Epicurean Hotel Wedding: Nicole + Kyle

The melody of her favorite Disney fairytale played as she approached the beginning of the aisle. But this time it was the soundtrack to her very own story and not the one she had seen on the screens so many times before. The two of them locked eyes and as his filled with tears, she began her walk towards him. They shared private vows that were somehow identical, laughed just as much as they cried, and sealed the whole thing with a perfect kiss. And as they were announced as husband and wife that evening, it was obvious to everyone in the room that the two of them would live happily ever after…

Nicole & Kyle are Married! They had a gorgeous wedding day at the Epicurean Hotel surrounded by their closest family and friends. Nicole wore a stunning off the shoulder gown, that we are pretty sure set the SBP record for most princessiest dress ever! It had the most epicly huge train we had ever seen, and combined with all her sparkly accessories, truly made her look like a real life princess. Before the ceremony began, the two of them shared a quiet moment where they exchanged love letters and sweet words without seeing each other. This only added to the anticipation of their first official meeting of the day and when that moment came a short while later, it was hard not to tear up right along with Kyle when he finally got to see his bride.

Their reception included so many memorable moments including a slideshow of the newlyweds as kids and a Tampa Bay Lightning color palette. Kyle used a hockey stick to “toss” a souvenir to a few eligible bachelors which we thought was such a fun touch, and the first dance was played by a string quartet (which you know we always LOVE – really, what is more romantic?!) Even their two cats made a special appearance as cake toppers and signuture drinks, making the whole day truly about these two and the things they love most.

Nicole & Kyle, thank you so much for inviting us into this amazing day. We loved spending it by your sides and hope you enjoy these highlights every bit as much.

Love and Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
