We love Green Gables Wedding Estate. As wedding photographers the vintage feel, lush grounds and open-air concept really inspire us. Naz & Bobby chose Green Gables Wedding Estate for their October 20th, 2018 nuptials. The wedding estate was the perfect setting for the couples laid back yet elegant wedding. Naz & Bobby chose shades of blue with gold accents to compliment the peacock inspired palette. There were fun nods to the couples love for travel and golf throughout the wedding as well. Emry photographer Kaitlin loved photographing Bobby’s reaction to the surprise putting green Naz put together for him. Green Gables Wedding Estate has some of the most beautiful bridal and grooms suites and as wedding photographers we couldn’t get enough of the natural light pouring into the bridal suite, naturally we had to put the glowing bride into that gorgeous spilling light for some bridal portraits. The couple’s first look took place beneath the canopy of cascading tree branches, which has to be one of our favorite things about Green Gables. We also had to have a little bit of fun with the rustic hanging swing, so we took the couple over for some playful wedding portraits.
The reception was held in the gorgeous draped white tent. We loved how Naz & Bobby brought their wedding theme to life with the décor. There were so many personal touches to show off the couple’s personalities. The celebration continued into the evening as the couple and their guests danced the night away beneath the glimmering chandeliers of the wedding estate.
The Love Story…
It was a warm Tuesday night at Park and Rec in the hipster part of town. Naz was with her trivia team, Homeless or Hipster, where they were dominating as usual. She had asked a friend to join that night, and little did she know that he would not only show up, but also bring a few of his fellow engineering friends along. Bobby wasn’t sure why he had decided to come to Park and Rec this night. It was after his engineering meeting, and normally he would go home right after, but why not…it would probably be fun… He was introduced by his friend to this pretty girl, and sat down next to her, while she provided a correct trivia answer. Wow, this girl is smart! The more they chatted, the more he was blown away by her incredibly intoxicating personality. After trivia ended, they struck up a conversation about Dave Chappelle and Seinfeld as they played a game of corn hole. It was an instant connection. And by the end of the evening he left with her number. Not long after they started dating, Bobby found out he needed to get knee surgery. He wasn’t sure how that would affect their relationship, since he wouldn’t be able to walk around for a bit, and had a long recovery time ahead of him. However, that did not dissuade Naz in the least. She enjoyed every moment with him and was there to help him through that tough time. Over their years together, Bobby was able to get Naz to enjoy one of his favorite sports…golf. To this day they will often play on weekends, and watch the pros play in tournaments. Along with sharing a pastime of playing golf, they enjoy going to the zoo, watching their favorite shows together such as Game of Thrones and Fresh Off the Boat, and of course….they still go to trivia almost every week! And Bobby, in return, has endured Naz’s passion for traveling. Since their time together, Bobby and Naz have gone on countless adventures together. Starting with a road trip through Big Sur, they stopped by one of the most iconic bridges, Bixby Bridge, since Naz knew all about Bobby’s love for all things bridges. In addition, they have been to so many amazing places including Kauai, Portland, Vegas, Banff, Mexico, Montana, Chicago, Oahu, and even to 6 different European countries last year. In the past few years, they have also attended several weddings during their time together, and now are ready to embark on their own journey. Bobby asked Naz to marry him via a Words With Friends game, which he knew was her favorite game and had gotten him hooked onto. He spelled out the phrase “Oh Nazzy Will You Marry Me” in tiles placed across the board, and which even spelled correct words in every direction. He had sneakily gotten down on one knee as he had asked her to help him with a game he was having trouble with. Her response was an immediate YES!
