Nicole and Joshua met online and became engaged after only a few short months of dating. Twenty days into their engagement, Nicole was involved in a near fatal burn accident that left her with 3rd and 4th degree burns on her neck, shoulders and hands. The couple debating postponing their wedding for a few years, but ultimately decided to keep their original wedding date and get married as planned.
Their wedding was an amazing celebration not only of their marriage, but of love, hope and positivity. We bet you can’t help smile at all of the color, vibrancy and joy at this happy day.
Nicole + Joshua | September 28, 2017 | Golden, Colorado
We had a Jewish ceremony with Rabbi Ted Stainman and our white tulle and lace chuppah was decorated with colorful paper flowers and hanging paper hearts. We wrote and recited our own vows. Walking down the aisle was the first time Josh had seen the dress and started his vows with, “ Wow, you in that dress… just WOW! “
The venue had a unique stone interior with high wood beams across a vaulted ceiling. It is nestled in the beautiful wilderness of tall pines and wildlife of the Colorado front range. We wanted to have a fun and vibrant atmosphere, this included colorful linens, vintage china, rose gold sequin table liners and and even a bounce house! We had individual wood fire pizzas catered, sandwich sliders and caprese salad hors d’oeuvres and a desert bar featuring a macaroon tower, cookie bars and cupcakes.
Nicole’s Wedding Dress Search
I probably tried on eight dresses total. I actually saved the one I choose for last because I knew it was the one and I wouldn’t be going to try on anymore after it.
I chose the one that I picked because it was so unique from any dresses I have ever seen before. It was also very comfortable and I could move and dance in it. I was able to look in the mirror and feel beautiful. It literally gave me goosebumps and I just knew it was the right one for me!

Wearing this dress was more than just being beautiful on my special day it was a symbol of a journey supported by loved ones and celebrated with love. I think this dress needs to continue to bring special memories to those who wear it, and I encourage someone to make it their own! I will also make a donation to the Phoenix society that supports burn survivors based on the sale of the dress.
