When we met Joe and Nicole last year for their engagement session, we knew that their wedding was going to be full of joy and fun. And we weren’t wrong! This summer wedding was absolutely beautiful, full of love and ringing with laughter! While the size of their wedding and reception had to be changed, what didn’t change is the fact that these two were surrounded by people who love and care about them greatly.
While the bold orange florals and dark navy dresses perfectly accented the colors of their gorgeous summer wedding, it was the small things that showed their personalities and made us love their day so much. The first real portraits we took of them as husband and wife were with a few random young people who they met in the park and wanted photos with. They were so full of joy about being married that they wanted everyone to know and share in that joy…even total strangers in the park! Honestly, I don’t know that these two could ever actually meet a stranger! I think they make friends with just about everyone they meet! The laughs and antics continued all day as the bridal party photobombed Joe and Nicole’s portraits, and a sweet father-daughter dance changed into Twist & Shout by the Beatles halfway through. Joe and Nicole’s love of life and love for one another was evident throughout our entire time with them. The day ended with a special, private dance between the bride and groom while all their guests went to set up for their faux sparkler exit. This day not only showed the love between families of an amazing couple, but also an excitement for a marriage that Joe and Nicole were more than happy to start.
Joe and Nicole, we can’t imagine not knowing you both and your fun and engaging personalities. You all are just the best! We absolutely loved every bit of time with you and can’t wait until we can hang out again! We’ll have to plan a double date! We hope you enjoy your not so small wedding preview! 😉
