Nicole + Brett | An Intimate Oceanfront Wedding | Salem, Massachusetts

I can’t believe I finally got to meet Nicole and Brett at their intimate wedding hosted at a beautiful home on the ocean in Salem, MA! They asked me to be their photographer last May, but for some reason, it feels like that was so very long ago! I’ve been looking forward to meeting them, and the second I walked in and saw Nicole, it felt like I had already met her a billion times before!!

Their big wedding has been pushed back to next July, but that didn’t stop them from still getting married this year! It was the perfect place and the perfect day for their closest friends and family to hang and watch them say I Do. They had a ton of family zoom in to watch all the way from Mexico, which makes me that much more grateful that we live in times where it’s easy to remote in and still experience things even if we can’t do it in person.

Nicole and Brett are so sweet, and I loved watching them have heart eyes for one another. Having the ocean and glow from the sun going down made everything that much more romantic. Nicole’s dress is drop dead gorgeous, and I loooooooved the pop of color her shoes had! And her RING!! So beautiful!

It was a smaller affair, but it was perfect. I got the opportunity to chat with some of her family members and it is always one of the best feelings when families who I have never met before can be so very welcoming.

Brett and Nicole, thank you so much for having me stop by to do some portraits for you!!! I can’t wait for next to July to celebrate you all over again!! <3
