The Couple: Natalie & Justin
Wedding Date: April 21, 2014
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: My husband plays trumpet in Michael Buble’s band, and I actually met him at a concert at the Oakland Colosseum in 2007. I thought he was quite charming, but we shared a few laughs and called it a night. We reconnected again a few years later when he was coming through my area again on tour, and asked me out on our first date. The rest is history…
What was the most amazing part of your day? The most amazing part of my day was our first dance. My husband is also a singer, so at his shows he always makes a point to sing our song, Come Rain or Come Shine, to me (and embarrass me!) in front of the crowd. We had not planned on doing any dancing at our wedding because of space concerns, but my heart jumped into my throat when I heard the first few chords of “Come Rain or Come Shine” over the speaker. He pulled me to my feet and sang the song in my ear as we danced. Just talking about it now puts butterflies in my stomach!
