Nathan and Nicole published on Style Me Pretty!

I held out posting this so that Style Me Pretty could post it first! One of my favourite weddings that I got a chance to photograph this year for sure! Stage Right Etc did an epic job with the decor, florals and planning of this wedding! My jaw dropped when I walked in and saw the room for the first time.  Here’s the link for it up on Style Me Pretty with more pics!

It was a pretty unique situation for this wedding as there were two photographers! Brandon Scott was their main photographer and with them for the whole day. Brandon is a good friend of the bride’s and hails from Windsor, Ontario. He’s super talented so check out his work here and stayed tuned for his post on Nicole and Nathan on his blog! I was hired by Stage Right Etc to take decor photos (since this was one of their epic weddings of the year and they wanted lot’s of photos to document it).  I also had 30 minutes to myself with Nicole and Nathan to take photos of them as a part of an agreement made.

As told to Style Me Pretty: Nathan had Nicole giggling and smiling constantly with funny expressions and secret whispers. They were glued at the hip! I loved their style from Nathan’s Buddy Holly glasses down to his boots with the untied laces and the beautiful feathers in Nicole hair.
Nicole made an amazing inspiration scrapbook that she gave to their amazing wedding planners, Danielle and Ria, of Stage Right Etc  and they really drew from that and made it amazing. Danielle is going to share some pictures of the inspiration book on her blog post for this when she does it so stay tuned for that at! Nicole started crying when she thanked them because she thought it was so gorgeous. Pretty cute.
