Nikki & Bryan – Celebrations on the Bay

Sep 23, 2013

Oh, Nikki and Bryan. I adore these two more than words. Their love is so contagious, they are magical kissers, and are just so giddily in love, it is hard to not think it is adorable and that these two were meant to be. And honestly, when you are this in love and can’t keep your hands off of each other (in a total romantic way), it just makes the photos that much better.

Nikki’s love for all things nautical sparked a beautifully planned (or not really planned since Bryan didn’t like the first spot he had in mind) proposal in downtown Annapolis. Bryan had the idea of proposing at the Naval Academy but when he was there, something just didn’t feel completely right. But after dinner, down by the docks, Bryan didn’t give up, despite Nikki shivering because she was so friggin’ cold and just wanted to go back to the car (it was January after all!) and asked this awesome girl to marry him. I’m sure she was warm the rest of the night.

Nikki & Bryan – it was an absolute joy to work with you! From the minute you sat down at Baltimore Coffee and Tea and we totally hit it off talking about 80s ski parties to the last second of your reception, it has just been perfect. You are literally the perfect people for each other and I cannot wait to see where this true love takes you two. Keep in touch, friends!!

I loved the bridesmaids dresses!! Hello, Lilly Pulitzer!!

So gorgeous, Nikki!

First look! I loved it. It’s like all he needed to make his day better was to see her.

Loved all the nautical decor!

You two are going to make the most beautiful babies. They are going to grow up and be models.

This happened. It was hysterical.

And then an epic reception happened!!

Loved these last two!

    AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! Seriously Dani you rocked the — out of this wedding! These images are absolutely stunning. From the first to the last.

    And of course I am 100% obsessed with the LP dresses and garter. The bridal party photo with the adirondack chairs is probably my favorite of all time!
