Jade and Nicholas. Where do we even start in describing this darling couple, and this fairytale day?
This couple has some of the kindest, most generous, most genuine hearts we have ever encountered. The way they adore each other, the way they passionately serve God, and the way they put others first is truly remarkable. You can’t know these two without being influenced to love more. We are beyond thankful that we got to capture their incredible day in Southern Indiana in September. While we don’t shoot many church weddings, we were awed by the significance the mass held in Jade, Nick, and all of their friends and family’s hearts. The ceremony was so sacred and powerful.
We spent time in the stunning Ferdinand State Forest for photos, which was a photographer’s dream! The emphasis Jade and Nick placed on photography was such an honor for us — we had the time to artfully create images instead of rushing. The reception, held outdoors at the Oak Meadow Country Club, was whimsical and charming and absolutely perfect for this sweet couple. They laid their custom made “I Pick Nick” picnic blanket on their sweetheart table (remember that from their Engagement Session?) and the place was covered with photos of them and rustic nature-themed DIY details. The guests danced the night away under the moonlight and the best part was when Nick and his guys tore up the dance floor with a choreographed dance for Jade. Can’t wait to see the video from our friends over at eyenamics.
We loved being a part of their day for many reasons, but above all, because we believe in their marriage so much. The happy couple just moved to Colorado to start their life together in the mountains, and we cannot wait to visit!
PS — Did we mention that Jade and Nick not only gifted us with the coolest photographer mugs for our morning coffee, but also sent us to Holiday World the day after their wedding?! These two are the absolute coolest!
