Steve and Nicole
For all intents and purposes, my part in this process could have ended after I bought the ring and no one would have thought less of me.
Guys aren’t expected to know anything about wedding planning and, in that respect if not in others, I’m a pretty typical guy. I didn’t spend my youth imagining my dream wedding. I was imagining epic battles between the Transformers and the Ninja Turtles in my backyard. So when I proposed to Nicole, I knew I was making the right decision, not only because I love her more than life itself, but because I automatically assumed she would know how to plan the wedding. Nicole is very organized, competent and likes to plan ahead – basically the opposite of me.
This February wedding photographed by Joe & Patience was all simple romance and polished charm. And, full disclosure, we especially love it because Brandy is our editor, and her excitement and joy shines through these beautiful photographs.
