REAL WEDDINGS: Natalie & Justin // Nightsong


Rain, although wet, unwanted, and often times cold, brings life; it allows the flowers to grow. So it is with us; the rainy days of our lives can expand our souls, strengthen our roots, and nourish new life within us. The rain brings hope that beautiful things are to come.




It was a very rainy wedding day for Natalie and Justin. The expectation of a beautiful sunny outdoor wedding was unmet, but something more beautiful was in the making…

As Natalie made her way into the ceremony & reception tent, you could see it there in her eyes; the commitment to love Justin rain or shine. And as she locked eyes with Justin, it was as if they created their own little heaven on earth, as if no one else in the room, or even weather, existed. And within that one minute, the meaning of life was demonstrated so delicately: it’s all about love. Everything else will pass away, but love will remain. And it will be this strong and determined love that will get Natalie and Justin through the hard times, and it will be this same cherished and devoted love that will allow them to enjoy the more easy times in life.

Life doesn’t always turn out the way we plan, but if we have love, we’ll not only get through it, but it will be an adventure.

Just like Vivian Greene once said, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”

We absolutely fell in love with this amazing wedding party! Just from looking at the group photo above, you can’t help but smile. Dyanna Joy Photography beautifully captured the personalities and the love that radiated from this group of family and friends.

Nightsong rocked the night away with Natalie and Justin at Hedgerow Farm, a gorgeous horse farm located in Maryland. The dance floor was filled all night with the wedding party and guests! Nightsong even joined the guests on the dance floor for a dance-off with the groom. 🙂
