Cristy and Nick are married!!!! You may remember these two from their winter engagement session in Delphi, Indiana. (You can view that HERE.) Cristy and Nick were set up by Nick's best friend Jeff around 8 years ago. They first met at the Haunted Jail in Columbia City, Indiana. Only two people were allowed to go through the jail at a time so Cristy and Nick ended up going through together. Fast forward a few months later and Cristy and Nick went on their first date. They hit it off and the rest is history! Last October Nick asked Cristy for her hand in marriage. They had the perfect fall day, pumpkin patch and corn maze at Exploration Acres and then a nice dinner. When they got back home, Nick proposed and of course Cristy said yes!
Cristy and Nick dreamed of a fall wedding and their wedding certainly fit that bill! They held their ceremony at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Lafayette, Indiana. Faith plays a big part in their relationship and they wanted to make sure they included in a nuptial mass. Their reception was at the beautiful Vintage Oaks Banquet Barn in Delphi, Indiana and it was perfect for their fall theme. They covered their reception in gourds from Nick Aunt's garden and lots of sunflowers, daisies, roses, and bells of Ireland.
A few things that made Cristy and Nick's wedding extra special were their family and friends. They had so many special touches incorporated in their wedding. Nick's Aunt grew all the gourds for the wedding, Cristy's family made all of the desserts for the wedding- her mom made the cupcakes and creme horns, her grandma made sugar cream and pumpkin pies, and her Aunt made the buckeyes, and the couple and their friends and family came together and made the floral arrangements and bouquets. But that's not all! Cristy's bridesmaid's surprised the couple with a choreographed dance and Nick's groomsmen brought a Dinosaur to the reception. Cristy's dad also did something special, he surprised her by writing a song for their father daughter dance and had a friend sing and play the guitar while they danced.
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from their wedding below!
