Nicki and Andrew

Filed in Wedding  /  May 9, 2018 /

Ohhhhh, how I loved this wedding. Nicki and Andrew held their Saint Louis backyard wedding on Cinco De Mayo, and I am so glad Macklin and I were there to capture it.

I am honest when I say that I love all of my weddings and all of my couples. But there’s just something special for me with backyard weddings. Maybe it’s because Macklin and I got married in my grandma’s backyard.

Andrew and Nicki got married in her parent’s Saint Louis backyard. It was pure magic. There were twinkle lights, all of their best friends, and good music to dance the night away.

I told Macklin on the way home that what we witnessed was the reason why life is worth living. There is so much awful going on in this world, but sharing a meal and celebrating hard with the ones you love — now that’s what life is all about.

Andrew and Nicki are an amazing pair. I only first met them over drinks the week before, as they live in Brooklyn, but we still had a great night getting to know each other. After hearing all of the toasts and meeting all of their friends, it’s clear to me that they truly value relationships and that everyone who knows them adores them. It truly was a joy to be a part of such a huge day for such great people.

I honestly wish I could share all of their photos here because I love every. single. one. So many great candids. I did say it was a great party, right? But alas, here are some of the highlights.
