From a sweet surprise proposal at a Dan + Shay concert, to planning a huge celebration, to deciding on an small wedding day in the face of a pandemic changing all their plans – Nicole and Ryan’s intimate classic wedding in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska was a testament to what truly mattered. Surrounded by a small circle of ten family members (and their cute puppy Briggs), they exchanged letters before promising forever to each other at their church. They danced in the living room, shared toasts and clinked glasses with the ones they held closest.
The bride’s classic crepe wedding gown by Made With Love Bridal paired perfectly with vintage-inspired pearl shoes by J Renee. Her stunning veil, with a modern floral trim, was custom made by a friend (who also designed a MET Gala dress worn by Poppy Delevingne!). Ryan wore a classic navy blue suit and floral tie.
Scroll down for some of my favorite portraits to date, taken in the back hallway of their church where we found some beautiful dramatic light!
