Nicole & Eric are such a fun couple and Jay and I had a BLAST at their Mariner’s Museum wedding in Newport News Virginia!  I feel like I always say this about my couples…but I am truly so lucky that I get to work for such amazing people!!  When I met with them for the first time, we all just hit it off, right away!  I love the way they make each other laugh…and the way that Eric barely notices that anyone else is around when Nicole is in the room!  Their first look was so sweet and full of emotion…and the rest of the day was, too!  Nicole is a gorgeous woman with the most amazing eyes and she looked stunning in her gown!  They had initially planned to have an outdoor wedding, but it was going to be super cold by the time their ceremony happened so they opted to move it inside the museum!  We still wanted to do photos outside and luckily, Nicole’s Grandma let her borrow her fur stoal for the wedding…and that kept her nice an warm!  I loved all the little fall touches they had at their reception, too…from the pinecones that the guests found their names on, to the fall flowers that were on all the tables.  They also had the most amazing cake table, full of bountiful sweets and treats for their guests!  Special thanks to Veronica from VIBEvents Group, LLC. for recommending me to Nicole and Eric!  You really made this day beautiful for them!!  XOXO!
