Monica & Cedric-Married!

September 4, 2013

I left Monica and Cedric’s wedding on Sunday with the fullest heart, comfort in knowing that there is absolutely no doubt that these two are meant for each other.

You can see it in Cedric’s eyes every time he looks at her. Every. Single. Time.

I’m so thankful for the friendship I’ve found in Monica and Cedric. They welcomed me with open arms, and were the best kind of clients to work with. The kind that become friends even after the wedding day has past.

Their wedding took place at The Dominion Club this past weekend, and much like the couple themselves, was completely gorgeous and full of class. Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0001Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0003 Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0004These shoes! Oh my goodness, be still my sparkle loving heart! Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0002What more could a girl want on her wedding day than a lace mantilla veil, glittery heals, pearls, and a handsome groom? Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0005 Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0006 Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0007 Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0008I adore these all white florals from Black Creek Flowers.

This was a man who couldn’t wait to take her as his wife! Monica & Cedric_Dominion Club Wedding_Virginia Wedding Photographer_Nikki Santerre_0037I made a little cameo here. They’re probably thinking, “You want us to laugh at you? Yeah right, girl. You’re not that funny!” I love Ashley’s perspective on these shots. Huge shout out to Ashley Link of V.A. Photography, my AMAZING second shooter. She was my rock during this wedding, and I don’t know what I would have done without her!
