Bride’s name: Grace Nelson
Date of Wedding: August 1, 2015
How they met: Nick and I met through Alpha Phi Omega, our service fraternity at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.
How he proposed: Our first date at U of I was ice skating in the fall of 2011. On December 20, 2014, Nick decided to take me ice skating in St. Louis to relive that first date. A nice dinner followed and we ended the night at the St. Louis Botanical Garden’s Garden Glow. We walked through about half of the garden and when we asked someone to take our photo in front of one of the trees, Nick got down on one knee!
Wedding colors: Tiffany Blue, Pink and Purple
How many bridesmaids: 6
Wedding Venues: The ceremony will take place at Holy Cross Catholic Church and the reception will be at the I Hotel and Conference Center.
Why you chose to shop at Michelle’s Bridal: All of the girls are incredibly welcoming and you feel like you’re best friends with them as soon as you walk into the store. In particular, Sarah, Cassidy, and Lexi have been wonderful! These girls have been a blast to work with. They spent as much time with me as I needed and offered some really good advice when helping me to perfect everyone’s wedding day look. My experience at Michelle’s has been amazing and I’m so grateful!
Part of your wedding you are most looking forward to: I am most looking forward to seeing Nick standing at the altar when the doors to the Church are opened and getting to marry my best friend!
Where you are going on your honeymoon: Castries, St. Lucia
