Picking a wedding location in Texas can be a challenge; there are simply so many great options to choose from! I love photographing all the epic venues for city weddings in Austin, like this modern wedding at the LINE hotel or this wedding at Palazzo Lavaca. But what if you could have your big day at a wedding location that marks the very start of your journey together?
Enter: The Belmont. Starring: Michael & Eric.
Michael & Eric first met on the dance floor at this venue nine years ago. They currently live in New York, but they wanted to celebrate the start of their marriage in the place where it all began. They brought over all their friends and family to have the time of their lives in Austin, Texas!
The whole bridal party wore suits, and I could not have been more about it. The greenery in their bouquets created a beautiful contrast with the dark suits. And can we talk about those tambourines!?
This couple had one of the most heartfelt wedding vows I've ever heard. That says a lot, because as a photographer, you hear quite a few! The way they exited the ceremony was completely in style of the whole day: they danced their way down the aisle. If you've met each other on the dance floor, your wedding day simply has to feature some crazy dance moves!
They did everything their own way, and made the day one big party. From the time both grooms were getting ready to the craziest dance floor at the end of the day. If you're whipping out wigs by the time the beat drops, I'd say your reception has just been raised to epic proportions.
I had so much fun capturing this incredible couple that I still miss this day! Luckily I can look back at their wedding photos whenever my week needs an energy boost, because Michael and Eric are nothing short of electric together.

Before you jump into the photos, check out what this couple had to say about working with me:
"Nikk was among the first vendors that we booked, and without a doubt, it was one of the best decisions ever. My husband, Eric, and I were really invested in securing a good photographer, and Nikk exceeded all expectations. We first discovered his work and were struck with his ability to capture beautiful and authentic moments. Once we met Nikk, we realized that this skill comes, at least in part, from his wonderful personality. Nikk is grounded, inviting, and fun, and those traits made us feel at home and allowed us to sit back and enjoy the ride, while he managed to capture the natural progression of emotions and interpersonal connection across our wedding day. To work with someone who is nice and kind while also being incredibly talented is a true win-win in my book. Thank you, Nikk, for making us feel special and for providing story of our wedding day across a lovely collection of photographs!"
