Phipps Conservatory Wedding Photography

Who knew a visit to Phipps Conservatory shortly after Nicole and Santino’s engagement would spark their imagination to plan a ‘secret garden’ inspired affair? It was the most perfect backdrop for a beautiful and intimate Phipps Conservatory Wedding.

Nicole shares some sage advice for brides planning their big day “Don’t put too much time and effort into the little details that won’t be noticed. Make it a point to take in the moments that you’ll want to remember one, five, ten years down the road. The day goes by so quickly!”

I agree wholeheartedly! At the end of the day, what matters is two people are joined together forever. Nicole and Santino’s favorite memory from their day wasn’t all the little things they planned, Nicole shared it was this:  Seeing each other for the first time as a bride and groom.
