Candace+Nick=Destiny



“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone-we find it with another.”


It was clear from when we first met Candace & Nick that they were meant to be together! And their connection felt even stronger on their wedding day. Nick was the consummate gentleman, attentive to and delighting in his bride's every need. And the expression in her eyes each time Candace looked at her new husband was one of pure love.

Perfectly planned by the fabulous Sarah at DreamGroup with a reception at the always-lovely Sutton Place Hotel, the day started off great with a pair of pink, fluffy, Louboutins.



Love the soft pastel palette of the day.



The bride gets ready in her girlhood bedroom.





Stunning!



Dramatic aislewalk.



Nick sees his bride for the first time! Beside him is Justin, Candace's brother, who performed the very personal ceremony for the couple.



Married!



Classic portrait of a classic couple.



Into the park for some more portraits.







Gorgeous details at Sutton Place.





First Dance.



There were so many emotional moments during this wedding; Candace's father had everyone (including me!) holding back tears.

Here he is with the camera he used to photograph Candace when she took her very first step. He saved the old camera precisely for this day, to take another picture of his daughter when she took another pivotal step in her life - getting married.



Creating family history.



Of course, we had to sneak the couple out for some nighttime shots - love this moment they are sharing on the street.



Congrats, Candace + Nick!

I've been reading your blog and site for ages now.

I'm not planning on getting married for 5-10 years but when I do, you guys better still be around! ;)

So much love for your photos.

I feel the same way VancityAllie! C+L shot my classmate's New Orleans wedding and from that moment on I knew they were IT for me (if and when ...). Really, truly, no other duo compares! Beautiful set guys -- I adore the street photos! Oh so modern glam!

Dear Chris and Lynn,

Your work is simply wonderful... your composition, lighting and your ability to have your clients at ease in front of the camera are second to none in this industry.

Thank you for sharing these images and congratulations to Nick and Candace.

All the best,
