Nicole and Nate Married in Crown Point Indiana
Niki and Nate met when she joined her friend’s family at Cub Scout Camp, it was not love at first site. They ran into each other over the years. They started dating in high school and have been together six years. They were engaged for year and a half. Nate is a car salesman and Niki a pre-school teacher. Niki is going to school for elementary education.
Their ceremony was held at the First United Methodist Church of Crown Point. The girls got ready in the conference room and sitting room. There was a beautiful stain glass window to place Niki’s dress in front of for pictures. The couch gave her a great place to relax before the ceremony. The doorway was the perfect place to let our couple have a moment before the ceremony, but not be able to see each other. While the girls finished getting ready, Nate and the groomsmen walked to downtown Crown Point to a local brewery.
Outside the church is a shady garden where the bridesmaids and then Niki’s dad had their first looks of Niki in her gorgeous gown. The garden was the perfect place for photos before and after the ceremony. As Niki’s father walked her down the aisle, Nate teared up and looked so very happy. During the ceremony Nate and Niki read the vows they had written. Nate’s started out with a pirate joke! Nate had another surprise up his sleeve! Our groom played a song, “Jesus and You” for a very surprised bride. She looked at him and back at her bridesmaids and said, “That’s my husband!” The ceremony was full of laughter and tears and lots of love.
The reception was held at The Chateau in Merrillville. Niki is a lifelong Disney fan, and has instilled the love of Disney in Nate. They even had bride and groom mouse ears! Their reception theme was “Tangled.” Their purple and yellow wedding cake included the crest of Corona. Their appetizers included a doughnut wall, “Holy Matrimony”. The reception included a Taylor Swift sing-a-long and plenty of dancing. The DJ had to give instructions on how to do the Electric Slide. Niki tossed her bouquet to all the single women. She then sat in a chair and Nate got ready to remove her garter, with her dad standing watch. He came out from under her dress the first time with a drink! The second time Niki’s dad dragged him out!
Thank you, Nate and Niki, for choosing White Tiger Photographic to capture your special day! Congratulations and Best Wishes.
