I’ve known Nikki for about 4 years now. She’s and her wonderful family attend my church, Faith Chapel. It’s always such a blessing to capture a wedding and even more so when you worship & pray together on a regular basis! So when Nikki asked me to do her wedding I was more than thrilled! She and Marquis are like peanut butter and jelly, they just go so well together! When you meet them and watch them interact it’s obvious that their souls were ment to be tied to one another. So of course their wedding day was amazing & full of beautiful moments. I especially love that they got married the day after Christmas! All of the decorations were stunning & we got to play a little bit in the snow! (Thanks for braving the wind for me guys!) The whole day was a giant celebration of two families FINALLY becoming one! Thank you so much Nikki & Marquis!
