Natalie and Cody are such inspiring, free spirits. Their wedding took place on the day that would be known as the strongest summer storm in Washington state history. After a hot summer that brought drought to much of the west coast, it rained harder than I have ever seen it rain in my entire life during their ceremony, and coincidentally during a speech that contained a bunch of river, ocean, and rain analogies. It was simply unforgettable.
Normally you would think a downpour would be a total bummer at an outdoor wedding, but being the nature lovers they are, the bride and groom greeted the storm like an old friend. Mother nature’s voice was just so fitting at such a beautiful, purely eco-friendly and organic wedding. Natalie danced barefoot in the rain all night until her feet were muddied!
