Nicole and Jordan’s coastal fairytale Sarasota wedding featured an angelic color palette of blush, ivory and just a touch of gold for their daytime affair.

“I was going for an elegant, fairytale theme,” the bride explained. “I am so incredibly lucky to have found Jordan, and I have always felt like our love story was like a fairytale. We have gone through a lot together and always came out stronger together.”

The Sarasota couple knew that their beautiful hometown would be the perfect location to host their waterfront wedding.

“I was born and raised here, and Jordan has lived here since he was one, so it was always where I imagined myself getting married,” Nicole shared.

To continue her ethereal theme, the bride found the most amazing Reem Acra strapless, sweetheart embroidered bodice ballgown at Sarasota wedding dress boutique Blush Bridal Sarasota.

“I didn’t really know what I wanted in a dress boutique, but I definitely found it at Blush Bridal Sarasota!” the bride gushed. “Everything about Blush was perfect! Fondren always made sure myself and my guests were comfortable and happy. Her boutique is just so beautiful, and all the gowns were so pretty! I got personalized service and alterations were on-site. I tell all of my friends to go to Blush because I know they will love the experience there!”

Wanting to take of everything the day of the wedding, the bride hired Sarasota wedding planner NK Productions to keep her special day on track.

“Once I met with Rachael of NK Productions, I knew she would be able to make my wedding day perfect! Nicole and Rachael helped me find the most perfect vendors, and the day of the wedding was so relaxing because Rachael and Kerri took care of everything!” the bride beamed. “I could not have asked for better wedding planners. Everyone kept telling me something would go wrong and that it’s okay, but nothing went wrong and its because of the NK team!”

Looking back, the bride’s most cherished memory was the much anticipated wedding ceremony and exchanging those two special words.

“My most memorable moment was saying ‘I do’ to my husband!” Nicole reminisced. “Honestly I loved the whole day; it was all so amazing. I keep playing it over and over again in my head!”

The Proposal:
Jordan planned the perfect Disney proposal. I love Disney, so it was absolutely incredible! We were walking to a surprise dinner reservation at Disney Springs, when he asked a couple if they could take our picture. He proposed by the hot air balloon in front of the big lake. There was a restaurant behind us with outside seating and a big party was cheering after I said, “Yes!” Then we went to the Boathouse for dinner, and after we took a romantic boat ride with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. Jordan and I were high school sweethearts and had been dating for 10 years, so I had been waiting for this proposal!

How would you describe your theme?
I was going for an elegant fairytale. I am so incredibly lucky to have found Jordan and I have always felt like our love story was like a fairytale. We have gone through a lot together and always came out stronger together. Our wedding hashtag was #BakerFairytale.

What were your colors?
Blush and ivory, with touches of Gold. I have always wanted a pink wedding ever since I can remember. It also fit really well because my mom used blush in her wedding, so I was able to incorporate some of her wedding things, like her silk bouquet that I walked down the aisle with.

What did you look for in a wedding planner?
Someone to help me find really good vendors and take care of everything the day of the wedding.

My maid of honor recommended I use NK Productions. I spoke with Nicole, and I loved everything she said. Once I met with Rachael I knew she would be able to make my wedding day perfect! Nicole and Rachael helped me find the most perfect vendors! The day of the wedding was so relaxing because Rachael and Kerri took care of everything! I could not have asked for better wedding planners. Everyone kept telling me something would go wrong and that it’s okay, but nothing went wrong and its because of the NK team!
