Nikki and Stephen met in the registration line for their Computer Animation classes. Stephen couldn’t help noticing beautiful Nikki and her lovely hair~that happened to be a bright shade of blue at the time. When they were assigned their first group project together, sparks flew and they became inseparable. The rest is history!
Nikki on their first date: “We both had been gifted annual passes and the park was a short drive from where we lived. We remember that day perfectly, we got on every ride, did everything we wanted to do. That night, Stephen bought one of those four-foot pixie stix from the Confectionary and ate the whole thing. I think he was nervous, but I’ve never seen him that hyper since!”
Some of the things they love to do together are go for happy hour sushi, watch Dr. Who, and play League of Legends or dungeon runs in WoW. Nikki told me they are geeks, but since I’ve gotten to know them better, and I can tell you they are geeks with a side of awesome sauce. ^_^
Stephen loves Nikki: “I love how we can share moments and know what the other is thinking with just a look.”
Nikki loves Stephen: “I love Stephen’s unshakable strength and that he can make me laugh more than anyone I’ve ever met.”
Nikki pulled her wedding inspiration from World of Color and the Animated Masterpieces that she loves. She decided to use every color on her wedding day, with specially designed animated table light settings and a colorful cake and candy bar!
Nikki about the wedding planning process: “The best part of the wedding planning process was when we woke up the morning after and there was no more wedding planning! We kid, we really loved the tour of the venues and our tasting. I think that’s when it all became very real to us, we both had the realization that, ‘This is really happening!’ Cynthia, our wedding coordinator, was wonderful! Our ceremony ended up being our favorite part. Being surrounded by our loved ones on a beautiful day, making life-long promises. It was perfect.”
Congratulations again, you two. It was an absolute pleasure photographing you and your families.
