Rustic Winter Wedding

Nicole + Brendan: Rustic Winter Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on November 30, 2020

Nicole and Brendan struck up a conversation at an AC/DC concert and haven’t skipped a beat since.

The Proposal

After attending a wedding on Prince Edward Island, Nicole and Brendan decided to drive down to Boston to catch a Red Sox game. Along the way they stopped in Maine and Brendan surprised her with an overnight stay at a B&B on Tripp Lake. After paddle boating and a candlelit pizza dinner, Brendan proposed on the dock as the sun set over the crystal waters.

The Big Day

They wanted their winter wedding to feel warm, comfortable and intimate for their 160 guests. The rustic log walls and gorgeous stone fireplace at The Old Timers Cabin created a perfectly cozy atmosphere—a good thing since their wedding happened to be on the coldest day in 30 years!

The bride and groom wore the same watch and pearl necklace that Brendan’s Geto and Baba wore at their own wedding in 1953. They also served traditional Ukrainian fare for dinner as a delicious nod to Brendan’s heritage.

Favourite Moments

The best moment of the day was when Nicole walked down the aisle to an upbeat String Quartet version of “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors. When Brendan saw his soon-to-be wife, all he could do was mouth the words “Wow, I love you!”

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

“Communication is key between the bride and groom, and between the bride and groom with their vendors. Always ask questions and ask for help when you need it.”
