Smooth Sailing Ahead Annapolis Wedding Photographer
I met Nikki and Austin last September and from the moment I met them, I knew they were going to be a blast. Did you miss their engagement session at the beach? They are the sweetest couple and on their wedding day they became a family of four. What fun to watch the love, not only between Austin and Nikki but between Austin and his girls and Nikki and the girls. It was incredible. I was so honored to be a part of it.
I always love to share a little about my bride and grooms when I share these blog peeks. So here is Nikki and Austin in their own words:
How did he pop the question?
On a Friday afternoon, Austin suggested a shopping trip to Nikki at the Outlets (What girl could say no?) “Innocently” missing the turn into the shopping center, Austin kept driving in the wrong direction as Nikki became quite frustrated with his driving abilities. When Austin turned onto an old country road, Nikki’s suspicion grew. After parking on Wye Island, Austin led Nikki through a corn field to the Holly Tree – the oldest living tree on the eastern shore (over 300 years old!) Sweetly, Austin set up a picnic under the tree while their favorite song was playing and asked Nikki to marry him. Nikki said yes through her sobs and the rest was history!
4 years and counting!
Nikki’s response: I love how comfortable and silly I can be around Austin. While we’ve been on some crazy adventures together, some of my favorite memories have been dancing around the house while cleaning or snuggling up to a movie on a rainy day. Austin makes the most mundane routines of life exciting and new.
Austin’s response: That’s easy. Her loving heart, endless optimism, and excitement for life!
I mean are you falling in love with them yet? Ok well maybe this will do it, Austin built the gorgeous arbor they married under from driftwood that he and Nikki found. Check out the message he carved for them. It will melt your heart.
Nikki and Austin, it was such an honor to photograph your day. I hope you love your blog peek!
