welcome to the soon to be famous blog post of the Nickanie wedding. much anticipated..if by no one else than by ben and I…we’ve been dying to get this post up and alas the wait is over.

nick and stephanie are yet another couple we met from darby and steves completely famous wedding we shot over a year ago. not only have we seen them multiple times since THAT wedding (angie & shawns wedding, sam & dannys wedding), but we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them over this period of time. we knew their wedding was going to be totally fabulous because of a few reasons:

1) they named it nickanie. honestly, this begs awesomeness.

2) they had a twitter account for their wedding and kept us all updated on planning details..down to stephanie’s hunt for the perfect pair of heels. (which you’ll see in a moment, she definitely found)

3) there was a bit of a greek theme. yes greek…im in love with all greeks now.

4) sean nyffeler was the dj. amen and amen.

5) they put their literal heart and soul into EVERY element of the day, and it definitely screamed nick and stephanie and their fabulous style.

6) darby musha was the coordinator. glory glory hallelujah.

The venue was Casa Feliz, which ive been itching to shoot at for a while now. Its quaint and totally charming, offering amazing details and unique elements wherever you turn. Arthurs once again did not disappoint, and they are officially KP’s favorite catering company. Sheridan Flower Shop made me swoon over the brides bouquet, and Delish NY Bakery offered up incredible greek treats and some super tasty cakes.

OK. As i said above, Sean Nyffeler was the DJ. you have all heard me sing his praises before. well this wedding takes the cake. oh yes, the set list and the dancing were mind-blowingly good. i hit up Sean on twitter yesterday and he sent me the song list…and here is where we play a little game.

in my opinion, everyone should hear this music because it will cause major dancing to commence (always awesome). so i’m including the songs in this post…placed randomly amongst the pictures i feel the song title goes with.  the challenge is this: two of these songs are actually on my website. the first 5 people to guess Both these songs correctly will score a cd of the Nickanie Set List…which will go down in history as being totally awesome. so make your guesses in the comment section..like i said, the first 5 people score a cd from me!

and before we delve into this amazing wedding, you’ll notice the setup of this post is a bit different. i felt the way the day unfolded and the way in which ben and i documented it begged for a bit of an editorial feel. hope you enjoy!!!

i always love shooting in tallahassee. especially in the summer…YES, its hot but its oh so green and lush. i miss the big oak trees and the moss that tallahassee has. i really enjoyed my time with david and megan for their eshoot out at Southwood and downtown tally, so to say i was looking forward to this wedding was an understatement. and bonus, we knew so many people that were guests or in the wedding..again! we just love it when this happens.

megan is a very very special girl. she is very fun to be around but is also so beautifully sweet and gentle and caring. and david is quiet and so in love with her. (as well all are). her dress was killer and southern to the core! she was radiant literally all day. ben was a favorite of the boys once again, and they gq’d it up for him giving us some awesome shots of the bridal party! the details were all DIY by the bridesmaids and by megan. we loved the big italian dinner and the “marriage is messy” bibs…paired with the mason jars and the gorgeous natural light, we couldnt have asked for a more beautiful reception.

im so thankful for clients like david and megan! and now that they have entered into marriage bliss, they found it only fitting to move to the best place on earth…south florida! we will be taking a little day trip down to ft lauderdale soon for a visit. congratulations you two and enjoy these!!
