This is one big giant special blog post you guys. Our very own Nicole married her squeeze last month and Lindsey was there to document their Maple Cove and Indianwood Country Club wedding. Their story has me in awe. Nicole has been with us for 3 years now and stumbling into each others paths has been the best thing for our team. I have gotten to know Nicole as she’s been with us and I found out that she and Ben have been together since they were teenagers! This speaks volumes to me because being together today shows not only how much in love they are but how loyal they are to each other.
Nicole managed to find this cute bed and breakfast to get ready at called Maple Cove. You GUYS this place! It’s absolutely beautiful!! One of the cutest getting ready locations we’ve seen and it was perfect for Nicole’s personality and comforting for her as she prepared for the biggest day of her life. Everything about Maple Cove had character. From the curtains, to the furniture to the wooden stairs. Absolutely beautiful.
Nicole and Ben had a first look so that they could have that moment alone (which we of course LOVE). And the sweetest reaction you can experience is seeing the groom really take it in and express emotional happiness without a care in the world except for seeing his wife right in front of him for the first time.
From the first look Nicole & Ben headed for their ceremony at Kensington church in Troy, Michigan. This was very special for both of their families and it showed. Every image taken showed so much happiness in their faces it truly is very warming to see.
After the ceremony Nicole really wanted just the two of them documented because that is what their day was about, them. They went to the Troy Historic Village and even went to Tim Hortons! For those of you do not know, Nicole is Canadian so Timmy’s is a must for her! These are some of the most beautiful images I have seen (BRAVO Linds!!!!) This, this right here is Nicole + Ben to a T. They love each other, they have tons of passion and most importantly they make each other happy!
They celebrated their day at Indianwood Country Club and managed to go outside for a few more sunset photos which again, WOW! Unbelievable. And this too, again, we see weddings every weekend but the emotion from both families is something that we cannot stage. It’s real, it’s true. its raw and it’s perfect. Their night ended with an incredibly successful day and we could not be more honored to have been their to document their story. Nicole is pretty much obsessed with the fine arts so most of this blog consists of images I know will be her favorites in the fine art edit. Congratulations Nicole and Ben, your wedding was absolutely beautiful.
