Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to introduce you to Natalie and Ronnie and their sunshine filled wedding at Huntington Harbour Bay Club from Wheeland Photography. Once Ronnie had proposed to Natalie, she knew she wanted a backless dress so booked in to have her tattoo completed in time for the big day. It look so gorgeous in her Stephen Yearick gown.
We knew each other as friends for a few years in the same circle of people before we started to date. He suggested we get dinner one night to catch up after a period of not seeing each other and the rest is history.
Our main them was Nautical. I love the ocean and Ronnie loves fishing and in our early days of dating we spent a lot of time out on his boat fishing.
Our wedding day flew by and was a wonderful whirlwind! The emotional moments leading up to walking down the aisle, the knot tying ceremony and the cake cutting were fond moments. I’m also grateful that my Grandmother (Mother’s mother) and Grandfather (Father’s father) were able to share this day with us. Both have passed since our wedding day.
As for DIY, I cut fabric swatches to have guests sign in lieu of a guestbook. The swatches will be sewn together to create a quilt….I’m very behind in completing this process. My Veil was a custom made gift from my mother.
Having a wedding planner really relieved a lot of the stress of the planning and the days events. All I had to do was show up. Also, choosing an excellent photographer made the memories last forever! We cannot thank Janet of Wheeland Photography enough!
People warned me, and it was sooooo true, try and stop and enjoy the day because it goes by so quickly.
How fabulous is Natalie and Ronnie’s wedding? I love the nautical theme (If you didn’t already know) and the colours are gorgeous! How beautiful does Natalie’s tattooed back look too in her wedding dress? Thank you to them both for sharing with Marry Me Ink today and to Wheeland Photography.
