When Nikki and I met for the first time, I instantly liked her! I knew as we began talking about her wedding plans that her wedding would be absolutely amazing…and it was!
Nikki and AJ have many things…friendship, love, laughter and oh my goodness do they have serious style as well. Their wedding was gorgeous in every detail, with many little details that had personal meaning. There were little touches of them everywhere you turned. It was the type of wedding that photographers dream of capturing!
We began our day simultaneously spending time with the Bride and the Groom as they finished getting ready and prepared for the ceremony. We arrived, Starbucks in hand of course, to the salon while the girls got their hair done. From there we went to the barn and both parties got ready in perfect rooms for both. The bridal party room though, was one out of a little girl’s dreams. Heck, my current dreams. It was simply a gorgeous day. One of my favorite moments is always watching the Bride as she transforms from a woman on the verge of marriage into a Bride. That first time they see their self in a mirror always produces a big smile and that glow that comes with the day settles over them as gently as their veil.
Nikki and AJ’s ceremony at Enchanted Acers was exactly what she had pictured. Surrounded by many many family and friends, Nikki and AJ said their “I Do’s”. A sand ceremony, and a prayer before their first kiss as man and wife made it truly moving. Many happy tears were shed…and yes by the photographers too. We gathered the family and bridal party for photos and then spent some time with the newlyweds capturing their sweet and silly sides before going indoors as the reception was kicked off with toasts by the Maid of Honor/Bride’s sister and the Best Men, all 3 the Groom’s brothers. From dinner to cake, opening the dance floor, to celebrating the evening’s cool breeze and the flickering hanging lights and a bonfire outside….. the gathered family and friends truly came together to honor not only an amazing couple but the joining of two amazing families.
Congratulations Nikki & AJ!
