Bowens Mills Wedding | Nicole + Ben | Associate Alyssa

Where do I begin? I don't think I have the right words to even explain how overjoyed I am for these two friends of mine to have found each other and to start their lives together. I have been friends with Nicole since we were in middle school and it is completely obvious that Nicole and Ben were meant to find each other at these exact moments in their lives. They compliment each other so well and have so many of the same interests... including both being teachers and soccer coaches (I think they will have some all-star soccer babies one day). Some highlights of the day included the truck that you will see in many of the photos; the truck belonged to Nicole's grandpa and was also in the first picture that Ben and Nicole ever took together. Nicole + Ben shared the most perfect no look right before the ceremony where they shared a prayer and letters to one another (I did all I could to hold back the tears). Nicole made her own yummy cakes.... I know... I am still wondering how she pulled all of that off! They had the cutest kiddos in their wedding and they were all their nieces and nephews. Nicole grew up visiting Bowens Mills and going on the swing and the slide on the grounds (and Nicole and I used to go on the rope swing together throughout middle school and high school, on the river that runs right behind the cider mill). Those are just a few of the highlights of their perfect day. I hope these photos show just how perfect these two are for one another and just how wonderful their day of love was. Nicole + Ben, thank you so much for allowing me to capture such an important time in your lives. Cheers!
