How We Met
Jessica & Nick heard about us from Howe Farms. We have had a small number of weddings there now, and we were thrilled to be back at such a beautiful venue! Jessica and Nick had heard about the work we put into each couple’s special day and knew that they wanted to work with us almost instantly!
Jessica and Nick did not know each other long until they fell with each other and started dating. After they both met each other's families, they saw how perfectly they fit into each other’s life and knew that they were destined to be together! After a few years Nick finally popped the question, and here we are ready to help them kick off their happily ever after!
Down to Business
Our meetings with Jessica & Nick were virtual and always so fun! In between talking about their wedding, we learned about their families and things they loved to do together. Jessica told us about her large family and how they take trips together every year. They love the feel of being together and often book large mansions to house 40+ of their loving family! We loved getting to know them as people outside of their wedding plans!
The Big Day
Upon arriving at the beautiful Howe Farms, Jessica & Nick’s family had the majority of their decor set up from the night before. They had so many adorable details to everything, from personalized table numbers, a spectacular dessert table, to the cutest globe-shaped card box. Top Tier Band arrived at noon to set up their equipment on stage, which was wonderfully put together previously by Luma Designs. While setting up, there was quite a bit of rain, yet the couple still stayed so positive and happy. Jessica and her bridesmaids were all busy getting their makeup done by Makeup by MC and their hair done by a friend, Jessica Curie. All the girls looked radiant and were ready to have the most spectacular day! Luckily, the weather let up in perfect time for us to dry off the seats and help mop away any puddles that were in the aisle on top of the chapel hill. The bridal party all got dressed and were ready for Matt & Nadine Photography and Coastal Roads Videography to take breathtaking videos and photos of everyone!
Closer to ceremony time, Jessica was ready to have her first look with her father and other special family members. Sweetly Southern Cakery delivered and decorated their amazing wedding cake! Following them came Tasteful Gatherings who were incredible at setting up for the buffet and took over the kitchen in a flawless manner. As guests were arriving, we helped ensure they were shuttled to the ceremony spot and in place for us to begin. We gathered all of the bridal party and had them line up at the top of the chapel hill. We kept Jessica hidden around the corner so Nick wouldn't see, and we were SO EXCITED to see how happy she was going down the aisle to the love of her life. DJ Fernando played their gorgeous wedding music, and we watched these two love birds officially tie the knot!
Once the ceremony was over, that’s when the real party began!
The family stayed for family photos, and all the guests went to the reception hall to enjoy cocktail hour, with alcohol served by the amazing BarCart. Jessica and Nick also had plenty of time to take the most breathtaking outdoor photos together and then gathered with their guests inside Howe Farms’s gorgeous reception hall. After we introduced the newlyweds, their parents, and the bridal party, guests enjoyed Tasteful Gatherings delicious food and they danced the night away listening to Top Tier Band and DJ Fernando. We even got to witness Jessica and Nick perform a money dance with all their friends and family! We had the couple cut their beautiful (and delicious!) Sweetly Southern Cakery wedding cake and enjoy their spectacular dessert table. Towards the end of the night, people sipped on some coffee generously provided by Party Bites. The dance floor continued to rave with giant glow sticks and amazing music. It was such a party, that it was sad to have to end the night! But finally, the night ended on a spectacular note with a sparkler send-off, and we watched Jessica and Nick ride off into their happily ever after!
One thing that we couldn’t get enough of from their decor was that each table number had pictures of the couple of the age that corresponds to the table number. It was so cute seeing pictures of them from every age from babies to them today!
Happily Ever After
When we say a couple is meant to be: Jessica & Nick fit the description! Their personalities fit so well together and you can see the love they have for each other in just the way they look at one another. Best wishes to the new Mr & Mrs!
