A Stonehouse at Stirling Ridge Wedding with Nicole & Brian

I was nervous for this wedding. Mostly because Nicole & Brian are really great friends of ours and my husband, Brian (yes, same name!) was in charge of giving the best man speech. Plus, it was the first time ever I put my camera down for the reception so I could really be present for our friend's wedding day. Thankfully, my talented friends Mekina and Asher stepped up to capture the reception and with my dream team in place, I was able to be completely stress free!

Then again, I wasn't nervous at all because Nicole & Brian are the sweetest and I knew the day would flow beautifully with Paige of Gilded Lily Events at the reigns for decor! My favorite details included the raspberry velvet chair in the snow from Dovetail Vintage Rentals, the mittens available to guests at the door and Nicole's custom hair piece made from her late mother's wedding dress. I know, tear jerker. It was very special when Nicole saw her dad for the first time and told him what the hair piece meant to her. Plus, the gorgeous golden light during N&B's first look and portraits was insane! We were so lucky on this February day - everything worked out beautifully and it was such a memorable moment with our friends. (Oh, Brian killed his speech - he'd want me to mention that!)
