Nicole, who is a teacher, and Collin, a nurse, started dating after they met through mutual friends. Eventually, life took them their separate ways. Several years later, they reconnected and rekindled the friendship that they once had. One night, on their way back from dinner, Collin took a slight detour to Nicole’s favorite spot on a hilltop. As they sat down on the quilt decorated with lights, he asked her to marry him.
Nicole and Collin were married at the Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth, Texas. They had their reception at the beautiful 809 at Vickery in the historic district in Fort Worth. Nicole wore a long lace La Sposa gown by Lewisville Bridal Boutique. Some of the bride and groom’s family members weren’t able to attend. So, in honor of those that couldn’t be there, empty seats were reserved during the ceremony.
At the reception, guests were able to customize popcorn, from sweet to savory, at a popcorn bar and enjoy popsicles from Steele City Pops. Guests were also treated to games such as Cornhole and life size Jenga. The 4-tier wedding cake with C-topper and Groom’s 2–tier stethoscope cake with chocolate covered strawberries were both made by Creative Cakes by Monica. At the end of the night, the guests sent off the bride and groom with sparklers before they were whisked off to their honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Use a wedding coordinator or make sure that the venue has one so that you don’t have to worry about the timing and flow of the events for the reception! At the end of the day of the day, you are married and that’s all that truly matters.
