The stained glass windows of St. Hedwig were glowing as they let in the perfect ray of sunshine. It was warm. It was inviting. We were celebrating love of course, so there was so much happiness filling the air. And there they were, hand-in-hand. They were beaming with the biggest smiles on their faces. Everyone was clapping. Nicole and Ryan had finally become one! They were walking down the aisle after being announced Mr. & Mrs. There was the occasional wave to their loved ones. And a couple of cheers to match the audience. Their happiness and joy was contagious! We were almost worried that it was all too good to be true. Such a perfect moment. We just LOVE the expressions on their faces here! Don’t you?!
If we’re being honest, this is one of the best moments of any wedding day. The ceremony is the “hardest” part. You feel all the nerves leading up to your “I Do’s” especially because all eyes are on you! Once you officially tie the knot and take your first steps as a married couple, it’s pretty magical. And that’s why we’re reliving this moment from Nicole and Ryan’s wedding day. Magical is the perfect word to describe what it was for them. We could see all their worries about the day thus far completely slip away. They were finally married. And if you ask us that’s one of the things we adore about these two. We could tell how simply happy they are together. How amazing it was for them to finally be husband and wife. We can even go as far to say that in that moment, all that mattered to them was marrying each other. Such a beautiful thing! Nicole and Ryan smile so much when they are together that our cheeks started hurting from matching their energy. It’s so amazing to watch them because they share a sophisticated, easy-going love. They are more reserved as a whole, but that doesn’t stop them from showing one another some lovin’.
Nicole and Ryan, thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful wedding day. We loved sharing the joy you felt as you said your vows to each other and took your first steps as Mr. & Mrs. Your happiness is contagious. We felt the love between you two and the love from your friends and family all day long! And our hearts are still happy thinking about it. We wish you both and your beautiful baby girl a lifetime of laughter, love, and endless happiness. Cheers to your forever and a happy almost one year anniversary!
