Nicole & Wingel: A Quiet Courthouse Marriage

Nicole & Wingel Tie the Knot

At the end of November, one of my very best friends announced both her marriage and pregnancy. I was lucky enough to attend and photograph the intimate courthouse ceremony and wedding portraits. Met with a small group of friends and loved ones, Nicole and Wingel celebrated the official beginning of their next beautiful chapter. Nicole is a friend I’ve grown with for nearly eight years, and it warms my heart to see her thriving and excited about taking two very big steps.

North Broward Regional Courthouse Ceremony

The marriage took place at the North Broward Regional Courthouse. The spot was a pleasant surprise for their small courthouse marriage. We entered the ceremony room to find an arch decked out with fairy lights and flowers. Not exactly what one thinks of when they think ‘courthouse ceremony’. The North Broward Regional Courthouse made this an even more beautiful occasion.

Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens

After Nicole and Wingel officially said their ‘I do’s’, we headed over to the Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens for wedding portraits. This location was jaw-dropping; we walked around the property for hours enjoying the gorgeous scenery and gardens. Plus, the Morikami Museum itself is a fascinating part of the whole experience. These two got engaged in Japan, and it seemed only fitting that they’d want their wedding photos here. These Morikami Museum wedding photos are relaxed, informal and most of all, filled with love.

And Baby Makes Three

These photos were also used to announce the happy couple’s son, expected in May 2019. Congratulations to Nicole and Wingel on this exciting step in their journey together. I’m so excited to see what the future holds for you!
