There aren't many people that can combine elegance with a down-to-earth attitude. Nicola and James are two of them. Immaculately dressed, they joked and smiled as they traipsed through the misty forest surrounding Nicola's family's home, Nicola handling the high heels + wet leaves combination like it was a sport and she was the world champion.
The rain that persisted throughout the day stopped just long enough for the wedding to be held in the garden Nicola's mom, Gina, had lovingly created, mist rising off the mountains as they said their vows.
Every single guest at the wedding was relaxed and drama-free, and laughter abounded as James dramatically opened the sparkling wine with a saber, and everyone caught up during an epic cocktail hour.
When we consulted with Nicola and James a month before their wedding, they talked about their love of cats- so it was a fun exercise to include Nicola's family's cats in the photos.
