Classic Blue is just so elegant and timeless as a wedding color. Amy and Nick decided to coordinate their wedding around the French/slate blue color scheme, and wanted the wedding to have an Al Fresco, romantic, Florida-Southern feel! The pair got married at Capen House in sunny Florida and share a snippet of their romance below.
Tell us about the proposal: THE best! Nick and I had planned a winter trip to Key West (I’m a Floridian at heart and hate the winters) for the two of us in early March and I was so excited for the trip. When we landed, he somehow convinced me not to immediately change into my bathing suit and head for the beach. Little did I know, my family and his were gathering at a nearby state park – hiding in the dunes – waiting to celebrate as soon as he asked. We walked down the beach and I was completely surprised. I loved having my whole family there and getting to celebrate with them.
Tell us about yourselves. What are your hobbies? What is one fun fact about each person? I’m a recruiter for a communications agency and have an Etsy watercolor silhouette shop on the side (amyuhl&co). I love spring, Florida, the beach and my family. Nick is an attorney and a recent Georgetown Law grad. He loves Michigan football and lazy Sundays. We met at Rollins College and started dating our freshman year of college – our rehearsal dinner was our 9th dating anniversary!
If you could pick one word that describes you as a couple, what would it be? What a tough one! I’ll go with silly! Nick makes me laugh like I’m a kid!
