The bridesmaids wore full-length cognac-colored dresses accented with red ribbon. The ribbons on their dresses matched the ribbons that wrapped around their bouquets.

Laura & Brady in Ann Arbor, MI

Laura Nussel and Brady West met at a party while attending the University of Michigan. “Brady thought I had a beautiful smile,” Laura explains, “but we didn’t have much of a chance to talk that night.” Shortly after, though, Laura had a holiday get-together and made sure Brady was invited -- that time they had plenty of time to talk, and Brady got Laura’s phone number.

The Date October 14

After almost three-and-a-half years of dating, Laura arrived at Brady’s door for a visit and found a rose attached to the knocker, followed by a candlelit path of roses leading to a nervous Brady who was waiting to propose. “The request was accompanied by a beautiful ring that I had always wanted, and I replied with ‘of course!’” says Laura. A ballroom wedding in October, awash with warm autumnal colors, followed the romantic proposal fifteen months later.
