the engagement

for Nikki + Matt's engagement session, we planned a fun little mountain adventure up the Poudre River just outside of Fort Collins, Colorado. Stopping at all the beautiful spots on the drive, adventuring around the river and the mountains.... THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO DO A SESSION I SWEAR!

They brought their adorable and sweet pup Latigo along to help celebrate and of course be in pictures.

the wedding

Nikki and Matt's wedding was the most adorable shabby chic, country meets earthy meets magically them wedding out there. Nikki is the QUEEN of shabby chic -- seriously -- every detail was so soft and delicate but so unique and beautiful.

They got married at McC Ranch which is just outside of Loveland, Colorado in the foothills. Their wedding was filled with intricate paper flowers, bird cages, and all the greenery you could ever imagine.

Nikki and Matt choose to share their vows in a private moment before the ceremony, which was the most emotional and sweet moment I have seen at a wedding. Their kind hearts and genuine words made me cry-- they were crying too-- ps.
