Michele and Nathan had one of Jason’s favorite engagement sessions ever. They made it all about their styles, their personalities, the things they like, and they included many people from their wedding party as well. Their engagement session was zombie invasion and Michele and Nathan made it into a terrific production with the makeup, props, and even fog machines! Knowing how much this couple loves horror and fall and making things their own, we could not wait for their wedding day!
The wedding was held at the USF Gibbons Alumni Center with the ceremony in The Courtyard and the reception in the USF Parents Association Club Room/Atrium. Michele had the wonderful Darla Stafford as her hair and makeup artist. At the reception the caterer was Amici’s and the wedding cake was from Publix. The wedding details were awesome and really reflected Michele and Nathan’s style and personalities! The flowers were beautiful shades of orange and yellow with some wheat stalks. There were glitzy pumpkins as decorations and on one of the cake tiers. The garter had a silly scull face and the boutonniere had little zombie men on them. The ceremony included the pagan custom of handfasting where the couple’s hands were fastened together with a cord to form an infinity symbol. At the reception the wedding party entered carrying light sabers and formed a line for the ring bearer (Michele and Nathan’s son) to enter wearing a Darth Vader mask. There were so many ways that Michele and Nathan included to create a wedding day unique to the two of them and filled with laughter and love.
Michele and Nathan, thank you for letting us be part of this experience with you! It has been great getting to know you during your wedding planning. We are so happy for your family and wish you so much happiness in your future together!
