Last weekend my beautiful niece, Nicole, married her sweetheart, Dalton, and I had the privilege of capturing her special day.
Although Dalton & Nicole had known each other since childhood Dalton was a few years older than Nicole so they never really gave each other much thought. When they got older they both moved away and rarely ever saw each other. One day, while they were both camping with friends, they realized they might be interested in each other. It wasn't long after that they began dating. Within a few months of dating, however, they knew it was meant to be!
One crisp fall day he invited her and her family to come to his house for dinner with his family. Later that night when she went outside he surprised her with a ring and many carved pumpkins asking her to marry him!
They knew they didn't want to wait long to start their life together, so the planning began!!!!
The date was set, January 12, 2018. Not a lot of time but to plan but everything started falling into place. Unfortunately, as their wedding date was approaching, a winter storm warning was given. Meteorologists all over were saying the roads would be bad. We all immediately started praying. The day of the wedding came and we had a little ice and snow, but thankfully the roads were safe to drive on, and they had a beautiful day.
The wedding was at Sacred Stone in Fayetteville, Tn. They have a beautiful barn surrounded by rolling hills!! Although the weather outside was cold, they were setting up to have a beautiful wedding inside. Nicole wore a gorgeous ivory dress with a lace overlay and 3/4 sleeves. Her bridesmaids looked beautiful in their burgundy sequined dresses. The flower girls wore dresses with an ivory lace bodice and burgundy tulle skirt. Dalton and his groomsmen looked handsome in their navy suits and burgundy ties. The flowers were gorgeous. Lisa with Sacred Stone Florals did such a beautiful job!!
Nicole's minister, Brother Ray Davis, married them and Dalton's minister, Brother James Bridges, said a heartfelt prayer.
I am so happy for Nicole and Dalton!!! I want to wish them the most happiness as they start this next chapter of their lives together!! Congratulations!! I love you both!!
