Real Couples | Nicole and Tom

This sweet, sweet couple is getting married in less than a month! Nicole contacted me a few months ago because she hit “the wall”. The infamous wedding planning wall; where making decisions is no longer fun anymore and if one more person asks for your opinion you will freak out. She had gotten to the point where she needed to book a florist. Guys, if you don’t know flowers then flowers are very overwhelming. That was Nicole. We met for our consult and she pulled out The Knot color swatch chart and started obsessing between these two shades of purple. I think when I grabbed the colors away from her, told her to take a big breath, and that none of that was needed she felt a million times better. So here we are with a booked florist, all decisions made, and just finishing up the last minute decor items! These two are so in love and I can’t wait for their wedding day!! (Also, can we talk about their adorable snowy engagement session?

 How did you two meet? 

We met in high school math class. He sat next to me and thought I was cute so he asked my friend for my number. And we haven’t stopped talking since 🙂

How did he propose? 
He proposed with a scavenger hunt on November 27, 2015 (Black Friday). Black Friday is my favorite day of the year and I went shopping with my mom and sister in the morning. Then Christine (his sister) met up with us and we went to go get our nails done. He had a dozen glitter dusted roses waiting for me at the nail salon with the first clue. I had two other clues and then I found him waiting for me at the end of the scavenger hunt. He proposed in front of a fireplace at a local winery it was so perfect. (Guys, I love this, like, more than I can tell you)

What do you think will be your favorite part of your wedding day?
 I think my favorite part of our wedding day will be having everyone we love in the same room at the same time. I’m excited to see everyone dancing and drinking and eating and having a really good time in Pennsylvania all because Tom and I fell in love!
Can you provide some planning advice to brides in the thick of it right now? (Disclaimer: I did not tell her to say this)
My planning advice would be definitely DEFINITELY have a wedding planner. If you’re a bride like me and can’t stand up for yourself, you need a wedding planner. Even if you can stand up for yourself, it gets really overwhelming and things you didn’t think would take a lot of effort- do. Sara has really made the whole wedding planning process so much easier and more enjoyable! Tom and I say all the time we don’t know how this wedding would have happened without Sara! I also suggest using Vistaprint! The call service is amazing. They can design you anything you want and it’s so affordable! I’m a little obsessed with them!

What are you most looking forward to about married life?
We’re most looking forward to being able to officially call each other husband and wife. We are also looking forward to having a partner for the rest of our lives, in good times and bad we will always have each other, no matter what. It might sound stupid but wedding planning has definitely taught us we need to be a team and be on the same page. It definitely helped us grow as a couple and has made things outside wedding planning easier because now we know how to balance each other’s strengths and weakness and it really showed us that we function better together than apart. (Can you see why I love them? They get it. Your wedding is so much more than one day. It is your start to forever. Your marriage means so much more than one day)
Stay tuned for their beautiful wedding day at Wyndridge Farm!
