Nikki & Blake: Wedding Part 1


If there was one thing she wasn’t worried about, it was the weather. Amongst the myriad of things she had to think about leading up to her wedding, Nikki didn’t worry about the weather. She just knew that she was ready to get married. She was ready to call Blake her husband.

It was a beautiful Spring day, with the sun shining brightly and a light breeze, making it a gorgeous day in Texas. Surrounded by their family and friends, Nikki and Blake created a wedding at the 1899 Farmhouse in Princeton (northeast of Dallas) that truly reflected their relationship. From the infusion of Superman details to the rosary that was wrapped around Nikki’s bouquet, to awesome shoes, to the handmade centerpieces,  this wedding was true to their fun personalities. They married under a gorgeous arbor, as they promised their lives to each other, their faces beaming with love. It’s clear to me that they are a perfect match.

Nikki and Blake…I can’t begin to thank you for simply being you. Your wedding was perfect and I loved every minute of it! There were times when I wanted to reach out and squeeze you for making me fall more in love with what I do. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your love story…it’s an honor I cherish.

I don’t typically photograph the groom’s shoes, but these were truly awesome! Blake, you’ve got some great style!

I was psyched that Nikki and Blake opted for a First Look. I set Blake up on the amazing wrap around porch of the 1899 Farmhouse.

Lisa of Coco Fleur Events did a FANTASTIC job with the ceremony site. In fact, she and her team built the arbor that Nikki and Blake stood under as they took their vows.

    Nikki & Blake – In my opinion, a unique wedding is the best possible kind! (Maybe I’m biased because of my wedding, lol, but people will remember the originality you put into your day–I certainly will!) Loved how your personalities were reflected in even the smallest of details…. What a memorable day for you two!

    Catie – You have a true talent for bringing an enchanting evening to life through photographs…and I’ve only seen the sneak peak!

    I can’t wait to see all the pictures! Love to the newlyweds from Pittsburgh!!!! =)
