This wedding will always hold such a special place in my heart. It was the first wedding I photographed after Milly was born, and I saw everything in a different light. Being a mother seems to make life richer in so many ways, but I didn’t realize how much it would affect how I viewed wedding days! I cried several times, especially when I saw Nicole interact with her Dad. His speech at the reception especially got to me, as he talked about how he and Christian will always be the two most important men in Nicole’s life, and how they were responsible for much of her happiness. Nicole is incredibly close with her parents, her sister and her brother. To see them all rejoice and cry and sing and dance together as they celebrated this milestone with her reminded me of the importance of family, and how sweet and possible it is to stay close through the years if you work hard at your relationships and love one another well. They all made such a lasting impression on me, and it made me deeply happy to think that we are only at the beginning of this amazing journey as a family.
Christian fit perfectly into Nicole’s family, and Nicole fit perfectly into Christian’s as well. This couple is fun, y’all! They are goofy and fun-loving. They take the serious things in life seriously, but they aren’t afraid to laugh and have fun and be full of joy along the way. That’s the good stuff. They most certainly will have a sweet and strong marriage, because the Lord is at the center of their lives and their hearts, and now their marriage. What a privilege it was to photograph this sweet day! Congratulations, Nicole and Christian!
