Nikki and Nate’s wedding and reception was held at Oceancliff in Newport, RI. It’s such a great venue that was a perfect match for Nikki and Nate. Now, Nikki and Nate come from the land down under. Though Nikki is originally from Massachusetts, she moved to Australia to be with Nate. Because of the Atlantic Ocean being between us, I had never met them until a week before their wedding. We did a quick engagement session before their wedding. That way, we could break the ice and gel our personalities before their wedding.
From the time they stepped out of the car, they were amazing, and our personalities fit together perfectly. I knew their wedding day would be amazing.
The day of their wedding was perfect. They had great weather, friends, and family. They had a gigantic bridal party -- 22 to be exact. However, the size a non-issue as every single party member was there to have a good time but also there to help me get through the pictures quickly and painlessly.
Before the wedding, Nikki and Nate did a first look. He was stunned by Nicole’s outward beauty on her wedding day. Nate said it best, “I knew you would be beautiful but not this beautiful.” He was blown away.
The ceremony was held outside, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It was picturesque and the bright sunny day complemented the day perfectly. One thing I found out while the guests were sitting down for the ceremony was almost half the guests were from Australia! I was talking to Nate and said do you realize how lucky you are to have all these guests here from Australia? He agreed how blessed he was and said it's truly amazing.
After the ceremony came the reception. It was a non-stop party, and all the guests were dancing all night. Nate and Nikki, may your marriage be as wonderful as your wedding. May your love remain deep and rooted for ever. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture the moments of your day.
