Nick and Brielle have lived a full life. These two have gotten married twice, yes twice. They had a beautiful courthouse wedding in 2018 and wanted to celebrate again in 2019, this time with their family and friends. In addition, Nick and Brielle had their beautiful baby girl, bought a house and have overcome job changes, sleepless nights, and working full-time all while planning their All Saint’s Chapel Ceremony and The Stockroom at 230 wedding.

We photographed Nick and Brielle’s maternity session pre-Emmy at the end of 2018 and have watched them transition effortlessly from newlyweds to parents. Getting to photograph their wedding was the best way to celebrate and we count ourselves so blessed that we made lifelong friends as a result.

Patrick and I loved starting the day as the ladies were getting ready, transitioning to spend time with Nick and his guys all at the Hampton Inn and Suites. Nick and Brielle had their first look at All Saint’s Chapel, spending a few quiet moments together before the ceremony. Their first look together was so sweet, setting the tone for their beautifully sentimental ceremony. We journeyed downtown and spent time at the top of the Dillon and around CAM. Their reception was full of energy and laughter and we loved that Carly Rae Jepsen filled the dance floor and flower petals were tossed in the air during the choruses of songs. ¬†This wedding was such a wonderful day, and we hope you enjoy Nick and Brielle’s sentimental and energetic day.

Emersyn is a diva and we could not get enough of her!

Their first look!!!

These two are perfect together! Also, can we talk about Brielle’s eyes?!
