Nate and Chelsea | A Garden Wedding | Appel Inn

Nate and Chelsea

When Nate and Chelsea asked me to photograph their wedding, I was over the moon, to say the least. I was so excited for them and looking forward to a trip back east for the wedding. The greenery alone is enough to make any photographer drool (especially one who is used to the dry California hillsides) and the venue was absolutely gorgeous. The Appel Inn was the PERFECT backdrop for Nate and Chelsea’s wedding!

Before I flew out for the wedding, I wanted to get to know them a little better, so I asked a few questions (at the bottom of this post). Their answers are absolutely adorable, if you ask me. I’m so excited to see where life takes them and I’m looking forward to the journeys they will travel together.
