In this world, there are two types of men: men who belong on the cast of The Expendables, and men who wish they were on the cast of The Expendables. Here we have a groom who was once a (and maybe still is) a fitness guru, spends his workdays working with steel & iron, and pretty much casually brushed off a work-related eye injury so he could wrap up an engagement session with yours truly not long ago. But like most men, they have easily exploitable weaknesses; and in Nikko’s case, it’s his beautiful new wife Susan, along with his incredibly fascinating collection of coral. You probably didn’t see that one coming, did you? Susan & Nikko couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to exchange their vows at the picturesque West Hills Country Club in Middletown, NY. Susan & Nikko incorporated all sorts of DIY and personal touches to their outdoor wedding ceremony and tent wedding reception, which included a butterfly release (my first ever)!
