Gem Theatre wedding
Natalie + Pat’s Gem Theatre wedding was so dreamy! Just look at these two?! It was the perfect day, with the sweetest couple and a dream team of vendors (I’m talking to you Jen House Design and Blue Water Kings!). I’m still obsessed with these chic bridesmad gowns from BHLDN and can we get a church clap for Natalie’s gown! Breathtaking! So chic and that BOW!
Their Armenian wedding ceremony at St. Sarkis was so beautiful and full of tradition. Afterward, we headed to Gem theatre and danced the night away. Nat + Pat thank you so much for having us! It’s been so great getting to know you both. Cheers! xo, e

Their wedding in three words
Best. Day. Ever.
Natalie’s favorite memory of the day:
The first dance. Being surrounding by our family and best friends, while we danced in a 100 year old theater to such an incredible band was a moment I’ll remember forever. A close second: the speeches by my dad, our MOH and best man. They couldn’t have been more perfect.
Pat’s favorite memory of the day:
The first look! We were both so excited and full of emotion, and seeing her for the first time is something I’ll never forget.
Wedding planning advice for newly engaged couples:
Consider doing a first look. We were afraid the first look would steal excitement from the moment I walked down the aisle, but that wasn’t the case at all! It gave us some time together before all the craziness of the day started and also allowed us to be part of almost the entire cocktail hour. Also, have Erin help you make a timeline for the day. I had no idea how long certain things would take, and she nailed it!
