Nicole and Curtis’ Wedding at McMenamin’s Kennedy School.
Nicole and Curtis’ wedding was, for lack of a better word, awesome. A large wedding, all the tables in McMenamins’ gymnasium were filled, and it was easy to see how happy and excited *everyone* was to see the the two married. Maya, their daughter a.k.a. adorable flower girl, sorta stole the show with her, for lack of a better word, adorableness. Everyone was in good spirits, and never have I seen foam swords and dart guns (for the adults!) shooting across the dance floor. Awesome wedding.
Since Curtis and Nicole weren’t very traditional, and to make the wedding day flow better, Nicole and Curtis opted to do a first look.
I think we were all surprised by how emotional the first look was for them.
So, because they opted to do the first look, we were able to spend a good amount of time taking portraits and group photos before the ceremony, without any rush. Everyone gave Curtis a hard time for never smiling with his teeth, but I think he has a really cool (teethless) smile.
Behind me, the bridal party is heckling Curtis to “smile with your teeth!”
Maya, their adorable daughter did not want to pose for pictures… until she realized how FUN mommy’s dress was to play with.
Did I mention she sorta stole the show?
Surely you’ve picked up on this by now, but this wedding was all smiles.
Hanging out in the hallways of McMenamin’s Kennedy School.
The Kennedy School’s gymnasium is a pretty cool venue for a wedding reception.
Everyone has something that makes them unique, and one of the many things at this wedding, was the engraving on Curtis’ ring! Initially, the tennis fan in me got really excited with the notion that they were tennis fans. But their story is WAY better. Inside his ring, it said”tennis”, which was Nicole’s early way of saying “I love you” to Curtis. For those who don’t know tennis scoring, “love” is how you say zero. So, there’s “love” in tennis.
Oh, and the cake toppers! Bobble head bride and groom that looks eerily like them. Curtis’ bobble head is even smiling without showing his teeth!
While Curtis and his Mom had their Mother & Son dance, Maya walked onto the dance floor asking to join. Like I said, she’s adorable.
One guess as to what dance these boys are doing.
If you guessed “Jump On It as done on Fresh Prince of Bel Air” you’d be correct!
Fun fact, the groomsman who caught the garter is actually getting married next May!
And as I mentioned, dart guns for the grown ups!
And for Maya too 🙂
