Mark + Nicole’s Tom’s Country Place Wedding :: Cleveland Wedding Photographer Kelly Lemon

Weddings lights up Mark’s world.  When I asked Mark about some of the things he enjoys doing with Nicole –  he replied “ANYTHING.” From target runs, to going on drives or playing Mario Cart –   it doesn’t matter what they are doing – he is happy as long as Nicole is by his side.  Nicole and Mark’s joy-filled love is so radiant, it was an honor to capture.

Nicole and Mark met in college through mutual friends, but shortly after graduation their lives took separate paths.  Nicole moved out to Singapore to teach at an international school and they lost touch.  It was not until Nicole moved back to the states years later that their paths crossed once again.  Nicole had caught Mark’s eye in college years ago always leaving him with the desire to know her better, so when they reconnected he didn’t waste any time before asking her out.  And sure enough, Mark knew by their second date at Clear Fork Gorge, that he wanted to continue dating Nicole for the rest of his life.

On the day of the wedding, the rain clouds looked ominous, but nothing could wipe the smiles off Nicole and Mark’s faces. We tucked away in a beautiful greenhouse while dodging the random rain showers and the setting could not have been more perfect. The rain then lightened up just in time for their outdoor ceremony – and it wasn’t until their first kiss as husband and wife that the showers came once again making for one dramatic kiss!  The day was full of laughter and was a true celebration! Nicole, I have cherished our friendship over the years and loved exploring Singapore with you! It has been such a joy to see you with the man of your dreams, and thrills me that I could be a part of one of the best days of your life!  Here are a few highlights from their beautiful wedding!
