Saturday evening, I had the best time with Nathalia and Luke at Goodale Park for their engagement Session! They will marry at The Westin in downtown Columbus and I couldn’t be more excited for their wedding!! Nathalia is beautiful inside and out and Luke has a special charm about him accompanied by a great sense of humor, I felt like all of us laughed the entire time!
When I first met Nathalia, I could have talked to her forever, we just had SO much in common! Nathalia enjoys cooking, learning about different cultures and traveling! Luke also shares Nathalia’s passion for fitness! One day, Nathalia sent me a photo of Luke reading the bridal guide I had sent them…it was at that moment, he became my favorite groom, haha! Their wedding at my favorite venue, the Westin Great Southern Columbus and with a Catholic ceremony!! The moment Nathalia described her wedding to me as blush with gold accents, I just knew we had an instant bond! lol
While at Marietta College, Nathalia met Luke…he was a football assistant coach and she was in her last year. Luke was moving to Texas in January and Nathalia knew she would never see him again. She decided to send him a text message, from a friend’s phone, asking if he’d be out that night. They met up, talked and danced for a while. It was meant to be! Luke ended up getting a job in Columbus a couple months later! He proposed at Genoa Park in August. Nathalia’s Mom was came to visit for the weekend and he waited for her to be there so he could get down on one knee! He hired even a photographer to capture the moment. He tells me he had her ring designed especially for her! Nathalia and Luke are just so perfect together!!
I absolutely adore these two and I can’t wait to share a few of my favorites from their session! I am beyond excited for their wedding day!
