For these two love birds who grew up 5 miles away from one another, you would think would force them to cross path's, but it wasn't until Jeremie became a surgeon and Amy his scrub nurse that they found one another! Fast forward a few years later and they are saying their I Do's at Winterthur, a historic estate surrounded by all of the natural enchanting elegance the grounds had to offer. Hudson Nichols Photography was called upon to capture the details from their stunning floral escort wall to romantic centerpieces with pops of color by A Styled Fete. Take a look below and see how a love story can start anywhere...even in the operating room! From the Couple...Even though we are the same age, grew up 5 miles away from each other, and had mutual friends, Jeremie and I did not meet until we started working together in 2016. Jeremie, an orthopedic surgeon, had just moved back to the area after 10 years away for training. I have worked as an operating room nurse and became Jeremie's scrub nurse. We always got along while working together and in early 2017, Jeremie asked me to go to Mikimotos for lunch after our workday. Pretty much the rest is history. We became instant best friends. Jeremie had a plan to propose down the beach in early October, but he changed his mind last minute and proposed the week before. We were at home, having sushi for dinner and Jeremie said he wanted to eat sushi because it is what we had for our first date. It was perfect, as our little pup Cade was able to be there as well. We currently live in Middletown with our boxador Cade, who is the most perfect, precious boy.Describe your wedding vision: We wanted simple romantic elegance. Soft and warm, but a little pop of color here and there. For the florals, we wanted them a little more understated but beautiful. We had a very large wedding, so liked the idea of having greenery and candles throughout our table settings to make it seem more intimate. The venue grounds are beautiful and I did not want to take away from the natural beauty of Winterthur.Special Moments, Traditions or Unique Touches: Amy was very close with her paternal grandfather. All he ever wanted was for Amy to get married. After he passed away in 2015, Amy kept a handkerchief of his which just happened to have a navy blue stripe on it. The seamstress cut a piece of the cloth in the shape of a heart and sewed it into the bust of the dress, so our hearts were touching. The moment I shared with my grandmother when I showed her the handkerchief was very special. The only thing I didn't have the day of the wedding was a "something borrowed" but I didn't know but my mom found her original engagement ring, so I wore that on my pinky finger. The other big special moment was during our Father/Daughter dance. Growing up, Jim (my dad) was known for being the best SHOUT dancer at weddings. And I always wanted to do that dance with him at my own wedding. Midway through our song, it was interrupted (on purpose) by SHOUT and all the guests got up around the dance floor.
