It's not every wedding that the inspiration comes through so glaringly. Nicole and Luke were looking for an Italian inspired wedding and their wedding was Italian. Starting with the venue, a winery, all the way down to their custom designed stationery. It all screamed Italiano, and I love the way that Kristina captured the rustic romance.

You're the only one for me

 

6 THINGS WE CAN LEARN

  1. Indecision is more than just analysis paralysis, it can mean death to your wedding planning progress.
  2. Stuff will happen last minute, so plan well.
  3. Catering will serve you and your new spouse first, so eat first.
  4. Details can really knock socks off.
  5. Determining how decor will get home from the venue is just as important as determining how it gets to the venue.
  6. Sometimes you pick shoes over wheelchairs, but grandma understands.

Want a wedding like Luke and Nicole's? It all starts with how you plan and prepare for your wedding. And Nicole and Luke will both agree that determining what you want for your wedding can yield some major wins.
