Party animals indeed.  Nick and Haylie’s fantastically fun wedding at the Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles, CA was one of the most unique I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting.  They infused their free spirited, quirky personalities into the entire event.  It was curated for maximum fun starting with these incredibly fabulous animal masks.  And their wedding hashtag…..well it was #wurstweddingever….A really fun play on the fact that Nick and his family are deeply rooted in the bratwurst industry.  So yes you guessed it, we noshed on delicious dogs and sweet potato fries for the evening, but not before these two “cut the cheese”….literally, they cut their cheese wheel cake.  Yum!

I have a strong feeling that there is going to be a lot of fun, laughter, and love in the future for these two.  Congrats, Haylie & Nick!






What a fun wedding! And such a gorgeous color palette!
