One look at these two and we were smitten with them. Both Ian and Nicole are visually striking, each in their own way. Ian, who was wearing a velvet animal print jacket caught our eye right away. And Nicole with her flowing, gorgeous, ginger hair and a laugh that makes even the air around her smile, was the star of it all. From the moment they arrived, the whole group of family and friends were engulfed in smiles, love, and laughter.
Fall here in the desert can be bee season as the oppressive heat transitions into more hospitable temperatures. So when we have water and flowers and sugary treats, occasionally the bees think they are invited to the party. There was an uncharacteristically large swarm of honey bees that was really attracted to this wedding party. Mostly the bees were uninterested in the humans and were much more enticed by the flowers, so much so that we had to move the flowers away from the group. Though Ian and Nicole weren’t overly bothered by the bee’s addition to their party, they have decided to get matching tattoos of a bee over their ring fingers to memorialize the occasion!
Congratulations you two! We send our best wishes and love for a long and happy marriage!
With Love, from Cactus and Lace Weddings!
