Before the pandemic, Arby and Nikki had a clear vision for their big day: an all-white intimate wedding surrounded by lots of greenery. The couple planned and booked all their suppliers in advance, but when the pandemic hit, they were forced to make changes. The unexpected events did not stop Arby and Nikki from carrying out their dream wedding though! They were still able to get married on their original date in a beautiful bed and breakfast in Laguna.
What made this wedding story even more special was that the bride and groom used their wedding planning to grow stronger as a couple. They made all their big decisions together, helped each other stay optimistic, and bonded as they made the D.I.Y. details of their celebration. On the day of their ceremony, the weather was a mix of rain and shine, so they had to transfer their location indoors at the last minute. Even though things didn’t go exactly as planned, Arby and Nikki remained positive and grateful through it all. These images by NQ Modern Photography show that at the end of the day, this couple was still able to have the simple, intimate, and beautiful wedding that they always wanted!
