Amy and Nichole were married on the second of July, just as they would have hoped. They celebrated their love in a unique way, always on the second of each month. Their first date was on July 2nd, five years ago. They were engaged on December 2nd and often, Nichole would continue to surprise Amy with something most months, always on the second. Luckily, July 2nd, 2016 fell on a Saturday- a chilly one for the usually holiday weekend. A cold front moved through, bringing such a refreshing breeze and some really dramatic cloud cover off in the distance. Nichole loves to read and it was their fitting idea to have their first look in the Jackson Public Library. After the girls both got ready on opposite floors of the Eagle Mountain House, Nichole awaited Amy’s arrival with her four bridesmaids. Nichole’s bridesmaids wore a darker shade of blue while Amy’s wore a bright bold blue color. Each of the girls got to pick out their own favorite Tom’s shoe to wear, a gift from Amy and Nichole. Amy arrived at the library and all the girls started bawling. The emotions in the library were so high and it was so neat to have all the bridesmaids witness their first look. Amy and Nichole each grabbed a book, stepped out into the aisle and faced each other, with the books still covering their faces. On their count of three, they lowered the books. Tears! Everyone was crying! We spent the next hour visiting different locations around downtown Jackson taking portraits and having an absolute blast. These girls are all so special. Guests started arriving back up at the Eagle Mountain House- the ceremony was about to begin! Amy and Nichole were each walked down the aisle by their parents. A unique ceremony, centered around the love of each other as well as their community, was followed by their fist kiss as brides! A skip down the aisle and these two snuck out to the bridge just below the ceremony site for a quite moment alone. Cocktail hour back up on the veranda welcomed the guests and we were able to spend much of the time taking details of the tent and fun portraits of the guests enjoying themselves. Speeches, followed by a wonderful dinner in the tent, was a prelude to all the dancing that was about to come. Luckily, I was able to sneak Amy and Nichole away for a few more portraits down the road. I’m so glad we did! They were even more adorable than before and we were able to utilize the beautiful evening light. I stayed for some fun, classic dance moves- Britney Spears definitely brought some people to the middle of the dance floor. Thank you two for asking us to document your special day. Amy and Nichole- you two are so special to us and we are so glad we were there to witness it all. All the best in the world!!
