Romantic Maples Spring WeddingMolly + Nick

Oh Molly and Nick… I can’t think of  a cuter pair of sweethearts! After their laughter-filled Davis engagement session, I could not wait to capture their nuptials at The Maples.

9 years into their love story, their big day was a marriage of their city and country styles. As always, Events By Rebecca brought their gorgeous vision to life.
