What was supposed to be a stormy Saturday, turned into a beautiful day for Nicole and Kolton’s wedding! I had a lot of fun with Nicole and Kolton, their families and friends and the wonderful vendors I got to work with. The day ran so smoothly from details to the end of the night but my favorite part was Nicole’s first look with her dad. Dads are always a little nervous when I put them in place, usually either quiet or fidgety and while her Dad was nervous, he also talked with me about how he couldn’t believe his baby girl was getting married and that he’d be walking her down the aisle so soon. It reminded me so much of the close bond I have with my own father. Once I brought Nicole down to see her Dad, I braced myself because I knew it would be an emotional first look. They hugged and cried and she gave him a special tie to let him know that she’d always be his little girl.
Once all the bridesmaid and groomsmen pictures were done, I snuck off to photograph the happy couple open gifts from each other. Nicole and Kolton know each other so incredibly well that they got each other the same exact gift! Apple watches for the win! The rest of the day went off without a hitch (despite the rain clouds) and I’m so glad I was the one they trusted to capture it all. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. True!
