Nicole and Nic were married at The Lobby in Denver. Preparations for the wedding day began at the Maven Hotel.

Nicole shares, “Looking back on the wedding, I was over the moon with the entire experience. The weather was perfect and we caught some light right before the sunset. Our nieces and nephews walking down the aisle were adorable from what I could see! I wasn’t really nervous to walk down the aisle — just so excited to finally see Nic. And he looked so handsome in his suit. The ceremony was beautiful. Father Messina did an amazing job. It meant a lot to to be able to stand up in front of everyone and say those vows to each other. Nic was more nervous than me to be the center of attention – if it had been up to him we would have eloped in Vegas in the Circus Circus Chapel. But he went through the stress of the event for me, and I’m so grateful.

The best part about the wedding was having all of our family and friends together to celebrate. Nic’s family is from Colorado and Oregon, and mine is from New York, so this may be the only time we’ll ever have everyone in one place. It was so much fun to talk to everyone and see all of our guests having a good time. The music, flowers, food (and photography!) were all awesome and really exceeded my expectations.

It was a really joyful occasion. We are very blessed with family and friends who love us and gave us the opportunity to have this beautiful wedding to celebrate our life together.”

Congratulations Nicole and Nic!

Megan and Jeremy were married at the Chief Hosa Lodge in Golden, Colorado. The day began at the Table Mountain Inn.

Megan shares, “Our romantic, rustic wedding in the foothills of Golden, CO was a destination wedding for most guests, with my family being from Pennsylvania and Jeremy’s from Alabama. The venue, Chief Hosa Lodge in Golden, overlooks sweeping views of the continental divide, with Interstate-70 just below – the highway where we first said “I love you” upon returning from a camping adventure nearly five years prior.”

Congratulations Megan and Jeremy!

Mindy and Michael were married on a beautiful September day at the Brooklyn Winery. The day began at the St. Regis hotel and with photos in Central Park.

Mindy met Michael at the southeast corner of Central Park for their first look.

Mindy and Michael began working together at SafeRent in 2010 and really got to know each other in 2015 through work. Mindy shares, “I was so impressed with his charm, chivalry and of course, his professionalism. I knew at once that Michael was a wonderful person and was so glad he was in my life”

Michael asked Mindy to marry him in Central Park on April 21 of this year.

Mindy had a special surprise for Michael. She shares, “He was certain I got him a watch as a wedding gift. Instead I bought him a necklace he had admired in Peru (the week before the wedding) but didn’t buy and put it in an empty watch box. It was great to see his surprise (and confusion) when he opened the gift. We chose the cufflinks he wore for the wedding together in Peru as well.”

Mindy shares, “The wedding was better than I ever imagined it would be. My fascination with Indian culture and weddings inspired the decor and color scheme for our wedding. Kehrin made this vision come to life with a hint of Indian tradition paired with a color palette that was bright and vibrant with beautiful traditional floral garlands. The winery’s warmth from the reclaimed wood succulent wall, paired with the modern concrete floor and light filled atrium made for a perfect venue for what turned out to be a dream wedding for me. Seeing the room set for dinner prior to the guests entering brought tears to my eyes. It was magical and everything I imagined.

I loved everything about the day, from the luxurious room at the St Regis to getting ready with my darling nieces to seeing Michael for the first time in Central Park to walking down the aisle and seeing everyone I love in one place to pronouncing our love in front of them all to the delectable black and white cake from Amy’s Bread. It was all just perfect.

Michael forgetting his vows at home, his button popping off of his tuxedo when he was getting ready and my veil catching fire during my procession all just added to the special memories from the day. I was so honored to have my mother walk me down the aisle and give me away, my best friend standing beside me and my brother reading in the ceremony and sharing his lovely daughters as flower girls. My heart is so full. Our first dance was punctuated by Dorothy, my oldest niece, twirling around Michael and I. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.”

Congratulations Mindy and Michael!

Shelby and Lawrence decided to elope! We turned their engagement session into a celebration photo shoot.

Shelby shares, “Lawrence and I met back when we were both in college. Looking back, it seems almost like fate that we sat next to each other. After two and a half years together (and two apartments, four foster animals, six escape rooms, and countless puzzles), Lawrence proposed at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

We began planning a traditional wedding, but we soon realized neither of us enjoys the spotlight nor the pomp and circumstance of a big event, and were happily married at City Hall with only our parents and my brother in attendance. Although it was a considerable downsizing from our original plan, we felt that such a small, intimate wedding was exactly what we were looking for.

A big wedding isn’t for everyone and I feel so grateful I have a (permanent!!!) partner who was willing to marry me, whether in the grand Plaza Hotel or a tiny chapel at City Hall.”

I think this is my favorite photo from their session. As we were getting ready to take some photos in this busy area along the water, the waves suddenly crashed right at our feet. I love these expressions on Shelby and Lawrence’s faces.

Congratulations Shelby and Lawrence!

Rachel and Dan were married at the Temple Emanu-El in Closter, New Jersey.

The couple shared a first look in the courtyard.

Rachel shares the story of how they met, “I was having a pretty standard day at my Verizon FiOS sales job at the corporate VZ store on Rt. 4, smiling and helping customers. I was always sure to make contact with every person that walked through the door. In walked Dan, wearing his signature black hat and unusually large black Spider jacket. He had let his beard grow out this cold 2013 winter.

I approached him, “Hi there, do you have FiOS in your home yet?” The closer Dan got to me, the taller he seemed. His eyes were staring right into mine, his smile showing through his beard. “Actually no, I need to speak with you….”

We got engaged on the Eiffel Tower August 16, 2018. Following “Thank you! That’s so nice, you don’t have to” and, eventually a teary “YES,” Dan and I walked the streets of Paris in a daze of love and happiness.”

Married!

During the reception, we had some time to sneak away for some portraits since the sky had cleared.

Congratulations Rachel and Dan!
