Gordon and Natalia’s story began at a wellness store during closing hours. Gordon and his friend had just finished their gym workout and they needed to make this quick stop. As Gordon was getting ready to leave the store, Natalia walked in from a modeling shoot. She looked stunning! Gordon says, “That was the moment that Natalia stole his heart.” Unbeknownst to him, Natalia did not speak any English at this time and so he asked his friend to help him translate because Gordon wanted to get her information. They were able to exchange their contact information and decided to meet up. For their first date, they went shooting at a shooting range and afterward went to Starbucks to talk. Using Google Translate, it helped them to communicate with one another and it wasn’t long for them to express that they both had experienced love at first sight!

 

 

Natalia loves Gordons patience. He know’s how to take care of her without trying too hard and she always feels happy around him. Even though she didn’t understand English when she first met him she would still give him her undivided attention because the sound of his voice comforted her. Gordon loves how Natalia smiles. She has a the most precious gift of being able to soothe Gordon in any situation. Just by being with him, she gives him unrelenting strength. She always makes sure he is taken care of in the best way that she knows how and he truly loves her for just being her.

 

On their wedding day, Gordon had the happiest look on his face as he watched Natalia walking toward him. He was beaming at her and she was filled with love looking up the aisle into her future with the man she loves. For their wedding, Gordon and Natalia wanted the modern rustic look and they were able to achieve this by incorporating classic old world elements, with modern design in a garden setting.

 

Additionally, they had the Marine Corps Honor Guard adorn their ceremony to make it even more special! I heard several of Gordon + Natalia’s guests gasping in awe about how beautiful their wedding day was!

 

Congratulations Natalia + Gordon!
