Nicole & Steve

Dec 29, 2014 Wedding
i've been lucky to know Nicole for quite some time, as her sister, Angela, is not only part of KSP, but also one of my best friends. when i first found out that Steve had proposed to her, i was beyond happy for them! needless to say, when they asked me to photograph their wedding, i was incredibly honored.

Nicole & Steve have a very special connection; they literally light up when they are around each other. as you will see in the images below, it is hard not to smile when you see them together. their wedding was gorgeous beyond words (an understatement ) & put together with a tremendous amount of LOVE & attention to detail.

their special day also included the talented croonings of Ben Sharkey, hair up-do's by the awesome Katie Terranova, make-up artistry by the wonderful Jamie Clemons & Nicole's make-up by her sister, the one & only, Angela Mikula!

below are some of my favorites from their wedding day, however be sure to check out the slideshow at the end of the post for even more photographs!

on another note, we welcomed our first child just 3 days before their wedding date, so i wasn't able to physically shoot it. with that said, i would like to extend a HUGE thank you to my friends & talented photographers, E'Lisa Campbell and Heather Savas for the collaboration in capturing this day so that i would be able to edit it & share their story, while feeling as if i was right there alongside them. it has been such a special process, for which i am so grateful for!

Nicole & Steve,,, where do i even begin? no really! thank you for trusting this process & for your patience. your love is magical & your wedding day was nothing short of a beautiful love story. may you both continue to walk together in this new journey, hand in hand, with the same laughter, love & embrace that shined through in every single moment from your special day. with great love & gratitude, always, ksen

without further ado, their lovely invitation
