~ A New Orleans wedding at Race and Religious ~
One time last year on a day in December two really cool things happened;
Henry and I were featured on Buzzfeed and Nat emailed me asking if I would shoot her wedding in New Orleans.
I was more excited about Nat’s email.
I knew from the beginning that this wedding would be special, but not until meeting them did I really realize just how much.
These two have something that I think most people search for but few actually find.
They are going to be that 80yr old couple you see still holding hands and giddy in love.
They knew almost instantly that they were the ones for each other when they first met.
They tried to get married at Toronto Pearson International Airport
before Cliff flew back to the states after knowing each other for not that long.
You can’t get married at Pearson though, so a few years later and at the start of an 18 month around the world adventure
they decided on a place that is near and dear to them and in my opinion one of the greatest cities in the world, New Orleans.
I could really write an entire essay on how wonderful I think these two are.
Solid, genuine, kind, creative, adventurous, funny, beautiful inside and out, madly and deeply in love, free spirited, salt of the earth people.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me be the one to capture your love.
This is Nat and Cliff’s story.
“If you have someone that you think is ‘the one,’ don’t just sort of think in your ordinary mind, ‘Okay, let’s pick a date. Let’s plan this and make a party and get married.’ Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world, and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land in JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.”
