What an awesome wedding!!! Nicole and Mark throw a great party and we are so happy that we got to be a part of their big day! As soon as we arrived, we saw so many cute details. The flowers, the centerpieces, Nicole's bouquet, the boots, the cookies...and...the cake! Everything was just beautiful! It was difficult to decide where we wanted to start taking pictures. And, once we started, it was hard to stop.
Nicole and Mark planned their day well. We were able to get lots of pictures out of the way before the ceremony without the bride and groom seeing each other. That saved a ton of time after the ceremony. Speaking of the ceremony, Nicole and Mark's was awesome! The ceremony site at Tenroc Ranch is so unique. We've not seen a single ceremony site like this one. It looks like an amphitheater. There is a cute little creek running right in front of the stage area and every seat had a perfect view. It was the perfect setting for Nicole and Mark's wedding.
After the ceremony, we took some family pictures and then we had the chance to spend time with Nicole and Mark. They are such a cute and sweet couple! Elena and I loved taking pictures of them. And their pictures are some of favorites!
We got all of the serious picture taking stuff out of the way and then it was time to party. The toasts were such a great part of the evening. These toasts even included a short "show and tell" moment when Mark's groomsmen produced an incriminating picture of Mark. Everyone had a good laugh! Nicole and Mark then danced the night away with their friends and family. Most of their friends and family kept all of their clothes on. :-) The newlyweds left in a cloud of rose petals. It was perfect!
Nicole and Mark, thank you so much for choosing us to be your photographers. Thank you for being so kind and so fun. We are so happy for you both and wish you many years of love and happiness!
