It is a privilege and a pleasure to document a love like this. Travis spent the entire wedding day with his arm around Nicole, stealing kisses when he could. Throughout the reception, he would look at Nicole so lovingly, gently kiss her on the shoulder, and continually shower her with affection. And how could he not complete love this girl? She is such a beautiful person — inside and out. She reminded me of a mini-Reese Witherspoon.
Travis has known Nicole since childhood, being good friends with her cousins. They started dating 3 years ago, after a big winter storm in Seattle that snowed in everyone for two weeks. They spent that time playing in the snow, snowboarding down the street, walking in their snowsuits to a local pub, and cuddling by the fire. A couple of years later, Travis proposed to Nicole on a snowboarding trip to Sun Valley Idaho, where he arranged a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Talk about romantic!
Hawaii holds a special place in Travis & Nicole’s hearts. Growing up, Travis vacationed with his mom and grandmother on the Hawaiian Islands. Since both of them have passed, they really wanted to say their vows in Hawaii.
Congratulations Nicole & Travis on a picture perfect wedding! You two were such a delight to photograph!
