Boxes of tulips at the altar. Out-of-state friends camping out in the distance. Ink and vintage lace. Tears of joy and genuine gazes. A sweet, sweet pooches in the wedding party. Wedding-dress cannonballs into the pool.
It was perfect.
Shooting Nikki and Derrick’s wedding felt like I snuck into a really good party with really good peeps in the country. They are two beautiful souls who laughed and giggled and sipped mimosas all the way to the wedding altar in their backyard. Here’s a peak into their special day, which my lovely friend Cindy helped me shoot. Enjoy.
