It’s here! Our 200th wedding!! Eeek! And what a wedding to have as a milestone, it was such a great one!!
Nicole and Matthew’s love story is one about love at first sight and their wedding day was no different! The two settled quickly on the Stone House at Stirling Ridge for their big day – it was actually the only venue they visited. I was also surprised to hear that Nicole only tried on one wedding gown because she loved it that much! As they say: when you know, you know!
I met Nicole and Matthew last year during their engagement session and knew right away that I’d love working with them. They are such a sweet couple with a great sense of humor and they can’t help but laugh and smile when they’re together. Their faces just light up when they see each other. Wait until you see their first look. They couldn’t stop smiling and hugging. I love how Nicole was so excited for Matt to see her dress since she thought it was completely different from what he expected. Speaking of her dress, I have to say that Nicole had one of my favorite dresses so far this year. Her Rosa Clara dress had just the right amount of lace and was perfectly elegant and timeless with just the right amount of fun – I love when brides have fun dresses and this one had such pretty movement and was just perfect for twirling!
As for their wedding style and decor Nicole is pretty crafty so she put a lot of time and effort into the design of their big day. She created the signs, decor, and even the Ketubah! Matt said he contributed love and support to the planning and design process, ha… these two are so fun. For their wedding colors they chose dusty rose, navy and gray accents. Everything came together perfectly for these two and it was such a beautiful day! Here is a peek at their wedding – enjoy!
