it's no wonder that nicole & sean, who are as gorgeous as movie stars, have a story that rivals any big screen flick. the two met by chance after nicole's sister's bachelorette party when the ladies went out for a late supper and, awe-struck, sean tipped the diner server to get a table next to their's. just as in any good screenplay, the foreshadowing occurred when nicole had wondered allowed to the group, "what if i meet the man i'm going to marry tonight..." and she did.
the two celebrated their union at the rocklin park hotel. we love it when the wedding ceremony is located on the same grounds as the reception. to our own amazement, we were fortunate to have even the bridal preparation occurring in the same all-inclusive venue! nicole & sean planned a beautiful ceremony in the rose gardens of the courtyard. a special portion of the ceremony was dedicated to vows written for their adorable daughter and flowergirl, amaya, complete with her own ring. the reception was held afterward at the award-winning zinfandel grille, with a de-li-cious dinner, which is when the real party began!
congratulations on your marriage, nicole & sean! we hope you are enjoying some well-deserved r&r on the islands!
