With the number of wedding venues out there, it might be easy to forget that there’s one classic place to get hitched: church. That’s exactly where Nikki and Nate opted to tie the knot, and it made for some gorgeous photos. Their wedding at Blessed Sacrament Roman Catholic Church in Scottsdale was spectacular!
Nate got ready with his closest friends, trading laughs and even gifts before they got ready for the ceremony. His group of guys clearly was having a great time together, looking forward to Nikki making an honest man out of Nate, as they say! We saw nothing but smiles on their faces.
Meanwhile, Nikki was getting prepped at a nearby Airbnb with her gals. They soaked up warmth in the backyard’s green grass, getting some rays while they sipped on champagne and cocktails. Plus, they had a special touch: Polaroids! Being able to capture your own memories is something that’s truly special, and watching Nikki and her bridesmaids snap candids was a blast. Who’d have thought we’d be taking photos of them taking photos? It was really a lot of fun!
Fun wasn’t everything, though. When it came time, Nikki transformed for the ceremony, and what a vision she was. We almost fell in love ourselves! Nate was every bit as spiffy, too, getting his tux just right so he could look like a GQ model. You could feel how excited both of them were to tie the knot.
Before the ceremony, they opted for a first look to get the jitters out! Nikki had one with her bridesmaids to show off her stunning dress, and trust us when we say that none of the ladies could hold back happy tears. They didn’t compare to the first look Nikki had with Nate, though: he was speechless!
It’s a good thing he got his voice back in time to make his vows. There in the church, in front of their loved ones, Nikki and Nate pledged themselves to one another, ’til death do them part. No hesitation. The love that Nikki and Nate share is deep, so deep that they can feel it in their bones. It made it easy to say those two magic words: “I do.”
Nikki and Nate definitely did. Sealing their union with a kiss, they took the first step in their lives together as newlyweds, and we can’t wait to see what joy life brings them.
Congrats, Nikki and Nate! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your love story!
