A Sleek and Vibrant Wedding At The Ritz Carlton

It was mutual friends that brought Nicole and Michael together, although it would be over a year after first meeting that the two would make it official.

After two trips to Vegas, one to Mexico, and a lot of coaxing by each of their best friends, Nicole and Michael slowly began to realise they were perfect for each other. While on a cruise in Mexico, Nicole’s best friend asked her if she was sure she didn’t like Michael.

“After​ ​that​ ​I realised​ ​that​ ​I​ ​had​ ​started​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​feelings​ ​for​ ​him,” she said.

The proposal was elaborately set up, with Michael enlisting the help of family and friends. While Nicole considers herself hard to surprise, she was caught off guard by the moment. Under the guise of a gas leak in Michael’s apartment building, Nicole was led up to the rooftop where she heard “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys.

“I ​saw​ ​Mike​ ​standing on​ ​the​ ​helipad​ ​in​ ​a​ ​circle​ ​of​ ​candles​ ​and​ ​roses​ ​and​ ​I​ ​was ​blown​ ​away.​ ​I​ ​started​ ​crying​ ​as​ ​I walked​ ​up​ ​to​ ​him​ ​and​, ​with​ ​all​ ​of​ ​our​ ​family​ ​and​ ​closest​ ​friends​ ​watching​ ​nearby​, ​he​ ​got​ ​down​ ​on​ ​one​ ​knee​ ​and popped​ ​the​ ​question!​”

With only two weeks left before the wedding, Nicole decided to change the colour theme after seeing a video online of a black and white wedding. Together with her helpful vendors, they created a wedding of timeless elegance.

The wedding was vibrant and full of energy, and included a confetti canon to top off the ceremony. With so much excitement in the air, the couple almost missed their first dance as their guests took to the floor and didn’t want to stop dancing.

“Every​ ​moment​ ​of​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​day​ ​and​ ​night​ ​was​ ​a​ ​fairy​ ​tale​ ​dream​ ​come​ ​true!​ ​It​ ​was​ ​more​ ​beautiful​ ​and magical​ ​than​ ​I​ ​could​ ​have​ ​ever​ ​imagined.”
