ButterflyGapBride10 had a beautiful, intimate and rustic chic wedding with a mix of modern and vintage touches. Breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains were the backdrop as the couple exchanged their vows. Exquisite high centerpieces were the focal point of the reception. Don't miss this couple's amazing wedding cake...the intricate design and beautiful flowers along with the yummy flavors! The couple honeymooned in Puerto Vallarta and was able to participate in a once in a lifetime baby turtle release experience!
I can't believe it!!! For months, I have drooled over ALL of the beautiful BOTW Brides and I'm honored to become one of them :) Thanks, PW!!!
Wow... I can't believe it!!! "Wedding Cake of the Week" :)
I want to thank ALL of the fabulous PW ladies for this VERY special honor. I truly cherish each & everyone of you!
My name is Nicole but you can call me, "Nikki". I recently got married to my high school sweetheart & best friend of ten years, Andrew, in October of 2010. It was one of the best days of my life because I married the man of my dreams!!! So I LOVE sharing all of our rehearsal dinner & wedding details! And I ENJOY discussing any & everything wedding related :) However, majority of my bio is private now.

Just wanted to share this excellent news with my PW family :)
So... our FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY consisted of four days & three nights at Butterfly Gap Retreat in Maryville, Tennessee (our wedding venue). We hiked & biked at Cades Cove, took a helicopter ride around the Smokies, and enjoyed an AMAZING photo shoot with our wedding photographer, Tara from Dixie Pixel Photography www.dixiepixelphoto.com/blog/
Here are a few pics that DH & I took during our weekend...
The top tier of our wedding cake, one of our monogrammed cake plates, our serving set, and our toasting flutes : }
AND best of all... the cake actually tasted pretty good?! That's crazy, right? lol
Please excuse the "terrible" pics... BUT I had to show you one of my anniversary gifts!
I got a SECOND wedding band (on top) : }
And my favorite aunt & uncle sent these unexpectedly...
It consists of hypericum berries that were used in the bouquets at my wedding!
A nice touch...right?
Another bouquet containing hypericum berries from the Butterfly Gap Retreat Owners!!!
