Mike and Nicole: Married | Temecula Wedding Photographer | Alicia Q. Photography

 

I love weddings.  Maybe it's because I didn't have one of my own or maybe it's because cake is my favorite food (it is!).  In any case, I adore weddings and photographing them brings me so much joy.  That's why I had no problem booking Mike and Nicole's big day last minute.  And by last minute, I mean we had a phone consultation Thursday, the contract was signed Friday, and they became husband and wife on Saturday.  I'm really happy I was able to work with them and witness the love they share.  They reminded me of a pair of giddy teenagers getting ready to go on their first date without a chapperone.  Cute, right?  And if a super sweet, doting couple wasn't enough, a tue American super hero even made an appearance.  Pastor Mike pulled out a Superman Snuggie during the ring exchange to demonstrate that not even the Man of Steel could break the committment of a husband and wife.  Needless to say, Mike and Nicole's guests loved the comedy bit and I have to respect a man who will wear a "blanket with arms" in 100 degree heat.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from this special day.  I hope you enjoy-- and remember, if Mike and Nicole get 25 different people to comment on this blog post, they'll receive a mounted 11x14 print of their choice.  Thanks everyone!

The first look.
