Talk about a fun couple!!
If you’re looking for a couple that you can laugh with, cry with, share a heart to heart moment, and then dance your heart out with (here’s looking at you, Nicole), Jake and Nicole are it. The joy they both exude during both the mundane and the exciting times truly make every day that much better, and the planning process SO. MUCH. FUN. This enthusiasm for life and each other was so evident all throughout their wedding day, too!
Jake and Nicole picked the Ironstone Ranch as their venue and were planning on sealing the deal in the orchard by the bell tower.
Unfortunately, the weather thwarted their plans.
With a near 100% chance of rain, we decided to implement the rain plan – getting married in the mini barn. Behind the scenes, we coordinated ways to keep the wedding party (most importantly, the bride and groom!) dry as we moved between the getting ready space in the farm house, the ceremony location, outdoor pictures, and finally to the reception.

Now, we know the rain plan is normally not the couple’s ideal situation, but let us tell you, this turned out perfectly! Jake and Nicole took the change in plans like champs and embraced the necessary changes. And hey – rain on your wedding day is good luck, right?! The rain may have altered the original plans, but in no way put a damper on the celebration! Family and friends packed the dance floor and had the time. of. their. lives. Plus, take a look at the pictures – they turned out so beautifully!
We’d be mistaken if we didn’t mention some of our favorite pieces of their day.
First of all, Jake and Nicole chose to honor her Ecuadorian culture in the wedding processional, and we loved it! Jake walked his mother down the aisle (yes, we needed tissues!) and the father of the groom escorted the mother of the bride in. It was so sweet and such a personal touch to the day 🙂
We also loved the couple’s choice to have a final last dance together alone before leaving the reception! The moment was so sweet, and allowed them to have one more time to really connect and enjoy the whole event celebrating their love!
As you can probably tell, we were honored to be part of their day. Jake and Nicole, we are wishing you all the happiness in the world and a marriage full of joy!!
