Nicole and Mike’s wedding day was spent on a boat, so you know it was a good time! As you may recall from their engagement session post, I had only met the two of them in person a couple of weeks before their wedding day. They have three children between the two of them and getting to meet their sweet kids on the wedding day was a special treat. The joining of two families is a very special commitment for everyone involved and I’m so happy Nicole and Mike found each other to make this new beautiful family together.
The day started off at Nicole’s parents house where our beautiful bride prepared for the day.
All of the important ladies of Nicole’s life were there to dote on her, which was a super cute and touching thing to watch.
Even her 90-year-old grandmother was there. Nicole’s bond with her grandma was very obvious and seeing them together made me want to march right over to my grandma’s house and give her a huge hug.
Once we arrived at the boat, I found Mike and the boys getting ready. There were bow ties. Purple ones. I was very happy about this.
The thing about having a wedding on a boat is that during portraits you’re … on a boat. We had about 15 square feet of usable space for ALL of the portraits. A lesser woman would have been frightened by this, but I knew Nicole and Mike were going to rock it out so I wasn’t worried. And rock it out they did.
Nicole and Mike’s wedding day happened to fall on Mike’s dad’s birthday. They honored him by having a mini cake made for him and after they cut their wedding cake, everyone sang Happy Birthday to Renzo. So sweet!
Congratulations, Nicole and Mike! I’m so incredibly happy to have witnessed the joining of your two families. Shout out to the vendors that had a hand in the day:
