We could not help but fall in love with Nick and Nikki. From the minute we met them, along with Nick’s mother Fran, we could tell how important family was to them. Nick is from a big Greek family, and they are all so close and care so deeply for one another. It was evident from our first 5 minutes together how Fran cared for Nikki (her first daughter-in-law) and Nikki adored her new mother by marriage. It is not every day that we get to see such a joyful union between two families who are fully accepting of one another and overjoyed to be together! What a blessing!
The day was perfect at one of our favorite venues in Arizona! Nikki was calm and ready… she was sure she was making the best decision of her life to marry Nick, and Nick was witty and funny, and all the wonderful things that make him such an amazing guy. I could go on and on about the way these two love each other. How a smile never leaves Nikki’s face when she is with Nick… how her eyes sparkle any time he’s close… and how at peace she seems when she is in his arms. Or how Nick cant help but brag about how he married the most beautiful girl in the world, the way he watches her when she dances, and how he flirts by making fun of her quite often. Their love is so evident. And so wonderful for a dramatic and feminine photographer like myself to witness (Yes, in case you haven’t figured it out already, Andrew is NOT writing this post! Ha!) :) They are perfect together. Instead of going on and on, I will let these photos speak for themselves… and I guarantee they will.
Here are a few of our favorites from Nick + Nikki’s beautiful wedding day. Enjoy! :) -EJ
