A Romantically Gorgeous Wedding at The Carlisle: Nicole + Danny

They just go together.  Nicole and Danny are two puzzle pieces that are perfectly fit, one to the other.  They are on the exact same page in life, and this is what makes life together so exciting for these two.  On the day they decided to make it official in front of family, friends and their adorable daughter– it was pretty close to perfect.  Similar to the exact day they met a few years ago.  As fate would have it, they each were hired, and started a weekend job at a restaurant on the same day.  They saw one another, talked later that night, and the rest…is history.

When I arrived at the hotel and knocked on the partially opened door, all the girls were busy getting ready.  The bride-to-be was already ready, relaxed, and just taking every moment in.  Her smile lit up the entire room as she talked with her best friends and sipped bubbly.  A little while later, she slipped into the most perfect ivory gown, and was ready to go see her groom-to-be before getting married.  The day was a celebration of a lifetime love.  The beautiful ceremony was full of happy tears, and forever promises.  And the night was full of heartfelt toasts of two families becoming one, more bubbly, and two people who know how to throw one great party.

Nicole and Danny, I don’t exactly know how to express my gratitude for your friendship.  Your love is beautiful, and I can’t wait to see all the wonderful things life has in store for you three as you start a new exciting journey.  May you always remember this special day,  and the special love that you share.  Wishing you all the happiness in the world… XO, Annie
