The couple had immediately become my dear friends, even before their amazing engagement session! I was blown away by how warm and friendly these two beauties were. Not to mention they were willing to try all kinds of creative things for the sake of art! (See them wading in water here 🙂 ) Kirsty had come from Australia to play basketball in an American college, where she soon met and fell in love with Nick (For this delightful story visit their website!). The two proceeded to have all kinds of adventures together, from road tripping across America, to exploring the East coast of Australia. They knew what it was like to have a great time together, as well as to patiently wait through seasons of being months apart. Needless to say, their wedding was an event eagerly awaited by family and friends around the world!
As the wedding approached, the out-of-towners started to arrive. There could be no denying that Lakeland was taken by storm! Night after night the beautiful wedding party hit the town to dance, laugh, and celebrate the nearing union of their two friends. At last, April 1st rolled around in all of its Springtime glory. The sky was blue, the breeze was blowing, and the group of silk robe-clad bridesmaids ran out of the terrace hotel in a wave of giggles to make their way to the Sorosis Building.
The entire day was marked by an abundance of laughter. Everyone knew how to have a good time! From wedding party photos at Hollis Gardens to the sweet and joyful ceremony, from romantic sunset shots to the rambunctious reception, everything went better than could have been expected or planned. I will never forget how Kirsty’s brothers stood next to her as “bridesmen” during the ceremony, or how Baby’s Breath was placed so delicately in Georgie’s dreadlocks, or how Nicole almost said “funeral” instead of “wedding” in her toast!! These are the moments that will make me smile for years to come…
I will always treasure couples like these. They are the ones that give me joy and keep me laughing! Words cannot express my eagerness to see all of the adventures in store for Kirsty and Nick.
