Taelor and Keiton planned to say “I do” in 2018, but an unexpected call to work abroad came, and they found themselves delaying their nuptials in favor of spending a year in Tokyo. When they came back to the states, they set about planning a wedding worthy of all that waiting.
The couple said their vows in a church, surrounded by giant stained glass windows and the people they loved. After a quick break to capture some photos in the Lincoln summer sunshine, the group moved to Wilderness Ridge, where they enjoyed dinner and dancing.
What began as a set-up by their families was followed by a romantic surprise proposal, which ultimately led to Nichole and Justin’s glamorous winter wedding! Together they created a wedding style that was classic old Hollywood with the perfect mix of elegance and sophistication. This couple wanted their wedding to be unique – something they would love forever, and it was nothing shy of perfection!

FROM THE BRIDE: I know this sounds cliche, but it truly was the best day of our lives. Having all of our friends and family in one place to help us celebrate felt like such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A day full of all our favorite people and things – what more could you ask for? My favorite memory looking back on our wedding day would have to be the private time we had before the ceremony to take pictures out in the snow. It was such a perfect day, we could relive it all over again!
