Romance never goes out of style. As people’s tastes change, and fad’s come and go, at the end of the day we remember the feelings we had during the milestone events in our lives, as well as the little things we do for one another so that they know just how important they are to us.
From the moment we first met with Jessica’s mom who filled us in on the whole back-story of her daughter and Nils, we knew that they are hopeless romantics. This was confirmed by their beautiful engagement session in Central Park recreating Nil’s proposal to Jessica. And as their story went, it was no surprise that they chose to have their marriage witnessed at Lord Thompson Manor by their closest friends and family.
There truly wasn’t a detail or special reminder that wasn’t exactly in line with their vision. The flowers popped from every table and mantle in the manor, with the wedding aisle center stage for an explosion of rose petals for Jessica and her father to walk down. Giant pink and white balloons with beautiful ribbons for their flower girls and ring bearer (all of whom ran gleefully around Jessica and Nils, and then released them in unison to giggles and shrieks of delight) preceded photos under twinkling chandeliers and hanging candles in the evening light. Everywhere we turned there was another beautiful and thoughtful touch to photograph, and another smiling face to capture as their guests enjoyed an amazing day.
It was all terribly romantic, just like Jessica and Nils, and we finished the day with warm hugs from the happily married Mr & Mrs, wishing it didn’t have to end.
