WV Weddings Spring Summer 2020



nichole and cole met on a dating app in the spring of 2017 . Nichole, a native of Meridian, Idaho, and Cole, originally fromCoonrapids, Minnesota, were engaged a year later on a camping trip to Mountain Lake Campground in Summersville. Cole proposed, and the couple knew then that they wanted to return to that very spot to exchange their wedding vows. The bride was escorted by her mother and father to the altar. The processional musical selections perfectly reflected the couple’s personalities—like the Jurassic Park theme song that accompanied the wedding party’s walk down the aisle. The couple chose three Bible verses and had the bride’s father and the groom’s father and stepfather read them during the ceremony. For her wedding, the bride wore a fitted lace dress and carried a bouquet of sunflowers and calla lilies. The groom wore a black suit with a royal blue bowtie and vest. Bridesmaids wore royal blue, one-shoulder evening gowns, and the bride’s flower girls wore cream-colored lace dresses with royal blue ribbon at their waists and sunflower hairbands. Following the ceremony, the couple joined family and friends for a reception, where the central focus was spending time with family and enjoying a variety of outdoor games. Guests dined on food provided Cast Iron Smokers in Oak Hill and a two-tiered chocolate wedding cake with cream-colored icing and sunflower decorations. Nichole and Cole chose Ireland as their honeymoon destination following their big day. After their trip, they returned home to Stafford, Virginia, where she works in background investigation and he works as a federal agent for the military.
