Nicole is a girl who knows what she wants and what she wants is (in her words), “A Wow Factor.” Well, Nicole I think you manged WOW with your Newport Mansions Wedding! She may be dainty, but Nicole is a force to be reckoned with and when she sets her sights on something she goes out there and gets it. She set her sights on Dave- check! She set her sights on her dream wedding in Newport- check! She set her sights on having photos at the most beautiful Newport mansions, check and check. We were so happy to be able to help Nicole make her wedding and photo dreams a reality! She’s met her match in Dave who lets her run a little wild with her ideas, agreeing or conceding to most of them and reeling her in a little when they go completely overboard. Dave is a cut up and made Nicole laugh all day. She’s super cute when she laughs and crinkles her nose. I think the motto for there life together should be: Big Plans and Big Laughs!
Venue and Caterer: Belle Mer, Photo Locations: Rosecliff & The Elms, Hair and Makeup: Frank Antonio Studio, Videographer: Artistic Wedding Films, Band: Kahootz, Invitation: Bella Figura, Cake: Confectionery Designs
