Niki + Deans wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek was one of my favorite weddings from the year. The weather wasn't looking so great but somehow we were able to get every picture outside that we wanted! The only change to the day that happened was instead of having the ceremony in front of the wall, the ground was so saturated that we had to have it beside the house on the flat top, but it was still just as gorgeous! And the staff at the Mill is so great to work with and handled the ceremony location change beautifully. It really makes a world of difference to work with a great venue!
I remember sitting down with Niki + Dean and walking away from the meeting really wanting them to book. It's silly how you can get attached to someone during just a quick meeting, but they were so sweet and a previous wedding couple of mine were friends with them, so I knew they would be the perfect couple for me!
The wedding party was a lot of fun. I may or may not had to receive a tetanus shot after groomsmen portraits (just kidding!) But I LOVE photographing a good wedding reception where people can just let loose and dance like no on is watching, and boy, did they! ;)
Niki + Dean opted to do a first look, which allows them to have MORE portrait time and a little time to breathe together before the ceremony. I am a big fan of first looks and will write more on them later!
Niki + Dean,
Thank YOU both SO MUCH for having me capture the most important day of your lives. Your details were pulled together beautifully and I loved working with you two. I wish you many years of happiness! :)
