As we watched the details unfold for Nichole & Hunter’s wedding, we become more and more excited and knew their day would be one to remember!! And it was! As a wedding photographer herself, Nichole thought through every detail and had their epic day planned out perfectly! The rain even held off until we were all inside which was a miracle considering the forecast!
When we arrived at Nichole’s house, she had all the details laid out so we were in every photographer’s dream!! From the wax seals, to her custom ring box, her details were stunning and classic! Simple Stems left us some loose flowers to style with too!!
After Nichole got dressed, she went downstairs for a pre-ceremony celebration with her family members! It’s never too early for dancing, right?? Nichole’s family carried on the Lebanese traditions and these moments were incorporated throughout the day!
Nichole and Hunter chose not to share a first look, so Nichole walking down the aisle was a big moment for them. Their ceremony at Grace Church Downtown was so classic and elegant! Nichole and Hunter exchanged vows and rings, and their bridal party joined them to pray over them. After their exit from the ceremony, we gathered the guests on the outside steps for a photo and it turned out awesome!!
We LOVE fun entrances, so the confetti added to their entrance into the reception at Green Valley Country Club was a favorite part of the day! Nichole and Hunter started the evening on the patio with an Arabic dance and then everyone headed inside for a traditional first dance in the ballroom.
After dinner, Nichole and Hunter had a surprise planned. They opened the dance floor with a choreographed dance to a fun mash-up of multiple songs! From The Greatest Showman to some hype dance music, this was SO fun! The guests loved it and it was the perfect way to start a night of dancing!! Throughout the evening there was a mix of Arabian music, American music and the band’s choice of songs! Emerald Empire killed it with their performance and so did their special guest!! Hunter’s brother-in-law made a special appearance and it was a highlight of the evening.
Not only did Nichole and Hunter have a grand entrance, but they also had a grand exit to close off the night! From a surprise getaway car, to sparkler fountains and fireworks the evening ended with party! Hunter surprised Nichole with a Lamborghini getaway car and after snapping some photos in front of it, they drove off through some epic firework fountain sparklers!
It was truly an honor to capture this day but also to get to know these two incredible people!! We are so thankful that we live in the same city as these two so we can see them again soon! 😉 we love y’all!!
