When a photographer can’t be behind the shutter of her camera because, say… she’s getting married, who does she call? Perhaps someone she trusts? Her wedding is a moment she’s dreamed of all her life. She wants to remember it well for the rest of her life.
So when Nicki, an award-winning photographer, came and asked for Michelle Lawson Photography to capture her and Stephen’s wedding, our jaws hit the floor. Wow. A photographer’s photographer? Pardon me while I slap my cheek and blink. What an honor.
Not only are we honored to snap photos for a fellow professional and her groom, but we also had a great time doing it! This couple rocks! They have a wild and fun sense of aventure. We spent lots of time together doing their engagement photo sessions in Hollywood and at the beach. Their sweet personalities added sparkle and light to every shot. Their wedding, set outdoors at the Grande Oaks in Davie, FL, was an incredible mix of romantic charm and clever pops of personality.
This photo of the dress makes me sigh a dreamy sigh every time I see it. Ah, the romance! But this bride’s fun side can’t help but show through too, like with her leopard print heels. Meow!
And yes, grooms have to get ready too.
Then, enter with us into wonderland.
Also known as the Grande Oaks.
It’s a place where jewels cascade from the boughs of majestic oaks trees and sway gently in the afternoon breeze. Violin music sweetly drifts among the friends and families of the celebration.
Our groom stands expectantly waiting for that first sight of his bride.
Wait for it….
Pure Joy! Nicki sees Stephen…
Stephen sees Nicki.
Join with me, friends….AAAAWWWWW!!!
But this husband and wife couldn’t stay away for long! No, no. There was a party to get to! Dances to be danced! Cupcakes to eat!
DJ Ray from Eddie B. & Co. rocked the dance floor.
Congratulations Nicki and Stephen!
