Sarah and Nick 11.16.13 / by Bolla Photo

Sarah is one of the most organized brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with.  And it was clearly evident on her and Nick’s wedding day. The coordinating stationary, the wedding day survival kit, the perfectly rehearsed first dance, the purple in the flowers and dresses and groomsmen’s socks and flower girl’s shoes…everything added up to the entire day being beautiful and going as smoothly as, well, their perfectly rehearsed first dance.  :-)

It also didn’t hurt that Sarah and Nick had the support of some wonderful friends and family, including Sarah’s seven fabulous bridesmaids whose purple lace-back dresses beautifully echoed the lace detailing on Sarah’s own gorgeous gown. I love how the purple absolutely popped against the red and orange leaves outside St. Luke’s!

Congratulations again, Sarah and Nick! Thank you for letting us share such an amazing day with you and your friends and family.

Also, a huge thank you to my Rock-Star Sidekick, Emily of Emily Dobson Photography!
