MEET MONICA

Personal

For Brides

It was a gorgeous September day, a little over a year since I first met Nicole at a Starbucks close to home for our first meeting together. Finally their wedding day was here and I was so excited and honored to be there to capture it and celebrate Nicole & Brian getting married!

Their love story started over 10 years ago when they met in high school and although life led them both on different paths for a little bit, their paths crossed again and this time, the timing was right and something Nicole told me at our first meeting was that Brian’s own dad said he knew it was destined to be!

Nicole and Brian’s beautiful wedding day at the Venue at Orchard View Farm was as incredible as their relationship and I about ugly cried so many times especially when Nicole and her son Decon had a First Look together and I’m just going to say as a biased boy mama, this First Look is hands down one of my favorites EVER.

Carefully picked details, touching bouquet charms, a handkerchief that belonged to the bride’s grandmother and the cutest bridal party ever. This wedding was so much fun and I had a BLAST (pun intended) all the way through.

Now here’s some of my absolute favorites from this beautiful fall wedding!

 This has to be in the top 5 favorite wedding moments for me. There’s nothing sweeter than the bond between a Mama and her baby boy.
