Nikki & Jon’s wedding day was so unique and so much fun! They had a beautiful wedding planned at Paradise Park in Cottage Grove. Of course they didn’t plan for the rain but it amazingly gave us breaks at the perfect time allowing for the perfect fall day photos.Their dog, Jordy, completely stole the show to be honest… he was dress to impress and howled with excitement as his two people said, ‘I do’.
We stopped at the Main Street Depot and signed the marriage license of course! A super chill local bar that is very near and dear to Jon & Nikki. Then we headed to their High Noon Saloon reception. WOW! What a party, the food, the desserts, the caricature artist!! EVERYTHING was so fun and EVERYONE was ready to have a great time. Jon & Nikki hosted an amazing reception for their closest friends and family!
Tell me about your favorites moments from your wedding day?
Nikki – I think my favorite part was walking down the isle with my dad to the man of my dreams and the cutest ring bearer ever! I also really enjoyed getting ready in the morning because all my hard work was coming together and everything was so surreal and I was able to enjoy my time with my girls and my mom and Jon’s mom.
Jon – My favorite moments were when Nikki and her father were walking down the isle together to meet me and when we walked into the reception seeing all our friends and family.
This moment of Nikki’s Father locking eyes with Nikki’s Mom as he walked Nikki down the aisle spoke right to my heart. I couldn’t love this photo more if I tried.
I think we can all just go ahead and agree that Jordy is the best cheering wedding dog that ever existed!
Nikki, your day was planned so perfectly but it rained and TORNADO’D and you both took it in such stride. Do you have any advice for other brides who might have a rainy wedding day too?
My advise would be, don’t sweat the small stuff! Especially rain or any bad weather, there is nothing you can do about the weather, if anything it just makes for a better story for your wedding day! And I don’t think the rain ruined my day at all! It may have made it a little more challenging but it all turned out great!
Try to enjoy and embrace everything, everything went so fast that there is so much that I don’t remember until people tell me things.
Thank you so much Nikki & Jon, your wedding was so fun!
