Second Line at One Cannery Row- Nicole & Cal
This is Nicole and Cal’s wedding at One Cannery Row. There is so much that I want to say about this couple but I don’t even know how to put it into words. Shortly after I photographed their engagement session Nicole started experiencing neurological issues. She went from an extremely independent flight attendant to struggling with tremors so bad that she now has a very difficult time walking. She and Cal did not let this change their wedding day. You will see so much laughter and joy in these photos. The day of a wedding we worry about rain and things not going as planned, but Nicole, who was joking about how she was going shake down the aisle, worried about nothing. All she cared about was marrying Cal and all Cal cared about was marrying Nicole. It was extremely beautiful. Even to this day they are the most positive people that you will meet. Even though it can sometimes be impossible to find places that are easily accessible for Nicole's scooter, they still go on trips. They don't dwell and they do what they can to have a normal life. They are truly inspirational.
Some fun things to mention about their wedding- They both grew up in New Orleans so they wanted to incorporate that into their day. They had delicious New Orleans’ inspired food, started the reception off with a Second Line, and did the traditional Cake Pull.
