Brent & Nichole: Uptown Normal Marriott Wedding Photos

July 30, 2019

Filed in: Weddings


Oh friends, get ready… because this is going to be one packed blog post for you guys!! We absolutely adore Nichole and Brent and we have been filled with anticipation for this sweet day for quite some time now!! From the start, Nicole and Brent have been such a complete joy for us to work with, and their wedding day was also a total joy for us to get to be a part of!!

From the very first interaction we’ve had with these two, we’ve connected so well. They even had us over for dinner at their home as we started off their wedding experience together! I mean, seriously- how sweet is that?! These two are so down to earth and kind, and their relationship is so sweet to witness… it’s so evident that they are just best friends, and they have the best GROUP of friends who just adore the heck out of these guys! Our team loved every minute of Saturday, and, unsurprisingly for anyone who knows Nicole, because of how well their day had been planned, this was one of THE easiest days we’ve shot all season long!!! 🙂

Nicole and Brent, where do we even begin?! We literally cannot believe your big day has come and gone already! It seemed, for so long, like your day was so far away- and then all of a sudden it was here. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for inviting us to be a part of this precious season of your life and relationship! We cannot wait to see where life takes you as a married couple, and we’re so happy for you both! Enjoy this little sneak peek into some of our favorite images from your beautiful day!!!
