Nikki + Michael | Married | Green Acre Campus Pointe

I think I'm in the best "business" because, not only do I get to work with such great couples, I always end up making new friends along the way! Nikki and Michael are no exception.  From our unconventional first "meet and greet," to their fun brewery engagement shoot at Mike Hess, all the way to their big day at Green Acre Campus Pointe.  

From the beginning Nikki and Michael struck me as such an easy going, relaxed and fun couple. They met on the kickball fields, and denied they were anything more than "just friends" for a while (even though their WHOLE family knew better, haha!) before becoming FB official. Their ceremony was nothing but delightful as close family read selected verses that truly embodied the spirit of their love. Nikki and Michael's vows to one another brought both tears and laughter as they attempted to one up each other's pun-game and proclaim their love for each other and Bodie, their sweet fur baby who waited patiently by their sides.

Nikki and Michael got the party started with their first dance to "I Believe in a Thing Called Love," by the Darkness, which is a personal favorite of mine, and I was rocking out right along with them!
