A romantic wedding at Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy
There are so many parts of the wedding day that I love, but I have to say that one of my favorites has quickly become the first look between the couple. First looks are a way for the couple to spend a quiet moment together before all of the wedding festivities begin. When a groom beholds his bride, it can be a lot to take in - the emotion and the excitement can be overwhelming. A first look can provide a beautiful space for the couple to share in that emotion together without hundreds of eyes staring at them. Lauren and Kyle’s wedding at Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy was the perfect location for their special moment together. The expression on Kyle’s face when he saw his bride is one that I will never forget!
A special day, surrounded by close friends and family
Lauren and Kyle met back in 2017 through a close mutual friend. Their social circle centers around rugby, which they both play and is a big part of who they are as a couple. This was a destination wedding for Lauren and Kyle. Families had flown in from all over for the couple’s wedding at Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy - New York, California, Philadelphia, and a couple of other states. You could tell that family was important to them. The smiles and tears that were shared throughout the course of the day just showed how much everyone cared for each other and the couple.
The evening ended with the couple being escorted out into the night with huge smiles and a sparkler exit. I had such a blast photographing this couple for their special day and I wish them well in their journey ahead together!
Making it even more memorable, this wedding at Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy was also featured on Wandering Weddings. You can see more by reading their recent blog, How to Plan the Ultimate Post Elopement Party!

Before you jump into the photos, check out what this couple had to say about working with me:
"Nikk shot both our engagement photos and our wedding and we couldn't be happier. Nikk is able to create an almost instant level of comfort and familiarity with you at your shoots. His eye is also unreal. He captures so many unique angles and shots that you couldn't imagine seeing. He truly creates works of art with his work. We also used his associate program to have an extra shooter on the day of the wedding. They are just as professional and great as Nikk was. Highly recommend you work with Nikk and his team."
