Nicole & David - Finally Celebrating with Family and Friends!
June 26th 2021
If this beautiful couples looks vaguely familiar to you it's because I photographed their intimate ceremony last year during the Covid-19 Pandemic. If you missed their original blog post, be sure to head on over to that one too, it's titled "A Date too Perfect to Postpone"! They have an awesome backstory regarding their original date and the photos are absolutely gorgeous!
Although Nicole and David were officially married last year on 6/20/2020 they did not want to compromise celebrating with all the people they hold near and dear, so around their one year anniversary that's what they did, yay! So on June 26th this year David was finally able to see his bride in the dress she originally chose. It was also the day they were finally able to safely have all of their loved ones there to witness with their eyes, ears and hearts the pledge of love they made to each other. I can imagine that now both dates hold special places in their hearts for different reasons. As a photographer it was an absolute honor and pleasure to be there to capture both!
Handwritten vows are my favorite!
Isn't Nicole the epitome of grace? The dress she chose was absolute perfection on her!
I don't think I'll ever get enough of Daddies and their little girls on their wedding day!
Their beautiful smiles say it all!
Nicole and her sweet sisters, Sarah and Amy.
I take this shot almost every single wedding and it will always be a favorite of mine, you'll never be too old for a smooch from Mom and Dad!
Groom Getting Ready
David's best man Rui helping him look extra dapper for his day.
David is all smiles with his his proud parents by his side.
Having your sister by your side on your wedding day is also essential and it's even better if she's in your wedding party as a "Groomsmaid"!
What a great looking group!
The moment you finally get to kiss your Bride!
You gotta love a bubble exit with a mustang getaway!
And they're off!!! David's reaction to Nicole's Dad hitting the gas is priceless and everyone had a good chuckle watching them hightail it out of the church parking lot!
The Happy Couple and their Awesome Bridal Party!
You can't help, but scream and shout for this perfect pair!
Can we all just be in awe of the back of Nicole's dress for a minute, it is absolutely swoon worthy, as is she!
The photo below is probably my favorite of the night! It's got "and they lived happily ever after" written all over it!
Smiles were found everywhere!
There was no shortage of fun at this reception!
Cheers from the happy couple!
