Graceann and Kyle

Wednesday, January 18, 2012
































When a couple chooses "magical, whimsical and happy" as the most important elements of their wedding, you can be sure their celebration will be just that. It's hard to deny the magical effect of a cupcake truck, after all! 

Graceann picked her Lucky Luxe handkerchief invitations after scouring stationers for something that would set the tone of their celebration; the reply card suggested arriving "with bells on"! In addition to custom invitations, the couple created a deeply personal wedding ceremony, including three private minutes to exchange their most personal vow (isn't that an amazing idea?).

The bride wore a classic lace gown by La Sposa paired with pearls and a lace-trimmed veil, while bridesmaids wore floor-length Amsale gowns in blush pink. Graceann's peony, hydrangea, dusty miller, and astilbe bouquet was wrapped in lace from her mother's veil and pinned with a vintage cameo from her father–a perfect something borrowed. Posey Floral also designed the floral strewn altar and the stunning table arrangements. Tucked in vintage milk pitchers, mason jars, mercury glass and lanterns, the flowers were nothing short of spectacular. 

After a ceremony on the lawn of Laguna Gloria, guests enjoyed a family style meal underneath a large oak tree. After cupcakes from Hey Cupcake!, the newlyweds enjoyed a send off prepared by their wedding coordinators, 36th St Events–bells! And on hand to capture that moment and each one before were the fabulous husband and wife team, the Nichols!
