Nicole and Jake met walking up the aisle, and now they will become a family walking down together. Nicole has always dreamed of a fairytale wedding and that is exactly what she had. Married at the Tippecanoe Place, a mansion in South Bend that looks more like a castle, definitely fit the bill of fairytale wedding. The grounds surrounding the mansion were a beautiful scenery. Although her original plan was to have an outdoor wedding, bad weather forced everyone inside. It was okay though, because the staircase entrance was gorgeous. Nicole arrived in a horse and carriage, and after the ceremony Nicole took off with her "Prince Charming" in the carriage. Jake didn't care much about the details (except to make sure they were what Nicole wanted), but he did care about his shoes. "I had to fight her for these." he said, talking about his Puma kicks (photo below). "They are awesome." Jake is a huge Puma fan. He even wore a Puma t-shirt underneath his white button up (see reception photo below).
Every girl dreams to have the perfect wedding dress, Nicole had three. I loved each and every one of them. Her first, a princess sweetheart neckline, with a gorgeous train, she wore most of the day. The second, a tea length 50's inspired dress, was wore during the dancing. Her third, a fitted cocktail dress, was her "send off" dress. All were gorgeous!
I hope you think modern fairytale with this wedding, because it was just that!
