After much anticipation and planning, the big day had finally arrived for Nick and Yolanda! All of the details came together beautifully, as did the weather that day. When we met the bride at Embassy Suites, getting final touches to her makeup (MUA Yasmein Abdulla), she was cool calm and collected.
Yolanda's bridal party had a challenge on their hands getting each other and the bride dressed. The joke of the moment was how Yolanda would get out of the dress and the end of the night (scissors??)...finally the last loop was cinched and gathered, and Yolanda was picture perfect.
Yolanda's flower girl was not the least bit camera shy. Isn't she a cutie?
Meanwhile, Nick was getting some help from his fellas AKA 'the mob squad'...watch out now!
Here are their first looks. Nick was blown away and Yolanda was overwhelmed to tears. How touching!
Yolanda and Nick had everyone's blessing, from her brother who escorted her down the aisle, to their best man and matron of honor looking on with approval and joy. Congrats! You did it!
We next headed over to the Historical Society at Delaware Park for a few shots of the Bridal Party. Yolanda looked beautiful here and Nick certainly agreed!
A little fun with the bridal party...
Then on to the Reception at Lucarelli's Banquet Hall, where everyone was in eager anticipation of the bridal party's arrival.
Now there's a happy groom! Yeah Nick, you win!!
Nick had a special dedication song for Yolanda that took everyone for surprise. Nick, we had no idea you could sing like THAT! :)
We'll end with this ring shot, a lovely symbol of the love uniting two wonderful people. Congratulations, Nick and Yolanda! Best wishes on your new life together!
