I love intimate affairs! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE all sizes of weddings, but there’s just something about intimate, smaller weddings that makes my heart sing.
We did both video & photos for this beautiful couple. Nicole started the morning by getting hair & makeup done at the Madison Concourse Hotel. After she was all ready, we did a first look between her & Tommy on the beautiful staircase at the hotel. Then we walked to the capitol for some more photos of just the two of them, and then took an Uber to Gates of Heaven.
Um, can I just say that Gates of Heaven is freaking gorgeous?! The natural light inside there is just perfection. The ceremony was beautiful and afterwards they did a receiving line.
Weeks prior to the wedding day, Nicole told me she had a feeling that it would rain. I seriously thought she was crazy, but as the day drew near, guess what?! It rained. I guess I’ll be asking her more often about weather predictions, because she’s insanely correct.
After the ceremony, in between raindrops, we did wedding party photos and then more photos of just the couple outside and inside the gorgeous capitol. The other thing I love about intimate affairs is usually you’re not on a super tight time schedule and there’s just more time for photos and traveling to different locations.
Evan was my awesome videographer, and after the romantic photos we were done. The newly weds went on to have dinner with friends & family and then later a celebration in their hometown. I wish them both many more years of happiness and wedded bliss! :) Their video can be viewed after the photos!
