OK–I’ve been holding onto this wedding for a few weeks because it’s just that special. I am in love with this couple. I am in love with their wedding day. I am in love with their story….and after reading this you will be too!
So meet Jessica & Nick. A.K.A….the cutest couple ever. So here’s their super romantic love story. Jessica & Nick have been together for about 15 months and are madly in love. As such, they decided to book a fabulous trip to Europe to spend some time together. After booking their trip, all of a sudden the topic of marriage started popping up here and there. Late one night, Nick said “So hey you special gorgeous awesome kick-ass lady, let’s get married and stuff” (OK…I may have paraphrased here a teensy bit). So they decided that while they were on vacation they would do some ring shopping. How romantical!!
But then that’s when it gets really innnnneresting. While hanging out one day, they decided, nope…we’re going ring shopping. Right. Now. How terribly awful it was that it was on a Sunday and the only jeweler open on Sunday is Tiffany. Poor Jessica! So they slummed at Tif’s for an afternoon and picked out one snazzy humdinger of a gorgeous ring.
Nope–doesn’t end there folks. After slipping that sparkler on, Jessica & Nick had the most stupendous idea: what if, instead of celebrating their engagement in Europe, they actually celebrated their new marriage?? Ohhhhhh yes! I said it! So you guessed it: Jessica & Nick decided to have the loveliest, most intimate and mostest meaningful of all ceremonies the day they left to go to Europe. GAHHH!!!!! Can you take it?!?!
So, we showed up at the Mansions on Fifth at 10:30am, where John photographed Nick getting ready and I photographed Jessica. John said to me 3 times that Nick was so nervous. Not bad nervous; awesome love nervous. 😉 And it was so clear that he was right because Nick was a bundle of nerves until the very second he saw Jessica round that bend and walk into the chapel (conveniently located inside the hotel ;-)) Vows were recited, tears were shed and not just a few giggles, smiles and looks of endearing love. Then we got to head out and about to take some photos of this lovely couple. We finished just in time to deliver them back to the Mansions for a brunch with all the guests that attended their ceremony. Did I mention that “all the guests” were Jessica’s and Nick’s parents?? That’s right….it was so intimate, so incredibly romantic. It was simply perfect.
Make sure to notice the photo with the cutout heart in the shirt and the sewn-in heart on Jessica’s dress. That was her something blue and it just so happen to come from her dad’s shirt. That’s right…can we get a big collective “Awwwwwwww!!!!!”
Later that afternoon, their parents dropped them off at the airport for what I’m sure was way more of a special trip than they thought it would ever be when they first booked it! Now that’s how you honeymoon. 😉 Photos from their super-cool party/reception being held at the Hotel Monaco in August coming soon!
