Charlotte & Nick, how do I even begin to explain how perfect your special wedding day was and how do I explain to you how honored I am to have been able to capture it. The weather, to the love that surrounded you, to the location, and the close friends and family that stood by you. Everything was perfect, and all of the small details that made your wedding day amazing. First off, I want you both to know how special you are and I thank you both for your service and many many sacrifices for our country. I know the pain that is endured when you have to be apart of months on end, especially when you first get married. But I do know that you both are so strong, and the moments apart will make up for the moments together. I loved how small and intimate this wedding was. It was beautifully planned, and Charlotte looks absolutely stunning. We ended up doing a first look, and the way Nick smiled when he turned around about turned my heart to mush. They have a special love and I enjoyed capturing their love story. It was so special to me because, my husband helped shoot the wedding and we were in their shoes just a few years ago. The long distance relationships, deployments, not seeing each other for a long time. God pairs up the strongest men and women with military, because it takes a special person, and that is exactly Charlotte & Nick. Thank you both for letting us spend such a magical evening with you and your family. God bless you both! Much love & many many years of happiness & love.
