Kody & Nikki, ahh two great friends of ours that just tied the knot. When they asked us to shoot their wedding day, we were stoked. (And of course they asked us to attend as friends & hangout, which has become a common theme this year haha!) Their wedding was a FREAKIN BLAST. My favorite part, which I think I told a million people at the wedding, was the venue. When I spoke to Nikki a year previous to their wedding about the venue, she described it as “some random tree farm.” So, of course, I was expecting not too much, which is fine with us, we love the people more than the venue. But then we showed up to this so called “tree farm” and my jaw dropped. I felt some serious enchanting forest vibes and was totally enthralled by the giant glass house with twinkling lights. It was SO beautiful inside there, especially during blue hour when the candlelight lit up the room in warm hues!
Nikki & Kody started their day off with a non-look first look. They read each others letters, held hands and laughed awkwardly as we all stared at them Oohing & Aahing. Nikki was surrounded by her close friends and lots of champagne, while Kody was bro-ing but with his best buddies & Brandon. It was a cool September day, surrounded by trees and some of Keswick & Sutton’s finest.
On top of it all, Nikki & Kody had a blast. I can say this confidently as I got to witness almost every single moment of their day first hand. I remember Nikki saying to me that she wished the night would never end. I couldn’t have agreed more. We were all serenaded at the end of the night when Kody & Nikki danced on each other to the catchy ‘Downtown’ tune by Macklemore. All of us surrounded them and sang along as the night was explosive with so much energy & booze, lots and lots of booze. I may have been lucky enough to put down my camera at the end of the night and get to party with all of these incredible people thanks to Brandon!
Without further ado, here is Kody & Nikki’s Drysdale Treefarm Wedding. It’ll put a smile on your face and remind you of how awesome life is when you choose to live in the moment & love full heartedly.
