Formal elegant real wedding with navy blue bridesmaids

Mar 10, 2014 | Weddings
There's nothing better than starting off the week with an elegant real wedding. The navy blue groom's suit and the navy bridesmaids dresses make this beautiful real wedding from Michael Radford Photography formal yet classic. And a ferris wheel?! Amazing! Such a sense of fun for the wedding guests and bride and groom... From the bride, Natasha: "I met Christian for the first time when his family moved into the house next door to mine. He became fast friends with my brother and soon, he was a constant presence at my house. We were friends in high school and cared a lot for each other but never dated. Once we both graduated, we went off to our prospective colleges and lost contact with each other for over six years. In the summer of 2010, my parents had a party in which they invited Christian’s entire family. It was at that party that we reconnected and our lives were never the same since that day. We spent quite a bit of time just catching up on the last six years and realized almost immediately that our relationship was more than just a friendship.  Being with Christian was so natural and we fell in love quickly. Two years later, in August, both of our families (already close friends from being neighbors) embarked on a road trip to Boulder, Colorado to support Christian in his first half Ironman. Little did I know, he had more than his Ironman on his mind as the day after his race, he proposed to me while visiting the Delicate Arch in Arches National Park." 007789-R1-004 Michael Radford Photography 007795-R1-013 Michael Radford Photography Bride and groom Michael Radford Photography DSC_0983 Michael Radford Photography 007791-R1-009 Michael Radford Photography Our wedding venue offered the perfect mix of nature and elegance for us. And on the day-of, it was the little details that have remained with me, Christian’s expression when he saw me for the first time in my wedding dress, the feeling of my hand slipped in his as he lead me to begin our first dance (Then by Brad Paisley), the beautiful sentiments from my father’s toast and those of Christian’s two brothers and my two best friends, my little sister’s blessing of the meal, wearing the earrings that my maternal grandmother had given me that were once her mother’s, a pearl ring from my paternal grandmother who passed away that summer, the bracelets borrowed from my mother, my dad’s face as he put my hand in Christian’s at the altar…We could not ask for a more perfect day.  007791-R1-012 Michael Radford Photography 007791-R1-015 Michael Radford Photography Navy blue wedding suit Michael Radford Photography 007793-R1-002 Michael Radford Photography "The groomsmen walked out to Ben Harper’s Forever, the bridesmaid’s processed out to Life in Technicolor (Instrumental) by Coldplay, and I walked down to A Thousand Years by The Piano Guys. The ceremony was a perfect blend of laughter, emotion, and love, and took place under a giant oak tree. Christian and I exchanged letters that we wrote that morning and put them in a wooden box with a bottle of fine wine from the year we started dating. We locked the box with the promise to one another that if ever we came to a crossroads in our relationship or a time of difficulty that was seemingly insurmountable, we would open the box, have the wine and read the love letters we wrote to each other the morning of our wedding day. This would be a reminder of our love and how we felt on this day. Once we exchanged our vows and rings, the feeling as we turned to face our friends and family was like nothing either of us had ever experienced. The love and support was truly immeasurable."

Everything from the lit up path made up of mason jars, to the candy buffet, to the thank you cards/menus on each person’s plate, we could not have done without them. Every guest received a candied apple (a favorite of the groom) and the candy buffet was filled with our favorite sweets in our wedding colors (navy blue, light peach/blush, and gold). It really felt like the union of two families that day as our family and friends celebrated with us and with each other."
