It’s #WeddingWednesday and we are so ready to celebrate by highlighting a very special couple that have touched our hearts immensely! Typically we like to start off our blog posts by stating our thoughts about the special couple that we have had the pleasure of working with and their union but alas we have stumbled upon the most beautifully written excerpt that perfectly encapsulates their love story and who are we to re-imagine such a masterpiece?! Get comfy, give it a read and then enjoy some of the most magical wedding day photos ever. You can literally feel the warmth radiating from these images! We feel so lucky to have been there to capture it all and we can’t even begin to comprehend the journey that these two are in for. We will be there cheering them on all the way…

We began our story after meeting online in January 2016 and hilarity immediately ensued. Our first date was at an ice cream shop in Brooklyn. Nikki, just recently moving to Brooklyn to escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, thought there was only one Ample Hill Creamery location and ended up at the wrong one. After realizing the snafu (via a series of very confused text messages), we successfully met and Ethan remembers vividly how fast his heart was racing when a gorgeous, stylish Nikki walked through the door! From that moment we have not been able to get enough of each other, going on 5 more dates in the next two weeks. Nikki knew this would be something special after our spontaneous third date where we enjoyed brunch and a long walk around Dumbo, Brooklyn which fittingly saw us get caught in the rain. While Nikki remembers being sopping wet with her makeup running and still feeling like the most beautiful girl to Ethan (which is still how he makes her feel today), Ethan remembers not having any clue that her makeup was running because he was too busy smiling like an idiot at her while hoping that their walk would never end.

What we love most about each other is our ability to openly and honestly communicate; because of that, we work well as a team, deeply respect each other and have come to learn that when the going gets tough we can unflinchingly rely on one another. We have an unshakeable deep and loving bond and are thrilled to unite together for life.

Our adventures have taken us all over the globe, through leaking roofs and career pitfalls, into two apartments, and (barely) through two trips to Ikea. We’ve been to Paris, Spain, Nice, Cannes, Cancun, Copenhagen, Costa Rica, Reno, San Francisco, and so many more places – but to this day we talk about how unbelievably lucky we were to both be in Brooklyn in January 2016…
