Natalie, despite being an avid lover of the color red (partly because of her alma mater USC), decided to go a different route with her wedding. She had been going to too many red themed weddings lately and she wanted to do something different! Instead she embraced her other passion, snow and skiing! Natalie has been a volunteer with Big Bear's ski patrol since 2004 and upon meeting Natalie, Eric quickly joined her in this hobby. Using this theme loosely as their inspiration, they chose a blue, white and brown color palette.
I was even more excited when they selected Damion and Julie Hamilton of Damion Hamilton Photography for their photographers. I had met Damion and Julie in 2008 and was eager for an opportunity to work with them on a wedding. I knew that their style and personalities would be a perfect fit for Natalie and Eric's wedding. They were even enthusiastic when Natalie and Eric requested driving all the way up to the snow for their engagement shoot!
Gorgeous setting, right? Well feast your eyes on the rest of their big day. I hope you enjoy all the details designed for this wonderful couple!
