Nichole and Robert’s love story began after a weekend with friends in the Poconos back in 2012. The more they discovered about each other, the more they realized they had in common, and their relationship evolved. When it came time for Bob to propose, he took Nichole to his favorite lake, walked her out to the dock, and popped the question in one of his favorite places on earth. For their wedding, Nichole and Bob decided that they wanted to incorporate water and nature as much as possible to remind them of their lakefront proposal, vacations at Nichole’s family’s shore house, and even their current home near the Hoboken waterfront. They found the perfect spot at the Indian Trail Club in Franklin Lakes, NJ where they fell in love with the venue’s top notch food and catering as well as its gorgeous views of the lake.
Nichole and Bob planned a beautiful summer wedding full of shades of slate blue, blush, gray, and pink complete with bouquets of O’hara garden roses, ranunculus, dusty miller, silver dollar eucalyptus, and even a touch of Juliet peach garden roses. Hanging ribbons from bouquets and beautiful succulents completed the look of their wedding and made for a beautiful lakefront affair. As soon as Nichole and Robert told us that Laurie Luttrell of Laurelwood Designs was their florist, we knew it was going to be a stunner of a wedding, but nothing could have prepared us for all the details that came together to create their wedding day. Just wait until you see the bouquets, center pieces, driftwood arbor and hanging bubble candles on the venue’s chandelier!
My favorite part of the day was during Nichole and Bob’s first look. Bob couldn’t take his eyes off of his beautiful bride! I couldn’t blame him, either, because she looked absolutely stunning in a dress with delicate lace, subtle embellishments, a custom neckline, and a stunning backside. All these details came together to give her dress just enough glam for the wow factor every bride looks for in a wedding dress and I think it’s safe to say that Bob loved it. For the rest of the day, Nichole and Bob surrounded themselves with friends and family and spent the entire day completely focused on giving each other and their guests as much attention as possible.
We’re so excited to share this peek into their day today! Frankly, it was no easy task choosing our favorites of the day for this preview! I might have gone a little overboard but something tells me that I won’t be hearing any complaints =)
Nichole and Bob, we hope you are enjoying your honeymoon! We’re sure that the beaches of the Riviera Maya are just what you needed to relax and begin your life as husband and wife! We hope you got to meet the native sea turtles!! Enjoy this preview of your wedding day!
