Ciera and Nicholas
While a cloudy sky may have worried some bride and grooms, Ciera and Nicholas didn’t seem to mind as the rain waited patiently until the ceremony had ended, to fall on their Madeira Beach wedding. Instead, the couple kissed, smiled, and laughed throughout their day. Regardless of the weather, the ceremony left no dry eye in the audience of Ciera and Nicholas’ outdoor ceremony.
Ciera and Nicholas first met in middle school, but it wasn’t until after high school, where their love began. They have been together for six years and engaged for one year before their wedding. The beach holds a special place in their heart for this couple. Based in Las Vegas, Nicholas and his family took yearly summer vacations to Madeira beach. His family fell in love with the ocean and it even became the place that Nicholas took his first steps as a baby. When Ciera and Nicholas were dating, she joined along for their trip as well. Falling in love just as deeply with both her love of Nicholas and his family and the ocean. Ciera and Nicholas were planning to elope, however, circumstances changed. This past year, Nicholas’ mom passed away due to cancer, they knew her favorite place was the ocean and decided that there was no better place to have their ceremony and to have her there in spirit. The ocean became the place where many of their memories reside. It was the place where Ciera and Nicholas became boyfriend/girlfriend, where the couple got engaged and now, the place they got married.
We captured their entire day, from the couple getting ready to their first pictures in the sunset as husband and wife.
