filled room and finished their hairstyles, we took time to capture all the little details Natalie spent intentional time on. She is the kind of girl who truly cares about everything, making even the smallest of things the most beautiful. Her elegant taste in florals, invitations, shoes, and dress all showed exactly who she is: full of class and a true joy to be around!
After popping champagne, it was time to head over to the boys, where Taylon was getting ready with his groomsmen and cutest nephews a few miles away! The little ones were running around in suspenders making funny faces and laughing without a care in the world, and the guys were soaking up every second of the goofiness and enjoying beers. Taylon was very ready to see his bride, and his room was surrounded by his brothers and close friends who truly were there cheering him on all day long! It’s always the best when the guys are ready to have an amazing time and when the groom is always going out of his way to make everyone feel welcome!!
Next we traveled over to Twin Oast Brewing, where Natalie got in her Vogue-esque dress and all you could hear was everyone saying, “Wow!” Her dad came in for a special first look with his little girl, and we headed out to take portraits with her bridesmaids. We headed to a shaded spot for that dreamy lighting, and her bridesmaid, Nicole, shared that she was able to see Natalie’s silhouette from the back-lighting since she is blind! That was easily one of my favorite moments of the entire wedding day.
Once we carefully avoided Taylon and made sure Natalie was hidden for the ceremony, Ashley and I headed down for the ceremony which took place in front of a cascading waterfall surrounded in flower gardens. The love birds both teared up reading their personal vows to each other, explaining all the reasons why the other was forever, and it brought everyone to tears. They walked out of the aisle happily Mr. & Mrs. Molnar, and it was time for some photos.
Family portraits and full bridal party pictures followed, leaving some special moments for N&T to have bride & groom time! I couldn’t get enough of every photo they took and how sweet it was to see them as husband and wife. Once their formal photos were done, Natalie let her hair down and it was time to party!!
Each first dance, speech, and toast was all about how kind this couple is and how well they love the other. It was a testament of what love really looks like: unfailing commitment, out serving the other, and supporting your love through thick and thin. N&T shared looks during the speeches that looked like they came straight out of a movie (yes, I teared up)!
The food was delicious, my favorite being the bruschetta and meatball-on-a-stick appetizers simply because I thought the meatball wrapped in pasta was the coolest idea. I may have to steal that idea!!
Golden hour hit and we headed over to the meadow next to the reception tents to let the newly weds dance together and share some extra moments during sunset. I swear these two could be models!! They are so good at conveying their love in small touches and glances that MAKE the photos!
Finally, the shoes came off, and it was time for these two to smash cake in each others’ faces and dance the night away to early 2000s tunes with their guests. A fun sparkler send-off ended the night, and it genuinely was one of the most fun weddings I have ever been to. Every person there was so kind, and celebrating these two is the easiest thing you could ever do.
So here’s to the new Mr. & Mrs. Molnar! I am so lucky to know you both and watch you walk into this new season as a married couple. You are beautiful souls, and I cannot wait to watch you change the world simply by the way you love everyone around you! Congratulations!!
