Congrats are in order for Nicole and Curt—-what a great fun-loving couple. Nothing could dampin their spirits– not even a round of pretty bad thunderstorms the night of their wedding!! Nicole and Curt were married at the beautiful Loch Nairn Golf Club on June 22, 2012. Yes, it is true that the Lock Nairn Golf Club is a stunning place for outdoor weddings, but I have to admit that the indoor ceremony was one of my all time favorite in-door places to shoot a wedding (not kidding). The room had wonderful natural light, the architecture was rustic and romantic and the lights and flowers made the room beautiful and cozy!! As soon as the ceremony ended, we hopped outside during a momentary laps of rain to shoot some quick formals….I don’t think I ever worked so fast to get a group of pictures completed. I was able to get a few quick shots of the wedding party and the last picture taken outside is one my favorites of Nicole and Curt—sure I was standing in the rain, but it was well worth the arch-way picture!!
One of the things I remember Nicole saying to me was that she loved candid pictures and that while formals were nice, she really wanted to me to capture their day as it unfolded. This was a very fun wedding for me to shoot and I took to heart in what Nicole said and I did just that; I captured her day as I saw it from the lens. There is a part of me that wished I had more time outside with the couple before it started raining, but as I started to go through the pictures to choose my favorites for this blog post, I realized that I lOVED all of the pictures. It’s not always about the posed formals, but about the couple on their wedding day…..and this blog post has some of my favorite pictures ever taken of a bride and groom during the ceremony and reception. Congrats Nicole and Curt–I had a blast shooting you and your friends and family!! Enjoy this little window into your day!
