Nicole and Jordan: celebration after the storm
Does anybody remember that storm we had this past summer? You know the one? Crazy thunder and lightning wind and tornado warnings and everything? Well My second shooter and I drove through that on the way up to Port Dover for Nicole and Jordan’s wedding. We both made it safe and sound through that fracas just in time to settle in for the night before this lovely couple’s wedding!
The next morning started with a little bit of a reminder from the night before. It was raining and a bit of wind was left. I drove over to the salon that Jordan’s parents own. Nicole and her bridesmaids were just getting started as I pulled in. Such a great group of girls. They made this bald guy feel right at home.
Eva, my second shooter for the day, started a little while later with the boys at the house next door! It was nice that everything was rather close together!
The girls and I headed out of the salon so they could gather at another nearby house to finish their preparations. The rain was still holding on but it was nothing umbrellas couldn't cure!
The weather finally broke and soon the sun began to shine! By the time we made it to the church the sun was in full effect. The couple shared a lovely ceremony together and people celebrated with them as the headed out the door.
For our portrait session we headed to the shores of Lake Erie. Compared to the night previous, the weather was nothing to complain about BUT it was HOT...like really hot. Like thank goodness we had umbrellas to keep the sun off of us hot, but that didn’t stop Nicole or Jordan.
The natural beauty of the location was more than enough for portraits! We then whisked off to the German Hall in the Town of Delhi for the reception. The hall held a special place of significance for the couple as Jordan’s parents had their reception there! Delicious food, some pretty sweet dance moves, a giant John Deere tractor costume, a crazy photobooth and some heartfelt speeches made for a wonderful evening.
Jordan and Nicole are incredibly nice and fun. I really enjoyed working with them and getting to know them! I’m so happy to share these selections from their special day!
