Abby and Nick are some of the best human beings I’ve met! Seriously, they’re so cool and full of loving energy. Their fall wedding at Tuscan Falls D’Andrea? ICING ON THE FUCKING CAKE.
I was so excited to capture their fall wedding at Reno’s newest venue. I hope to showcase it giving it the justice it deserves.
But before we get there, take a minute to check out Abby & Nick’s Tahoe engagement session because these photos were the reason Abby & Nick decided to hire me for their wedding in the first place 😉
Getting Ready for the First Look
I made my way a little early to join Abby and her bridesmaids in the celebration! What is so great about arriving early is it gives me the perfect time to capture cute detail shots as well as get candid in-the-moment shots of the crew’s getting ready process.
Abby had expressed to me how important it was for them to have both candid and posed shots. So I did my THINGGG. When it came to the first look for Abby’s bridesmaids, she was a little hesitant because she didn’t want to cry. Abby’s first look at her dad was so precious and so special.
Spoiler Alert: HAPPY TEARS WERE PRESENT.
The moment Nick laid eyes on Abby in her dress, he was so speechless all he could say was… “You look so good!” over and over. He spun her around for a full view and that was the cutest thing! CORE MEMORY.
Saying “I Do” at Tuscan Falls D’Andrea
During the ceremony, Abby and Nick noticed two doves sitting on top of the pole where the string of lights was. The. Whole. Time.
Now that is a cosmic moment!
Their ceremony and reception were full of so much love and support. They made me feel like I was part of the family!
Before getting the rest of the celebration started, Abby and Nick kicked off the night with speeches and dances with their parents. Then we took a huge group photo on the dance floor to get the party going!
During the dancing, I noticed Abby was going to the bar and was about to take a shot by herself—NOT on my watch, thank youuuuu. I made sure to take one with her!
Their fall wedding was such a vibe! AND TUSCAN FALLS D’ANDREA?! Incredible. Thanks for letting me be a part of your important night, Abby and Nick!
