Brenden and Nicole have been together for years. When Bren popped the question (someone usually throws in a “finally” at this part) they decided not to wait any longer and planned a beautiful wedding in under a year! We knew their wedding day had the potential to be cold and snowy so we chose Downtown Canton for their engagement photos in case we couldn’t get any outdoor photos on their Big Day!
So cute, right?! These getting ready photos are some of my favorite. They chose not to do a first look so letters written to each other was the way to go! Nicole did a beautiful first look with her Father. It melted my heart!
Now, I’ve heard of the nervous giggles but these were my absolute favorite! I don’t think there was a single tear shed because we were all too busy cracking up! If you know this couple, you wouldn’t be surprised at all.
We got the opportunity to stay at the chapel for a few minutes after guests were dismissed. Check out that stained glass!! Since it was rainy and chilly, we didn’t do too many outdoor photos (luckily, we captured plenty of the city at their engagement session) so we were able to use the Bliss Lofts Foyer for some stylish, winter-themed bridal portraits!
The rest of the night was a PARTY. The dance floor stayed full, the bar cart stayed crowded, and everyone had an amazing time. When my contracted time was over I ended up keeping a single camera out, grabbing a drink, and partying with everyone to celebrate this awesome couple. I put the camera away before the after party. (:
Congratulations, Nikki and Brendan! Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your day. My favorite part of the day was the end where Nicole came up and hugged me and said the whole day was better than she could have ever hoped!
