Trish + Nick Step Into The Limelight | TradeWinds Island Resort | St. Pete Beach, FL

Trish & Nick met at a Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks football game on January 17, 2016 for the NFL Divisional Round game. After a Panthers win Nick and Trish met up at a bar and it has been a “football loving” relationship ever since!

Nick proposed to Trish on the evening of June 9, 2018 at their house. Trish was out with her girlfriend getting pampered at Ré Salon in Charlotte. Trish was expecting a laid back evening and kept Nick anxiously waiting at the house for 4 hours while she relaxed and had wine. Upon Trish coming home she proceeded to play with the neighbor’s kids, check the mail, and do the dishes all while Nick was hiding upstairs with ring, flowers, and wine in hand.

Trish & Nick share kindness, passion, they are supportive of each other, they encourage each other, they care of each and in the midst of it all… they find humor. They enjoy the beach and have always dreamt of having a destination beach wedding. They like to go to different breweries, wineries, they love traveling and cooking oh and visiting Triple D Restaurants (Diner, Drive-Ins, & Dives) How fun is that?

For their wedding, they wanted a simple yet modern beach wedding with a contemporary & tropical twist. A wedding where guests will feel comfortable in beach dress attire, while providing an elegant feel. Since this is a complete destination wedding they wanted all traveling guests to feel warm and welcomed and TradeWinds Island Resort did not disappoint. The outfits overall, bring out all the beach feels and they were able to include dark blue/navy for Nick's favorite college team - Penn State Nittany Lions.

From the handmade signs all throughout, to the Palma Phoenix Green filler plants and the dramatic King Protea Flowers to the mouth watering Doughnut Bar (in which the stands were handcrafted by Trish and her dad) to the ever chic and trendsetting geometric ceremony arch. Did you know that the triangle is the strongest shape found in nature? The sweetest moment during the ceremony was when Taylor joined Trish & Nick and was given a necklace from the couple, representing their infinite union. Family & thoughtfulness was all around. Trish’s vision came to life with beauty and everlasting memories.

Oh…to our bright blue eyed Trish, laid-back Nick & sweet Taylor we wish you ALL the good life can bring.

Enjoy it with all your heart.
