Jordan & Nicole

A Grand Lodge Wedding

She said, “We’re kinda doing this our own way…” and I loved that! They wanted a small wedding that just felt like them with their absolute closest family and friends. Their Thursday wedding at the Grand Lodge was small and intimate but exactly what they wanted! The lodge is beautiful enough as is, but Sara Falder with Flower + Furbish filled it with beautiful florals and Nicole’s details were so pretty. Everything about their day was relaxed…even when it came to shooting outside. Nicole was up for shooting where ever I took them and she didn’t even shiver in the cold! We found some pretty areas in Lowertown and I love the outcome of their winter photos! My friend Dianne shot with me and we had such a good day with Jordan & Nicole!

Nicole’s sweet girlfriends made her a bridal emergency kit!

Jordan was so nervous before their first look, but he saw her and smiled so big! He even said, “daaaaang” when he saw how beautiful she looked!

I mean, look that that! How sweet!

It was a whopping 20 degrees outside so Nicole brought her coat, but once we started shooting, she took it off and never looked back! They don’t even look cold in these pics!

Nicole’s three best friends acted as bridesmaids even though they technically didn’t have a wedding party. They took care of all the details throughout the day and had fun being Nicole’s “girls”.

I think this one is my favorite bridal portrait of Nicole!!! Girl, you’re gorgeous!!

They’re married! Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Thurston!

Jordon and his sweet parents.
