Deanna + Nick | a colorful Inn at Bay Harbor wedding

If you remember their engagement session, you will remember Deanna + Nick are the ca-uuuuutest!  Their colorful Inn at Bay Harbor wedding was a day for the books.  Their love is infectious and the way Nick smiles when he see D walk into a room makes you melt just as much as the giggly laugh she gives him.  Seriously makes your heart bust kind of love.  Their day was the perfect summer day – a stunning beach side ceremony followed by the ultimate dance party.  As usual, Jen House Design blew my mind with their florals – in fact, I started photographing D’s bouquet that was on another level, only to find that was the BRIDESMAID bouquet!  The Bride’s bouquet was unbelievable and I couldn’t stop laughing that the bouquet that initially blew my mind wasn’t even the main one!  So many laughs, so many smiles and these two brought me in like family.  Thank you both for an unforgettable day!  I love your love and am so thankful to have met you both!  xo, e

Their wedding in three words

magical, romantic, FUN


Deanna’s favorite memory of the day:

There’s too many to choose a favorite! I’d say the moment I saw Nick standing at the end of the aisle. I was so nervous that my entire body was shaking, but the minute I rounded the corner and locked eyes with him, everything was ok. I was smiling ear to ear and in that moment, was just so entirely happy to be marrying the man of my dreams.


Nick’s favorite memory of the day:

Seeing her walk down the aisle. I was overwhelmed with how beautiful Deanna looked and how proud I felt about what she had accomplished in putting together the wedding. I know how hard it was and there she was, looking beautiful and everything looked incredible. I just felt so proud.


Wedding planning advice for newly engaged couples:

Get a wedding planner! It makes the process so much more enjoyable and relaxing. There are so many decisions to be made, and having an expert guide you is a true life saver. Also, make sure you do what you want at the end of the day. You’re going to get input from everyone, but stay true to what you and your fiance want the day to be like. And lastly, hold hands during the entire reception and don’t leave each other’s side. It’s easy to get separated and the day is about you two, so stick together so you can enjoy every moment!
