Wedding – Our big day near Florence, Italy

I’m back with a new name, Nicole Michele Cleary. I feel an odd sensation when I look at my new name. Letting go of the past and starting a new family is a lot to take in, but I know this change is for the better. Opening up a new chapter of my life with new possibilities.

The wedding day itself felt like a dream, because it went so perfectly. The colorful sunset and gorgeous 70 degree weather in Fiesole, near Florence Italy, made the ceremony magical. Certainly a day I will never forget, not for the beautiful scenery, exquisite decorations, delicious cuisine, and swinging jazz band, but for the romantic, patient, supportive and strong man I married. He is who I was walking down the aisle to, my husband, my person. We could have gotten married in a McDonald’s, but this way had a bit of artistic flair :)

Below are some pictures of our special day by our beloved friends and family:

      Thank you! It felt very surreal in the moment, because it went so perfectly… I just didn’t believe it was real.

      • Su says:

        It looks perfect! Seriously… And you looked beautiful! I loved your dress, It looks like lace was it lace? Just in general, the air and sky and coloring of the twilight was amazing in those photos. You are a lucky woman! :D

        • nmbpro says:

          Aww that’s really sweet of you to say Su! Yes, the dress was lace with a leafy vine pattern. It was a much simpler style than many of the other dresses I tried on, but that’s why I loved it. It had a classic elegance. The sunset wedding ceremony was definitely planned, but I could not have planned for the absolutely perfect weather we got for that day.

  5. Beautiful pictures, beautiful dress, beautiful everything, CONGRATS!
