This was a wedding to remember. After years of being together, Nic and Josie were finally going to tie the knot. The event was completely made for them. No huge venue. No basic wedding traditions. Just love and celebration with their family and friends.

Weddings aren’t about traditions. They aren’t about the biggest flowers. Nic and Josie got down to the core of what a wedding was – a celebration of love and devotion.

…and an adorable dress.

Rather than traditional vows, Josie and Nic had the lyrics of AFI’s “The New Patron Saints and Angels” read during their ceremony.

I’ve seen the light that emanates from you,
and it makes me feel proud, a voice of reason above the muffling crowds.
Such will to live and you’ve got so much to give, long lost sincerity.
Lost in a world that’s been scorched to black.
Lost in myself until I finally find.
A guide in you, and gratitude is mine, I admire the way you shine.
Stare down the day from which others shield their eyes,
with complete clarity, and no trace of apathy.
So positive, and your heart you freely give, long lost vivacity.
Lost in a world that’s been scorched to black.
Lost in myself until I finally find.
A guide in you, and gratitude is mine, I admire the way you shine.
