Colten & Nicole | Phoenix Zoo Wedding

September 23, 2016

It's a tale as old as time- the football player falls for the coach's daughter. And just like any good love story, they go on to live happily ever after.

 

I absolutely loved photographing Nicole and Colten's wedding day! It was such a sweet day filled with amazing friends and wonderful family all their to celebrate these two high school sweethearts who have grown to build a life together. I think everyone (including myself!) was in tears at some point throughout the day. You could just tell that this was something special, that this was a day long awaited and that each person there was there in support and celebration for these two to become husband and wife.

 

One of my favorite parts of the day was the toasts at the reception. Nicole's maid-of-honor talked about the feeling of "home" and that while "home" to her was Netflix in bed (my kind of girl!) Nicole's sense of "home" was with Colten. Ugh, cue the tears from everyone in the room! I love that, and believe that is such a strong, real feeling in a marriage. Home is wherever I'm with you. And with Colten in the military this feels like such a perfect way to describe their relationship.

 

Colten and Nicole, I adore you both and know you have what it takes to build a strong, happy marriage in the years to come. I wish you both immeasurable joy and happiness in the years to come! Thank you for letting me be a part of this first day in the next chapter in your lives as husband and wife!
