I just loved every minute of Natalie and Michaels wedding in a cozy cabin in southern Ohio. Even though technically yes, this was considered a covid wedding…but a small intimate wedding with only their closest friends and family was ALWAYS the plan from the beginning. It felt like a family vacation with everyone hanging out playing cards and setting tables up with decorations for the reception while Natalie got ready upstairs. Her Dad walked her down the boardwalk to the cabin where she met Michael to become his wife by exchanging personal vowels, rings and cheers with a unity shot of bourbon.

If you know Michael and Natalie they wouldn’t have it any other way than having their dogs be apart of their special day. They stole the show during their first dance and as a dog lover myself my heart melted! For the reception portion of the celebration everyone was either out on the deck or watching football and enjoying walking tacos and savoring in the best caramel corn and old fashion mints that Michael’s mom made and of course you know I had to ask her for the recipe… she gladly shared it with me!

In the spirit of their love for bourbon Michale’s brother had a special jug made of it for them and even wax sealed off Mr. and Mrs. bottles for them to remember their day that even matched their wedding colors! Literally, worlds biggest CHEERS to this amazing couple I call my friends!

If you’re like me and can’t get enough of Eva and Reba, their puppies check out their engagement session where they make another appearance!
