Langtree Plantation Wedding | Nicole & Dusty
Saturday could not have been more perfect. We had torrential downpours the day before, and rain the day after – but God came out and shined down on Nicole and Dusty in His full glory April 6th. In a nutshell, this wedding was quite literally the most breathtaking I’ve ever been apart of – including my own. Erin Padgett Events did a phenomenal job of executing Nicole’s dream, and with the help of Barbara with This Day Forward, everyone was blown away.
Nicole and Dusty met the summer before Dusty was starting veterinary school…as he refers to “the Summer he met the love of his life.” When he recants this story to me you can see the smile on his face. “After seeing Nicole, I called my friend to ask who the beautiful brunette was that he’d introduced me to in passing. He nonchalantly said that her name was Nicole. Little did I Know that name would end up meaning so much more Ethan just a label for a pretty face.” The next time he saw Nicole, he wasn’t going to let the moment pass. He asked her to take a shot of tequila and the rest is history. Nicole moved to Breckinridge, CO to be a ski instructor but after six months – they realized long distance was not for them. Nicole made the move back to Knoxville, and the rest is history. 4 years later, they were engaged and planning their dream wedding.
The morning of Nicole and Dusty’s Langtree Plantation wedding started off with massages and a lake house. You see, Nicole’s family lives on Lake Norman, and while Nicole has lived all over – calls LKN home. Nicole’s parents hosted Dusty and company at their exquisite lake front home, while Nicole and her girls were pampered by the fabulous girls of Be Pretty. As we all know, wedding day tends to fly by and before we knew it it was time for the ceremony.

Guests were greeted in the MOST adorable way as they entered the ceremony space – a prosecco horse trailer hand made by Nicole’s dad. Upon take their seats, guests were entranced by the scent of flowers throughout the air…and as the clock struck 4:30, Nicole slowly walked the aisle, on the arm of her father, to the man she would spend forever with. Dusty was overcome with joy as he saw how beautiful Nicole looked as not only his bride, but his forever love.

Following the ceremony, guests entered Langtree Plantation’s Pavillion, where Erin and her team transformed the space. What is a beautiful venue to begin with, was now an enchanted garden full of romantic draping, jaw dropping flower arrangements and candles to set the tone. It was flawless. Nicole’s father made the most heartfelt toast that had everyone in tears, and We Got The Beat did the perfect Ed Sheeren rendition for Nicole and Dusty to dance to. The night was full of laughter and love and every person there came to celebrate the love these two share. It could not have been a more perfect night, for a more perfect couple.
Nicole and Dusty – you are incredible human beings. Together you will conquer the world and I am SO excited to watch the journey unfold!!
XOXO – Katy
