Nikki & Matt’s wedding day was absolutely incredible! I have been looking forward to this wedding for a very long time. They booked me over two years ago, which I think is the furtherest out I had ever been booked, and I had been so excited to photograph their wedding day at the gorgeous Perona Farms ever since! I did Nikki & Matt’s engagement session back in the Fall of 2016 and immediately knew we were going to have a ton of fun with these two! Nikki is also very interested in photography and for her birthday last year Matt surprised her with her first professional grade camera, and a beginner lesson from me! Since then Nikki has assisted me on a wedding day and will be doing a lot more with me this year. It has been awesome to get to know her more through working together and being her wedding photographer. Both Matt and Nikki are such kind, fun and down-to-earth people and have the sweetest families! I actually met both of their moms the first time I met with them and I was so happy to see them on the wedding day! The sunflower theme was PERFECT for a summer wedding at Perona Farm. The colors, details and decor were all gorgeous and there were so many homemade touches that made everything come together beautifully. Nikki’s Dad and brother made the photo-booth backdrop and her Dad made the center pieces (three of which they sent home with us!!) I loved so much about this day, it’s hard to condense it all into a few paragraphs but I’ll give it a shot haha. First, I loved their first look!!! Their reactions were priceless and the location was so beautiful. I also loved the ceremony overlooking the barn. During their vows they made pinky promises to each other which I thought was just the cutest thing ever! The twinkling lights in the reception room were spectacular! The room was picture perfect and the first dances had everyone in tears. My favorite part of the day was taking the couple outside for some sunset photos. It had cooled down a lot by then and the light on the farm was amazing! It was so fun to sneak out for a few minutes with them to capture a few more romantic portraits before going back up to dance the night away. The DJ kept the energy high all night and the room was filled with love and laughter. It was truly such a beautiful wedding and it was such an honor to be apart of it!
Congratulations Nikki & Matt :)
