Blakeley and Nick – Black Lantern Wedding Photographer

It was great to be back at the Black Lantern for another special event!  This time it was for Blakeley and Nick’s BEAUTIFUL wedding!

Blakeley, her mom, sister and friends made these creative “Sending you s’more love” wedding favors that fit with their fun theme.  The adorable tags were purchased off of Etsy.  You can find the coolest things on that site!

It’s probably difficult to see, but there is a cute little tree frog on the cabin above the dress.  We didn’t bother to move him…

Blakeley loved having her hair and makeup done first earlier in the day.  It gave her a chance to sit back, drink a mimosa, and enjoy watching everyone else getting ready.  I highly recommend doing it this way to all of my brides.  That way you don’t have to feel stressed and rushed as you get dolled up for the best day of your life!


She thought Nick would be the first to cry…but she beat him to it!

I know I mentioned this in their sneak peek, but he really adores his bride.  Every time he looked at her he seemed so twitterpated.

It is ALWAYS fun to vary the shades and colors of bridesmaid dresses!  I also love the popularity of the navy suits this year!  They are so dapper!

These two are blessed by an abundance of family and friends!

The Black Lantern is such a special place to get married!

Blakeley and Nick, your wedding turned out awesome!  I especially love how Nick stopped at the skate park the morning of after picking up the flowers!  The day was all about you two, and I loved all the details that made it that way.  I wish you the best in everything!
