I knew when Naomi reached out to me about her and Patrick’s Wedding and started describing her wedding theme- that their wedding at Chestnut Ridge would be one of kind, but little did I know the treat I was in for. Prepare yourselves to venture into the wonderful world of Harry Potter. Naomi and Patrick are the ultimate Harry Potter fans- potterheads according to google and Naomi decided why not theme their wedding after one of their favorite magical worlds. The color palette for their wedding was truly unique and represented all the different Hogwarts Houses- Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. On paper you might be tempted to think that these colors would not work together, but seeing them in person and how beautiful they looked with the vibrant colors of fall was breathtaking. Instead of having a regular table seating chart at their reception, they had a “sorting hat,” and Naomi took the time to painstakingly sort all of their guests into the various Hogwarts Houses.
Enough about the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter though… witnessing Naomi and Patrick and the way they love each other was more beautiful than any unique wedding theme. Naomi is one of those people who walks into a room and immediately lights it up with her vibrancy, joy, and laughter. There were many moments throughout their day where I observed Patrick watching her in wonder with a smile on his face, it’s plain to see that these two souls bring so much joy to each other. Their wedding had lots of dress twirling (Naomi), tears (Patrick), and best of all good just some good old fashion love. Naomi & Patrick- thank you for letting me capture the magic of your day!
