My cousin looked perfect, but take a look in the bottom right, the poor flower girl got stage fright and was VERY upset, so cute though!

So last weekend, specifically August 11, 2012 was my cousin Nicole's Wedding Day! This is one of those weddings people dream about when they are little- a beautiful church, stunning bride, handsome groom, loving family, great band, delicious food, dancing till midnight, and all the little details, this wedding had it ALL! Although I took their Engagement Session last fall, I only was taking pictures of my day during the wedding, so I apologize that I don't have more of the lovely couple, and they did look unbelievable!

So here was a peak at the big day. And might I stop before the pictures here to say I have the MOST handsome husband in the world! Quite the model! And learning some photography too!

What did I say? How awesome is that ceiling!

Check out the Wonder Bread Sign in the background, love it! Saint John's Church is where the Columbus Italian Festival is held every year, and also where Vince and Nicole met! She asked if anyone wanted to dance, and Vince was the one who stepped forward, and the rest is history!
