John and Nicole met randomly on a camping trip in August 2007. The following week was John’s birthday and he invited Nicole to go out for drinks with him and his friends. But there first official date happened on Nicole’s birthday the week after when John took her to Evvia in Palo Alto and even sent flowers to her office. They began hanging out on a regular basis, hiking, going to dinners and officially became a couple at a Dave Matthew’s concert a month after they met.
Now living in Wisconsin, their beautiful engagement session with their pup Marley photographed by Alex + Natalie Nelson Photography was spent winding around the streets of Milwaukee near their home, then they headed down to the Third Ward and finally ended at the Iron Horse Hotel for a few fine drinks and a delicious flat bread pizza.
Their wedding will be held at North Shore Country Club with the focus to re-create a rustic, elegant and romantic feel to the day. The rustic theme will be carried out with tons of attention to details: lots of candles, mason jars, wild flowers, burlap type fabrics and lace. Their colors are purples, pinks and ivory with the bridesmaids wearing a vibrant pink/purple vintage style dress. Guys will wear black tux with suspenders in place of traditional vests.
