Tattooed bride Janelle contacted me via the Marry Me Ink Instagram with the above picture of her and new husband Nick. Aren’t they glorious? They were married at the stunning Green Gables Wedding Estate with wonderful images from Kristel Collins Photography.
We met at a high school football game, I believe it was homecoming game. We remained friends for about two years until Nick got some liquid courage and asked me out at Hooters! (Romantic right!) I drove him home that night and he called me the next morning to make sure he remembered correctly. That was 7 years ago and we have been inseparable ever since.
We wanted to make sure our taste and style was represented in our music choices. During the ceremony Nick walked out to ‘Feeling Alright by Rebelution’ and our first dance was ‘Is This Love’ by Bob Marley. I also asked our DJ if he could do a reggae style cocktail hour, which he pulled off perfectly. Our cocktail hour consisted of music by the Dirty Heads, Bob Marley, Iration, SOJA etc. It was the first time I had ever heard the Dirty Heads played at a wedding, but it was definitely us! We also wanted to include our sweet Lola in our wedding. It was definitely a pain to have her be a part of our ceremony but we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!
