Real Wedding by Hope’s: Kelsey and Nick

Real Wedding by Hope’s: Kelsey and Nick

Hope’s bride Kelsey chose an ivory and black wedding dress that absolutely wowed. We’re so excited to share her beautifully unique wedding style that created a glamourous, dramatic event!

Kelsey and Nick met in 2003 at Linn-Mar’s freshman high school tour. They dated all through high school but went their separate ways for college. Through all that time, they remained friends. They dated off and on for about eight years before finally deciding to give their relationship another shot as adults. Soon after, Nick took Kelsey back to the ice arena where they had their first date and asked her to be his wife!

Kelsey recommends that new brides try to get as much accomplished as they can right away and stay organized. As she began planning her own wedding, she knew she wanted to find a bridal gown that was different. At Hope’s, she says, “All of the girls were so helpful, especially because I came in looking for a very unique dress.”

The first look was the best part of their wedding day in Kelsey’s mind, and their adorable puppy stole the show a little bit!

The newlyweds spent a week in Cancun, Mexico for their honeymoon. “It was hard coming back to reality,” Kelsey says.

Big congrats, Kelsey and Nick, and thank you so much for sharing your beautiful, unique wedding day with us! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
