Tropical Florals and Waterfront Sunsets at Sailwinds Park

September 6, 2018

Josh and Dara’s bright + bold celebration is filled with coastal vibes and modern details. The fern and protea-infused bouquet is bursting with color, and this couple’s fun-loving attitude is practically pouring out of this gallery. And as if that wasn’t enough to win us over, there’s both pizza and burrito bars! YES. PLEASE.

From Jade Nikkole PhotographyBack in December of 2015, I met Josh and Dara the day after Nick and I moved to Maryland! It was so exciting to know someone here in Maryland before we even got here and I could not be happier that it was Josh and Dara. Our second night in Maryland was spent with them exploring Annapolis and finding our favorite restaurant, The Iron Rooster! Fast forward to last summer when I got a text from Dara asking about wedding package information and you can not even imagine how much of an honor it was that they wanted me to capture their special day!

Josh proposed to Dara in front of the Eiffel Tower at sunrise, with their friends and family just off to the side to witness this life changing moment. Major brownie points for Josh here… Now after 5 years of being together, Josh and Dara are MARRIED!!

One of the most touching moments of the day was right after the father/daughter dance. Dara had no idea what was about to happen. About halfway through the song, the DJ announced one by one, everyone who has made an impact in her life to dance with Dara. It was so beautiful and sentimental!

    How come you never list the Officiant’s name in these posts. They are one of the most important parts (THE WEDDING CEREMONY) of the whole wedding day. You list everyone else. Doesn’t make any sense.
