Nicole + Joe 6.20.11

When I first met with Nicole and Joe, I couldn’t help but notice how in love they were with each other.  And not the “get a room” type of love; but the sweet, “this is going to last” type of love.  Then, when I found out Joe is serving in the Marine Corps, I was totally sold on these guys!   How could I not do a wedding when the bride’s name is Nicole and the groom is in the military?!!  It was destiny. 
Since not all of us have jobs that force us to learn all the Saturday dates in each month, you probably didn’t notice that June 20th was not a Saturday — it was a Wednesday!  Yep, these crazy love birds decided to get married on a Wednesday!  The ceremony and reception was held at Shady Wagon Farm in New Hill, NC.  The bride & groom got married by the lake which provided a beautiful backdrop for guests during the ceremony.  Once Nicole & Joe were pronounced husband and wife, guests were escorted around the pond and over to the pavilion for cocktails and appetizers.  
Catering by Design did an amazing job with the food and beverages!  Plus the service was outstanding!  Great job guys!  As usual, Cinda’s Creative Cakes pulled out another amazing cake design!  I LOVED their cake topper and cute little details Nicole had her add!  Cinda also provided the guests favors with her impressive candy buffet. 
Patrick Cooke with PC Productions kept the guests entertained with music and fun games for the guests.  Patrick and his team also did a great job with purple uplighting for the barn during Nicole & Joe’s dinner!  Have I mentioned I love purple uplights?!  😉
Mel Day from Dogwood Tree Floral Designs did an amazing job pulling together Nicole’s vision for her colors.  I loved the mixing of purples, reds, and pinks! 
Thank you to Anne Alexander for taking these great shots and really capturing Nicole & Joe’s super sweet wedding day!  Enjoy!
