Nikki + Jeff Married

Nikki and Jeff’s day was intimate, cozy, and filled with all the most important people in their life. Add in a gorgeous table scape, impeccable taste, and this rockstar couple and you’ve got a winning combo!

The Start of a Joyful, Intimate, & Tender Day

After Nikki & Jeff’s engagement session, they invited us to sit and join them for a drink. As the crowd hustled around us at St. Anthony Main, we got a peaceful, intimate night chatting about their story and the stresses of wedding planning. We enjoyed our time with Nikki & Jeff so much that evening.

But now, as we blog their September wedding, it really makes us evaluate that wedding planning culture. Why does it have to be so stressful? Tia’s a member of a Facebook group full of brides that are constantly asking each other what’s right and what’s wrong and how it’s supposed to go. The wedding planning culture is filled with stress, anxiety, and huge glasses of wine. It doesn’t need to be that way. After-all, this is the one time in your life that you get to call yourself engaged, so you better enjoy it. It doesn’t matter how it’s supposed to go, you can create a wedding that is authentically you.

The Final Product

So as we look back on Nikki & Jeff’s wedding, we know that there was some stress leading up to the day. Their venue was remodeling and just shortly beforehand was a construction zone. But looking at these pictures, boy, was it a beautiful wedding. Nikki paid extra attention to her tablescape and all kinds of extra details. Her design vision was executed impeccably and the colors and theme was woven throughout every aspect. And believe it or not, their venue turned out stunning. But here’s the thing guys. That’s not why it was most beautiful.

Personal Touches for the Books

Their wedding was beautiful because of all the special, personal touches they infused into it. It was special because of the close knit bridal parties that were devoted to making sure these two had an enjoyable day. These two people are so utterly genuine. In the way they interacted with vendors, with their guests, and with their family members. And that shone through on their wedding day. It was a joyful, intimate, hilarious, and tender day that had Nikki & Jeff written all over it.

The Moral

So here’s the moral of the story: make your wedding day a reflection of you as a couple and the life that you have built. Don’t focus on what’s supposed to be done or what’s tradition. Focus on your love. Focus on those that surround you and rise you up. And that’s how you will create a wedding day as beautiful as Nikki and Jeff’s.
