First off, I just need to say that Nikki is one of the sweetest friends I have in my life. We went to high school and played tennis together for a couple of years before she moved away which seriously bummed me out! Fast forward to 2018 and I am thrilled to open an e-mail from her asking me to be her wedding photographer! I was so excited that she truly found the love of her life and that I would be able to document every single precious moment they would share during their special day.
Nikki and Anthony held their wedding last September at Hotel Parq Central in Albuquerque, NM. They couldn’t have a chosen a more beautiful venue! Flowing with greenery and beautiful architecture, it was not hard to find pretty places to take photographs. To top things off, this couple has an amazing sense of style and spoiled me with the prettiest details to take photos of!
Shortly after taking some fun pre-wedding photos with their best friends, everyone, including their precious puppies, made their way to the beautifully decorated ceremony. With sunglasses on and fans in guests hands, they watched Anthony admiring his stunning bride making her way down the aisle to him. Their ceremony was filled with so much laughter, tears, and cheers!
To end the night, Nikki and Anthony surprised their guests at their reception with a special first dance. They took dance lessons for two and a half weeks, twice a week to get prepped, and boy was it worth it! They did such a great job and everyone LOVED it!
Thank you so much, Anthony and Nikki, for letting me be a part of your big day! It truly was an honor and you make a beautiful couple!
I hope everyone enjoys this little peek into their day. :)
