Nicolette & Michael's Elegant Outdoor Wedding

Nicolette & Michael-Cinematic Highlight from Russell John Films on Vimeo.

It was like a scene out of a movie watching Nicolette and Michael during their wedding sparkler send-off. The pair tied the the knot at The Crossings at Carlsbad on April 30, 2016.

The proposal – Michael took Nicolette on a romantic hike through the Torrey Pines reserve, an activity they enjoyed often. They followed a trail that led to the beach and walked along the waters edge. Suddenly, Michael handed Nicolette a stack of new business cards. She looked at the cards confused until she noticed her last name on the card was changed to Michael's last name. She was so excited that she doesn't remember saying yes, but Michael assures that she did!

Their love can even be seen in the tiniest of details. On the reverse side of Michael's tie is a love note that reads "Michael, you are all I could ever want and I love you. Love, Nikki."

Michael's first look at his bride is priceless!

You can see the excitement for the vows that were to follow.

The stylish aisle was decorated with beautiful floral designs by Moments in Bloom.

"You may now kiss the bride!"

Michael and Nicolette shared their first dance to the song "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele.

After a stunning night celebrating the love between Nicolette and Michael, their close family and friends gave them a memorable send-off with sparklers. A big thank you to this couple for inviting us to capture their special day!
