Yep, Nick + Nikki are their real names, and both left handed. These two BELONG TOGETHER for many other reasons, other than those listed. Their love is true. Their laughter is full. And Adventure is always present. Check out their engagement session here, where we romped through the Paint Mines!
Their wedding day took place at a local Catholic Church, where they said their vows, pinky swore and made their marriage official. But Rembrandt Yard, a beautiful art gallery in downtown Boulder, is where the celebrations happened.
Throughout the day, there were many surprises. I was in on a little secret that happened before the wedding day ever came. Nick and Nikki were presented with a wedding gift from their wedding party: A videographer to assist in capturing the day. If you’re wondering if you should hire a videographer as well as a photographer, I say do it!
All of the other surprises revolved around getting “iced”. As Nikki came out of her preparation room to show off her beautiful dress, in tow were 12 Smirnoff Ice bottles, ready to Ice her bridesmaids. Retaliation came later on during the Trolley Bus ride, when Nikki got iced by the bus driver! Nick got iced during speeches to round out the evening.
All these surprises say a lot about Nick and Nikki. They care about the people around them, they care everyone has a good time, feels important, and feels like part of the family. Their wedding guests and family reciprocate those feelings towards the beautiful couple as well. It was just the most fun wedding day I’ve ever been a part of.
Nick and Nikki didnt hire a traditional DJ. Their friend and wedding industry professional Ben Hammond is a looper and is absolutely fantastic. As his cover of Kip Moore’s ”Hey Pretty Girl” played in the background, they danced as Mr and Mrs and their guests swayed along, feeling the love.
After dinner and donuts were served, the dance floor opened to two cultural events. One of the most popular Polish traditions at wedding celebrations is called the "unveiling". As the guests circle around the bride and groom, music is played while Nikki’s sister and maid of honor, removed her veil and replace it with a bonnet, representing a rite of passage from a young women to married a woman. Nick also was adorned with a fun hat, I believe to wish them a long and happy marriage. The next cultural event was a Lebanese line dance, where everyone grabbed hands and danced: stomping, kicking, smiling and moving throughout the art gallery. Seriously, check out the photos - it was so awesome!
Nick + Nikki, you two are seriously two of the most amazing humans I’ve ever met. I cant wait to follow along with your adventures, and hopefully partake in a few! Cheers, new friends!
