We're Nikki & Chris!


This past December, we had the opportunity to photograph Emily and Matt’s winter wedding at the beautiful Little River Farms Georgia. This weekend was an absolute dream to photograph. Not only because of the beautiful venue, but also because Emily and Matt were the absolute sweetest to photograph. These two have been together since middle school, and have quite literally grown up loving each other. Their love not only for each other, but also for those around them was so evident. It was such an honor to photograph such a beautiful story. I am so excited to share their day with you all.

Getting Ready | Hotel Avalon

Emily and Matt spent their morning at the Hotel Avalon, where we met them to photograph details and prep moments. I LOVED how Emily and Matt included their sweet pup, Romeo on their invitations (which were custom made by one of Emily’s family members) Fun fact! Romeo even got to be part of Emily and Matt’s proposal in St Augustine, which we also photographed 🙂 

After getting ready at the hotel, it was time to head toward the venue.

We absolutely loved the experience of working with the team at Little River.

The Decor | An Elegant Evening Winter Wedding 

Emily and Matt went with a classic, neutral color palette for their wedding which included champagne bridesmaid dresses, white florals, and a beautiful display of greenery covering the fireplace. Their décor was the perfect way to bring in an elegant, black tie feel. It truly felt opulent and rich and I loved how they brought in the richness to the winter season.
