Dreamy Orthodox Summer Wedding – Nathalie & Bobby

Nathalie and Bobby met through their church, St. Mary Orthodox Church, where they got married in June. Nathalie knew of Bobby first – she would come home from college and sit with her mom in the back, while Bobby sat just a few rows up. Her mom always encouraged her to introduce herself, but she was nervous. In October of 2013, Nathalie and her mom went to the church’s yearly Dinner Dance at St. Luke’s Orthodox Church. That was the night that Nathalie and Bobby finally met, and it wasn’t without a few memorable moments – Bobby went up to Nathalie to introduce himself, but was unfortunately just a little bit clumsy, and spilled red wine everywhere! They talked for a little bit, but got too nervous to ask for the other’s phone number. A mutual friend made sure that they got each other’s phone numbers, and the rest is history.

Nathalie says that she knew that Bobby was the one because she never met anyone else who was so respectful, patient, kind, and warm. She says that he not only supports her in everything that she does, but knows how to put a smile on her face even in the most stressful of situations. Bobby says that he prides himself on making Nathalie into a Memphis Grizzies Fan! He loves that they both love to travel, and that he couldn’t have asked for a better traveling partner – someone he can have endless conversations with and that will laugh as his jokes.

On their wedding day, sunlight streamed through the windows gently cascading over Nathalie, the beautiful bride, as she walked down the aisle. Everyone smiled and the groom couldn’t contain his joy. Surrounded by the saints and their family, the two take hands and turn to their forever. It is a truly wonderful thing when a wedding day is entirely focused on just that: The Wedding.

Let’s Party! Nothing says party like a Greek reception. These two really cut loose with all their friends and family and let their heritage shine through! There was so much energy and joy surrounded by wonderful tradition.
