this was a very special wedding for us. katie and i got to fly out with our good friends tyler + katie branch (you must go see their pictures from this wedding...amazing), to the small town, Haslington outside of Manchester. maria picked us up from the airport, giddy and excited, and we felt like we had known her for years. being that it was the first time that we met her, and we were filming her wedding two days later, we were all glad that we hit it off right away. the next couple days consisted of getting to know nick+maria better, and getting to see the venue locations for the first time. their wedding day was so special and unique to them, from the getting ready and seeing Maria get to video chat with her mom back in California, to Nick getting to just have some relaxing time with his best man, and knowing that both of them were so anxious to see each other. their chapel was on an epic proportion--i mean how often do you get to see or visit or pink chapel in the middle of nowhere? and the special baptismal ceremony for their son Jackson was great to be a part of. and hands down, once all the business was taken care of, these people knew how to have a good time, with hours of dancing, chinese lantern send off and great food. we had a blast getting to know, capture and hang out with Nick, Maria and Jackson--and have the best of wishes for their family! we are so glad to have made these friends.
