When locking down the perfect wedding venue, Becky and Nick planned ahead. They couldn’t go wrong with Aria Banquet Facility Thinking back on how it all started, sometimes simple is the best. Becky noticed Nick talking to one of her friends significant others, and the meeting was then arranged! This love affair was 13 years in the making. I’d have to say one of my favorite details was the table of memories past. We forget some of the phases we went through but, no one at this wedding missed out on the image of Nick in cornrows.
Wen it was time, Nick took Becky to a quaint, adorable vineyard in Coventry, CT and after a short walk through the grapevines, they sat under the giant maple for some shade, and he asked her to marry him! Now there’s a romantic right there.
This incredible duo soaking in all of the happiness shared with family friends for what was a stellar reception. I asked them to let me know what their favorite part of the day was and they couldn’t pinpoint any specific event, but it was so amazing from sun up to… well… past sundown
Here are some bullet points directly from the newlyweds

Tell us about your dress! Where did you find it, how did you choose it, how did you know it was the one? My Gintare, from the Sotterro & Midgley line of Maggie Sotterro was fate. I have loved Maggie since I was 12, I even wore her to prom. The Gintare was my top pick, but I learned she discontinued it. When I showed up at the boutique, the owner said it was the only sample they "forgot" to send to consignment . I tried others on, but when that one went on, I was done for!
Did you see each other before the wedding? If not, did you like waiting or would you have rather done it differently? Tell us why or why not! Nope! We were traditional and loved the experience!
