“This wedding is going to happen on September 18th, no matter what”, Nicole said to me in early August. It was just a question of logistics, and who could show up. While it would certainly be unconventional, it was happening 🙂
Corey and Nicole planned to get married at Madera Estates, a beautiful venue in Conroe with a Spanish-European style, with enough seating to host a small village. But then Covid happened, so like many of our couples they had a few decisions to make. They were also in the process of buying their first home, and that made everything much more clear. They invested their wedding fund into their future!
But they still wanted to celebrate their union with friends and family and luckily they now had the perfect venue to entertain.
They hosted an open-house style reception in the early afternoon, where friends and family could drop by, mingle, munch on yummy hors d’oeuvres, and play disc golf in the backyard. Nicole and Corey have the cutest home, it’s light, open, and Nicole’s modern boho charm.
We later gathered at their church for an evening ceremony. But what makes this story really unique is that, not only have both Nicole and Corey worked at the church in the cafe, it’s also where they met! So, since we had some time to kill (also another unique thing about their wedding day), we went back to the place where it all began. They retold the story of how the met, (Corey swears Nicole had a crush on him first) and how their journey to the aisle wasn’t in a straight line, but through a long and winding journey. The clerks at the cafe were really cool, and even let the bride and groom behind the counter for a cute photo op.
I can honestly say that Nicole has the most exuberant, carefree laugh and I don’t think there was a moment throughout the day where she wasn’t smiling, laughing, or having fun. The girl has a zero-stress vibe. I loved all of her modern boho elements, like her all-white bouquet with cotton and lots of texture, and their rust colored accents.
She and Corey are just good people and I think they’re perfect for one another.
Nicole and Corey I’m so happy for you both and I can’t wait to see where this next chapter takes you.
