Sometimes love can be right under your nose and you wouldn’t know it. Nicolette & Ryan went to the same high school, but funny enough didn’t know each other until they worked at a Hardware store together. Once they were on the schedule together, they began to talk and really hit it off. A few years later, Ryan proposed to Nicolette by slipping a ring on her finger while she slept. He woke her up telling her she was going to have a good day. Nicolette, uncertain why he would say this cause she had to start getting ready to go to work, went in the bathroom to wash her face and low and behold, sees a ring on her finger. She turns around and Ryan is kneeling and proposes.
Nicolette and Ryan had a beautiful wedding day. We started the day at Nicolette’s aunt’s house where all the girls were getting ready. It was so neat getting to do a first look with both the Bride’s mom and dad. When Nicolette turned the corner, you could hear a pin drop in the room. Such an awesome moment!
We met up with Ryan and the guys outside of St. Joseph Church in Stuyvesant. Ryan was all smiles and his guys cracked jokes left and right.
Their reception was held at Crystal Cove. The head chef does a big announcement to open the dinner buffet, which is very neat. It is something really interesting that they pride themselves on. I have to say Nicolette was seriously on the dance floor the ENTIRE night. She loves to dance and we even spied Ryan breaking out a move every now and then.
We had such an awesome time with these two love birds. We wish you both all the best Nikki and Ryan!!
