Our stunning #ljmrealbride Mandy, and her now-husband Nick tied the knot in November of 2022 in Naples, Florida. They were engaged a year prior in October – on our beautiful bride’s birthday, to be exact – in Schiller Park, right here in Columbus!
We had to hear all of the details about how these two lovebirds met! Mandy shared that their love story began in a University of Dayton coffee shop, where she exchanged her phone number with Nick for a free cup of coffee [a win, win!]. Nick followed up by inviting her to a few parties, on which she bailed, until eventually giving him a chance. The rest is history!
We love a college-campus romance, and of course love that this one started over coffee! After hearing about how these two met, we had to know why Mandy chose La Jeune Mariee to help her find her dream wedding gown! She let us know that we were recommended to her by multiple previous #ljmrealbrides – which we just love! Mandy said YES to Wtoo Bessette – a dreamy strapless gown perfect for her Florida destination wedding!
On to the big day! Mandy and Nick were married at the Kensington Golf + Country Club in Naples, Florida, and hosted their family + friends for a brunch wedding! We love this non-traditional + fun idea for their wedding day. Mandy also included that their favorite part of the day was driving off in a vintage convertible following the reception – you know we love a getaway car moment!
We’re so grateful to have been a part of Mandy’s Country Club wedding day! View more photos of her big day + full vendor list below!
