Nicole and Jae were married at Nicole’s family home in Raleigh, North Carolina in August of 2018. Their wedding was carnival themed, with homemade games built by Nicole, Jae, and Nicole’s father for guests to enjoy during the reception. Skeeball, ring toss, and several lawn games were lovingly crafted with attention to every bit of detail for this special day. With a little help from their friends, Nicole and Jae hand-painted all of the games to match their theme, as well as their lively personalities!

Their ceremony was officiated by Nicole’s brother and was equal parts humorous and emotional. Music is very important to Nicole and Jae, and they infused their love of pop punk, emo, and indie rock into the wedding day through their ceremony and reception playlists.

City BBQ brought out the delicious fare they are known for. One of my favorite crews to work with and their food is always a hit! The cake and other desserts were provided by Publix and then decorated by the family.

This whimsical backyard wedding was a real labor of love for Nicole and Jae and their friends and family. They poured their hearts into creating a joyful, and super personalized event to celebrate their love!
