Real Wedding | Nicole + Jason

Now here is an absolute feast for your eyes, today’s Real Wedding was all mountains and big skies, set in the heart of the majestic Yosemite Valley, California.  Things to love about Nicole + Jason’s big day: divine scenery; gorgeous photography by Patrick Pike Studios; and Nicole’s breath-taking Enzoani Finley gown…trumpet silhouette with strapless, horizontal ruched silky dupion bodice and mikado gardenia skirt – yes indeed, heaven!

Ceremony + Reception
We had a simple Catholic ceremony celebrated under the blue skies and cathedral-like walls of Yosemite Valley.  For our reception we had white table cloths simply set for a candle lit dinner in the timeless Ahwahnee Solarium. We chose a red velvet cake topped with fresh burgundy Dahlias and Cymbidium orchids. There were heartfelt toasts and a lively dance floor that bridged that gap between generations – without a doubt, the best day of my life.

Nicole’s Dress Search
I had no idea what I wanted. I liked so many dresses but was worried I would never be able to pick just one. A sales clerk convinced me to try on this dress. After, every other dress I tried on just didn’t compare — that’s how I knew this was “the dress”.

How Nicole Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Beautiful. Special. Complete.

Why Nicole Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I love my dress so much and I will cherish Patrick’s photos for the rest of my life. I want someone else to get as much happiness from this dress as I did.
