Nikki and Kaity | Waddell Center Wedding

There is nothing better than watching two people and their adoring families celebrate the couple’s love and union in marriage. This day was the best of that best. Nikki and Kaity are genuine, kind, full of love and easily some of my favorite people. I’m so very happy they found one other and also found me. Full of beautiful moments here are a few favorites for the couple’s wedding day preview.

Congrats Nikki and Kaity! I hope you love these, so many more to come!
