I love this quote, though not sure who to attribute it to…
Being someone’s first love may be great, but to be their last is priceless.
But… what if you were lucky enough to be someone’s first love and last love? Now that would be something to celebrate!
And celebrate they did at Nicole and Kevin’s Glen Manor wedding. N + K have been sweethearts since high school! This wedding was eleven years in the making.
One thing I love about Glen Manor is how the ladies get ready upstairs…
and so do the men… directly across the hall!
Nicole may have known Kevin an awfully long time, but there’s another fella she’s known even longer. We arranged a first look for Nicole and her dad just before she saw Kevin. Awww…
If any photo in this post makes you fall in love with Kevin, it will probably be the photo on the bottom left.
The stunning bridal party.
Nicole took everyone’s breath away. Her vision for the day was summer romance, which I think we can all agree she completely embodies.
When Kevin was in high school and he first developed a major crush on Nicole, he suffered a concussion playing soccer. At the hospital, he kept telling his family over and over, “Nicole is so hot.” That was their first exposure to the future Mrs. Kevin.
The family formals are such an important part of the day.
Making sure your parents and siblings are all together in a beautiful portrait for posterity should be a top priority!
Nicole’s father said in his toast, “When your child finds true love, a parent true happiness.” Nicole’s dad must be one happy guy.
Nicole is an excellent cascader, and speaking of cascading… her orchid bouquet is amazing!
Sweet vows on the lawn.
We love this view of the beautiful garden and Manor House.
Kevin told Nicole that the ring he was putting on her hand was a sign of his “love and loyalness.” He meant to say faithfulness.
Moments after they were married he confessed, “I just made up a word!”
Nicole replied, “I know! It was so cute, I just went with it!”
Faithfulness, loyalness… it’s all the same diff. And they’re MARRIED! That’s all that matters!
Refreshments and congratulations all around.
Summer romancing it all the way down to the water…
These two! Again with the dreamyness! Does anything say summer more than Queen Ann’s Lace?
Does anything say romance more than the way Nicole and Kevin look at each other?
And this one too- taking these photos was like eating a big piece of cake.
If I had to compare it to a flavor, lemon chiffon with raspberries I think… Delicious!
A perfectly adorable first dance.
Guess we can see where Nicole and Kevin get their dancing flair…
The apple fell right under the tree!
Night Rhythm Band… That is all.
Love this send off photo! I think it shows how much love everyone has for this amazing couple. With this kind of support system, they should be just fine!
And one more for good luck…a classic farewell shot and its modern day version! The photo on the left is of Nicole’s grandparents! She asked us to be sure to get a similar shot of her and Kevin! Bon Voyage sweethearts, we absolutely loved being a part of your epic wedding day! XO
