Neil+Nicole: Wedding at The 1909
(For the 100 Layer Cake feature of this amazing wedding, click HERE!)
My wife will confirm how notoriously bad I am at mixing up the accents of people from New Zealand with those from Australia. I am completely aware of how big of a problem this is since people from both of those regions are very aware of how different their native tongues sound. So, it would totally figure, as an exercise in getting better at distinguishing the two, I would get paired up with Neil and Nicole (Neil being from New Zealand).
I knew their wedding was going to be a good day cause when I stepped off of a plane the morning of their wedding, having just shot a super fun 2-day Indian wedding in Santa Cruz, and my energy level was jammin! It didn’t matter that my feet and back hurt because I was walking into a day filled with talented vendor friends, a gorgeous venue, and a couple that had a knack for making me crack up. Neil and Nicole have wonderfully sarcastic sense of humors that are totally my jam and you would never guess that they spend their days as academics in classrooms by how approachable and down-to-earth their kindness is.
Enjoy their gorgeous day! Congrats Neil and Nicole, thank you again for choosing me to tell your story. I really am honored!
