Miami Wedding Photography
Eric and Nicole live in California but wanted to have a destination wedding here in South Florida. However, they both grew up in beautiful, sunny Florida. So when it came to wedding planning, they wanted to find a venue that would showcase that fact! Rusty Pelican has gorgeous views that reminds guests they are visiting Florida. Their wedding decor was planned using colors purple, white, and gold, meant to be elegant and in good taste. First, they got ready at Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay. Next, they did a first look and bride & groom portraits at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Last, we headed to the Rusty Pelican for their ceremony and reception.
About the Bride: Nicole is a civil engineer at Arup in San Francisco, California. She enjoys diy projects with a recent interest in refinishing furniture. Also, she loves going to the movies, running, and trying out new recipes.
About the Groom: Eric is a developer programs engineer at Google in Mountain View, California. He enjoys playing cooperative board and computer games, eating delicious food, and playing recreational ice-hockey.
How they met: They both attended the University of Florida. They met one day while playing a game of ultimate frisbee with mutual friends. After that, they connected through Facebook and eventually made their relationship Facebook official! Also, they lived in the same building so it made it very easy for them to spend a lot of time together. After Eric’s graduation he got a job in California for Google, while Nicole finished up her schooling. However, they made the long distance relationship work. Finally, Nicole graduated and moved to San Francisco to be together again.
About the Couple: Eric and Nicole always have a blast together. Whether it’s hot-air ballooning in Sonoma county or watching Survivor on Wednesday nights, the couple has fun exploring and lounging together. They are each other’s best friends and life companions.
What’s next? Eric and Nicole went on an amazing Hawaiian honeymoon. In the future they are eager to have interesting travel vacations.
