Nancy and Dan tied the knot on a gorgeous September day in 2013. The color pallet, her dress, everything came together perfectly for their special day. With personal touches, like the four-legged ring bearer and Nan’s daughter Ashlee, doing the wedding photos, the day was so memorable and beyond what they could have dreamed of. Ashlee’s company, ARH Photography did a beautiful job capturing the couple’s wedding day!
THE PROPOSAL: “Dan and I went to Florida to visit his mom. While we were there, he took me to Clearwater Beach. He told me he forgot his water in the car and would be right back. I was laying in the sun when he got back, so I didn’t see he had anything in his hand. So he say’s, ‘Hey Nan. I forgot to ask you something…will you marry me’?”
Nan’s dress looked like it was made for a lodge wedding. The fitted, off white David’s Bridal gown included a face with leaves and flowers.
ADVICE FROM THE BRIDE: “Have fun with it and don’t sweat the small stuff. Even if everything does not go perfect, don’t let anything ruin that day! Worry about it the next day.”
FROM THE COUPLE: “We chose Pine Lakes Lodge for the wedding because, the moment I saw it, I was in love! We live two hours away, were having a smaller wedding and knew it was perfect! We ended up renting the entire lodge and all the cabins, so it was a family affair!”
Cake: Nan and Dan went for original cake flavor, vanilla, but added a twist of raspberry filling.
FROM THE BRIDE “I just wish I could do it all over again. The staff was so accommodating and the venue and it’s surroundings were picture perfect! My pug Max who is no longer with us was our ring bearer. I’m so glad I have these memories of him!”
