Linden Place Wedding | Nikki & Tim

There is no better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with this feature of Nikki & Tim’s June wedding!!

Nikki & Tim’s ceremony and reception were held at the historic Linden Place mansion in Bristol, Rhode Island.  I don’t even know where to begin with just how perfectly Nikki’s vintage-chic details paired with the elegance of the mansion and the estate grounds.  I could talk about her blush pink vintage Valentino shoes, which perfectly matched her peonies that were designed by the talented Toni Chandler.  Or the hand painted wooden brocade mirror, which stood at the front of the ceremony location, and served as a guide for their guests as to the events of the day.  But, one of my favorite details were the old-school swirl lollipops that served as place cards for the reception and were “planted” in a wooden planter and surrounded by moss.  SO adorable!!!

Thank you Nikki & Tim for inviting me along to photograph your wedding day!  All of your hard work paid off because your wedding day was full of beauty, fun, and most of all love!  You two certainly know how to throw a party 😉

Nikki has naturally curly hair, I know the “grass is always greener”, but I am SO jealous!!

There really was no detail that was over looked, the broach on Nikki’s bouquet belonged to her maternal grandmother.

This handkerchief also belonged to Nikki’s maternal Grandmother.  Nikki had her Grandmother’s, Mother’s, and her own initials sewn into it and she carried it with her through out the day.  Such a perfect way to honor her Grandmother.

Nikki, you are beautiful.  That is all. 🙂This is one of my favorite pictures!! Are you kidding me with the GORGEOUSNESS?!?!?!As the girls were getting their things together I caught Nikki and Tim’s niece practicing her ballet in the mirror … she was SO excited to be apart of their day!See what I mean?!?!Another one of my favorites.  This was taken as the guys were walking up to the mansion.Katlyn joined the guys while I was with the girls.  I love how calm, cool, and collected the guys are as they get ready!Linden Place

Nikki Bourgelas - Lindsey,

I can’t thank you enough for being apart of our day and for kaitlyn taking such fantastic pictures of the boys. Your pictures are exquisit; you captured the detials and made us all look fabulous. After the day was over I realized that I was not able to truly see all the hard work and the details that I and everyone else put into the wedding because we were so busy with everyone. These pictures allowed me to see all those details and the vision that I created. I can’t thank you enough for that, now I feel like I didn’t miss anything! Lindsey, you were gracious, kind, fun, and so supportive!!!! Again, thank you for the most fabulous pictures I could have asked for, I can’t wait to see them all!!!!!

I also can’t wait to recommend you to all my friends!!! You are going to be a busy woman!

P.S. I love that you got the picture of Lily in the mirror…priceless and so adorable!

Love, Nikki (the bride)
