#TBT Nicole's Wedding
Posted on Thursday, May 07 2015
In light of today being #throwbackthursday we thought it would be fun to throw it back to owners Nicole and Fondren's wedding days! First up today on the blog is Nicole. Nicole recalls her wedding day in detail with so much fondness and joy. We hope that for all of our brides to come someday as well!
Who was your designer: Reem Acra
. I wore the Olivia dress with a tulle skirt.
I like to keep things pretty simple and minimal in my day to day style, so something really ornate wouldn't have been right for me. The gown I chose had the perfect amount of sparkle and looked like something that could have been worn 50 years ago or 50 years from now. It was classic and I felt beautiful wearing it.
How did you accessorize?
I wore a gorgeous hair comb from Maria Elena bridal (coming soon to Blush Bridal!) and the diamond earrings and necklace were my wedding gifts from Michael.
Where did you tie the knot:
in my hometown of Charlottesville, VA at a beautiful winery called Pippin Hill. It's at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the fall season was just beginning.
Classic, romantic and natural. We used a lot of mercury glass, candlelight and natural colors including ivory, blush, soft greens and blues which highlighted the beauty of the venue perfectly.
Best part of the day:
It sounds corny, but the entire day was perfect. My favorite moment has to be when Michael and I took about 5 minutes to step back and watch our guests from afar - seeing friends and family from every moment in our lives joined together and having a great time was so special and it allowed us to truly take in the magic of that night. Your wedding goes by so quickly and I'm so glad we took that time to really be in the moment and appreciate everything.
If you have a fun #tbt - send it in to us! We'd love to feature you on our blog!
