Nick & Jamie | A Waunakee Ceremony & Devils Head Resort Wedding
I’ve been SO blessed this year with amazing couples and Nick & Jamie are no exception to that trend! Friends since 8th grade and dating since their senior year in high school, this duo has been waiting a long time for their wedding day and let me tell you — it was perfect.
When Jamie first emailed me about shooting their wedding, I felt an instant connection with them as a couple. As some of you may know, my husband Ben & I spent our entire dating relationship living in different states. The distance was hard but it brought us closer together & made us cherish the time we had together even more. For that reason, I knew exactly how strong Nick & Jamie’s relationship was when she told me their story. While they both pursued degrees in engineering and medicine, Nick & Jamie traveled the distance for each other and made their relationship a priority. Over the course of 5 years, they never lived in the same area code but that didn’t stop them from developing an inseparable bond. Now that they are FINALLY living in the same state, Jamie told me that seeing each other every day is something they will never take for granted.
The wedding day started at Jamie’s parents house where I was greeted with a HUGE smile & hug. Jamie radiates happiness and after seeing her surrounded by her bridesmaids, I could tell that Jamie is adored by everyone she meets. After Jamie slipped on her wedding gown, we stepped outside to read a letter that Nick had given her AND letters that they had both written to Jamie’s parents — how cool is that?! During their first look, Nick turned around with the biggest grin on his face when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time. As we were taking formal pictures, I noticed how CALM both Nick & Jamie were as they prepared for the ceremony and I can’t help but think that was partly because they were surrounded by their entire family and very closest friends. I think it’s so amazing that both sides of the family + friend groups are so tightly knit!!!
Apparently being high school sweethearts runs in Jamie’s family — both Jamie’s sister & parents married their long time loves! From day one, Jamie has told me how much she admires her parents marriage and their love is something she’s looked up to since she was a little girl. After spending the day with both families, it’s evident that Nick & Jamie’s relationship follows the same path that their parents do – a foundation built on a deep love, respect, and adoration for each other.
Nick & Jamie, I’m SO happy to have documented your wedding day — you guys are the best. xo
The biggest grin!!!! <3
Such a beautiful group of girls — and those colors?! To die for.
Jamie, you are stunning!!!
You can tell the best man is super excited about this union haha ;)
I LOVED seeing how Nick & Jamie’s friends celebrated after they said “I Do”!
One of Nick’s best friends was just deployed overseas so they FaceTimed him right after the ceremony!!!! Such an amazing thing to have him there, even if it was just virtually.
I LOVE these colors in these next few!!! <3
