To say it was an honor to photograph Nick and Carla’s elopement would be an understatement. I was secretly hired by family members a few weeks before the Big Day. I have to admit, it was hard keeping it a secret from Carla…I just wanted to squeal with delight and hug her so tight when I first heard of their idea to elope!

Although the judge wouldn’t let me take any photos during the ceremony, there is still lots of neat shots from the courthouse. Afterwards, a small group went to Sam & Greg’s where we toasted to the newlyweds over pizza and beer! Later that evening I met up with Nick and Carla at Rosie’s for their family dinner and reception. Carla has exquisite taste and her unique collection created a beautiful cake table – complete with succulent centerpieces for the table! Congrats to the love birds, and a huge thanks to Melanie and the rest of the family for letting me be a part of this wonderful celebration!

Huge hugs to Kat at Rock n’ Roll Bride for featuring their wedding! You can read the story here!
