Afterwards Nicole emailed saying, “Once we ended the call, Michael & I looked at each other and said “They’re perfect.” in unison. I will do my damnedest to find a way to have you at our wedding. Thank you both for being spectacular people and phenomenal photographers.”
Blessed. We couldn’t wait to meet these two firecrackers on their wedding day.
When we arrived and met Nicole + Michael and their people, every single thing came together. It was effortless and free and full of love and laughter.
Jim + Rita’s home was spectacular. It was built on top of a hill with views as far as the eye could see. The buildings themselves had walls of windows, existing entirely on solar power. The wind swept through adding movement everywhere. Each guest treated us like family, enveloping us into the circle, making sure we were comfortable and even preparing us special vegetarian meals that were beyond delicious. It was another day spent among friends. Blessed.
Here are our favorite parts of Nicole + Michael’s Southeast Arizona wedding story:
Nicole + Michael have twin daughters who were perfecting their hula hooping skills.
Parenting doesn’t stop on wedding day. Family weddings are our favorites. Kids keep it real.
After the girls were ready, Nicole + Michael helped each other get ready.
Once ready, we celebrated.
And we danced.
Then we headed to get hitched. The wind was like a guest.
Many of the guests had duties and Nicole’s brother was the MC.
Michael’s mom was on top of chap sticking. 😉
The daughters, the flower girls.
And the wind to keep it interesting.
These two feel so right.
The venue. Breathtaking.
Whatta kiss photo is this. Talk about a sparkle in the eye! And the daughters. It’s got it all.
Hitched + Happy.
So much yummy BBQ. Nicole + Michael made sure we had veggie burgers and Rita made sure they were amazing.
We headed out back with Nicole + Michael, her brother and his drone.
This was our first wedding drone encounter and we had a blast.
The reception was chill + natural just like the day had been.
Nicole is a super hero.
Nicole’s grandpa’s got spunk for days.
While parents party kids meditate.
And read books. 🙂
Cheers to our new friends, Nicole + Michael! When you two are together, everything just falls into place. We love your forever.
