Nicole and Chris’s fall wedding at Pineknot Golf and Country Club
November 5th 2016
Here it is! My last wedding of 2016, and boy was it ever an AMAZING one! I love these two, they are incredible and their wedding day was just magical! I am so excited to finally share this one because it was one fantastic way to end off my 2016 wedding season (not to mention it was one day before my birthday so they chose well!)
I first met with Nicole and Chris in the spring of 2015 to chat about their wedding, they ended up meeting my mom at the September bridal show after that and very shortly after officially booked with Michelle A Photography for their wedding day! We headed out at the end of November to capture their engagement session at Mill Pond in Dorchester, if you’ve never been you should check it out it is an absolutely gorgeous natural trail. Naturally I was excited when they said they would be bringing along their two adorable dogs for the session, you can check that out here!
Before to long their wedding day finally rolled around and I was so excited to photograph this stunning day! Brace yourselves as this is probably the longest wedding blog post I have ever wrote, but how could I not include all this precious moments and memories!
So lets begin,
We began the day at Best Western London Airport Inn just on the out skirts of London to capture Nicole get ready with her mom, step-mom and her lovely little sister and flower girl, Mya!
Also I couldn’t help but steal this card for a couple of photos! Chris is such a sweetheart and you can tell how much these two are meant to be! <3
For anyone out there that has no interest in doing a first look with their future husband or wife, why not consider doing one with your dad (or another parent)! This moment was so special for both Nicole and her dad and I am sure they will cherish it forever!
After finishing up the getting ready images we headed out to Pineknot Golf and Country Club for Nicole and Chris’s first look! Gah, I love first looks! They are my favourite!!
Although Nicole planned for a winter wedding the weather didn’t quite want to co-operate so we ended up getting a beautiful 15 degree sunny day! It ended up being amazing for photos anyways and these two are so easy going! We still took some images with Nicole’s winter cape anyways to make sure it was included!
Not to mention we got lucky with these incredible yellow leaves!
We headed back up to the course to begin capturing the groomsmen, bridesmaids and bridal party images before the ceremony got underway! Ps. how amazing are the groomsmens socks?! 😛
Inside we captured all of their wedding day decor, Nicole did so well with all the royal blue and silver and even though the weather didn’t get the memo about a winter wedding the decor inside fit it perfectly!
Right before the ceremony Chris and I snuck away to capture some images of just him. We didn’t have the time in the morning to capture any getting ready shots so this was our way of faking it later on in the day to still have those images captured!
The ceremony was held on the upper patio at the back of the golf course and had one incredible view for them to say “I Do!”
After the ceremony, we had time for all the family photos as well as to take some more fun images of the bridal party and some more of just Nicole and Chris as well!
Next comes the fun part! After their entrance they did a face-off to kick off the night, they are both into hockey and Chris also plays so it was a perfect fit for both of them!
The rest of the night consisted of emotional speeches, lovely parent dances and an incredible dinner! Once the dancing got started the fun really began and everyone just danced the night away!
I can’t even express how lucky I am to get to meet such amazing people like Nicole and Chris and I wish them so much happiness in their lives together!
