Storms Can’t Keep These Two From Marrying | St. Croix Falls Wedding Photographer

August 10, 2010

Erik and Nickie are one of the most IN LOVE couples I have ever met.  Their love is literally visible when they talk about each other and look at one another.  Their families have been friends for years.  They have seen each other at family functions for as long as they can remember.  It took them a lot of years before realizing that the other one was The One for them.  I worked with Nickie when she and Erik got engaged and it was a tremendously happy time.  She hung photos of the engagement (in Lutsen) on her cube wall to remind her just how incredibly lucky she is.  When Erik would come around, her smile would get exponentially bigger and her eyes would sparkle.  I have seen true love.  Erik and Nickie embody true love.  It was an honor to be by their side on their July 17th wedding day.

Isn’t this the most awesome way to stand during a prayer?

Erik and Nickie wrote their own vows for big day and read them to each other during the ceremony.  They were the most heartfelt words I have ever heard.  I’m surprised I was able to capture this photo.  It was doubly special because both of their parents stood next to them.

After the ceremony, the happy couple led the guests in grape-stomping complete with garbage bags and a big bin to wash your feet.  What troopers!  As the clouds started to turn dark and one of the biggest thunderstorms of the year rolled in, we dashed off to take some couple photos down by the tree where the ceremony was originally going to be.  Unfortunately, the rain started nearly right away, but we got a few awesome ones including this one.
