Nikki + Bill | Geneva, NY Wedding
Nikki + Bill were married at The North Farm in Geneva, NY…a perfect barn venue close to Seneca Lake, situated on acres of gorgeous farm land. Nikki + Bill are both artists with huge amounts of talent. Nikki’s a designer for Free People and Bill’s a mixed media artist (find his work here). They’re two of the warmest, kindest, and most grounded people I’ve met. Through the potential chaos of a wedding day, they were such a calming presence…reminding the people around them why they were really there.
The day started with Bill’s family at a quaint cabin on the lake. The mood was relaxed, welcoming, and thick with a genuine spirit of love and warmth. Bill’s grandparents were there, adding to the richness of an important morning shared with family.
The girls prepared for the day in a beautiful bridal suite at The North Farm. Nikki’s bridesmaids pampered and prepped her while her mother arranged gorgeous wildflower bouquets. The North Farm owner checked in every now and then, and every interaction between she and Nikki was filled with warmth and gratitude.
The ceremony was held up a short walk behind the barns to open farm land, underneath cloudy (sometimes menacing) skies that called for rain most of the day. But not one drop fell on their day. I’ve never witnessed such a closeness and intimacy during a ceremony before. It really was less about ceremony for ceremony’s sake, and more about highlighting the deep, deep closeness Nikki + Bill obviously share. The words family and friends spoke during the ceremony affirmed their genuine spirit.
The rest of the evening was filled with gorgeous details, beautifully prepared speeches, delicious food (including the cutest ice cream truck), and more of Nikki + Bill’s intoxicating presence.
