Nicole and Eric - A Rustic Barn Wedding in Parrish

Eric and Nicole had no idea fate was pulling them together, living at the same apartment complex in Tallahassee and attending countless FSU games, but never meeting until mutual friends introduced them at Beef 'O Brady's (watching an FSU game of course!) In true Seminoles fashion, Eric proposed at the Unconquered statue at Florida State University. The garnet and gold color scheme was an obvious choice for the couple, but pops of eggplant were also incorporated throughout to bring an element of Springtime to their March nuptials.

 All of the twinkling lights at Baker's Ranch created an intimate and romantic feel.

 The couple were so full of laughter and love, especially for each other, that it only made sense for them to write their own vows.

 Of course the groom had to sport his FSU socks and cufflinks!

 Oak trees dripping in Spanish moss surrounded the ceremony space and crystal chandeliers hung above the couple as they said "I do".

 The gift table was full of pictures of the couple and amazing personalized gifts, like the three paneled canvas prints of the couple's last name against an image of the FSU stadium.
