The Alfred Dupont Building Wedding: Nikki & Jon

Feb 4, 2014

I’m super excited to share this wedding on the blog today. About three months ago I had the incredible honor of photographing the wedding of Nikki Stecich and Jon Jay, a St. Louis Cardinals player! It was one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever done and working with Nikki and Jon has been awesome!

The wedding was going to be late in the afternoon so one of the things we decided in advanced is that they were going to have a portrait session a few days or weeks after the wedding, so they could dress up again as on their wedding day and take pictures. They selected one of my favorite places in Miami, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens where we spent a couple of hours on a very cold afternoon on early January. We had a great time and it was the best way to capture those beautiful portraits with natural lighting and outdoors without all the stress of a wedding day.

Nikki and Jon’s wedding ceremony was at Saint Jude Melkite Catholic Church and in my opinion one of the churches in Miami with best lighting to shoot. The reception was at The Historic Alfred I Dupont Building where the celebrated with family and friends and partied all night long! So much fun and beauty! I hope you enjoy it…

With Love, Lara
