Abby + Ross | Hueston Woods Intimate Spring Wedding


Timing is everything and sometimes life takes a while to circle back around to the one you were meant to be with. That is exactly what happened with Abby and Ross! These two are childhood friends who were separated by life but found one another again as adults… and now they’ll be growing old together!

Abby and Ross planned an intimate wedding with just their closest family and friends at Hueston Woods State Park. The spot was a perfect homage to Abby’s childhood. So many memories with her family were born at this park as she would spend time there growing up. Ideally, as Abby was marrying one of her childhood best friends, it was the perfect space to the start the next chapter of her life.

Wanting to keep the day about them, they opted to keep the ceremony small and have the third person of the childhood trio to officially marry them. Jordy was beyond honor to have been asked with a huge honor of some of the most important people in his childhood.

Of course, they had to have their best fur kid around for the ceremony! He was happy to be around mom and dad, while enjoying the sun!

Funny moment…. while throwing bird seed seems like an amazing idea at the time, the bride may or may not have made a comment about some landing in her mouth!

One of my (Nicole’s) favorite parts of a wedding day, is the time I get to spend with the couple for their portraits. But seeing how much Ross was in awe of Abby all dolled up in her wedding dress made things even better. The entire time, he couldn’t take his eyes off of her! Overly in love couples makes wedding days extra special.

If anyone has ever worked with Nicole… she always says “One more and then I’m done” but in reality, there is always more! This is an example of when she said they were done, but couldn’t help herself and asked them to share a sweet kiss… and the Nailed It!!!!
