Eight years ago, JeanMarie and Kolin met while he was working at Albertsons and she was working at Little Caesars. Kolin often came into Little Caesars, but would never talk to JeanMarie… until the last day he worked there. They happen to run into each other in the parking lot and he asked for JeanMarie’s number. They instantly became best friends and talked every day, but did not begin dating until a year later.
Then, six years after they began dating, the couple went to Disney World with JeanMarie’s Dad, brother and best friend. After they had a wonderful breakfast, they headed over to Cinderella’s Castle where Kolin asked JeanMarie to marry him — she said it was completely unexpected and magical!
Thank you both for letting Bridal Spectacular share your gorgeous Las Vegas wedding with our readers!
A Glimpse at JeanMarie & Kolin’s Wedding
To help plan their dream wedding, JeanMarie and Kolin attended one of our wonderful Bridal Spectacular shows to get them started. After all of their research, they chose to get married at the gorgeous Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort on September 10, 2015 and selected Moxie Studio to capture their special day.
As featured in the spring issue of Spectacular Bride Magazine, their wedding began with a picture-perfect outdoor ceremony overlooking the golf course before they moved indoors for the reception. Adorned with shades of soft pink and gray, beautiful details and floral displays, and the most breathtaking sunset, JeanMarie and Kolin’s wedding was truly a fairytale.
The couple said their wedding day was full of emotion. They were married on their 7-year anniversary of being together, which made the day even more special. However, they said it was also very emotional because they had lost their son six years prior, who would have been the ring bearer. In addition, Kolin lost his brother just a few months before the wedding, who would have been standing by his side as a groomsmen. They added that missing those two and having to go forward with the day without them was very difficult. Though, they made sure to still include them in their special day by having certain things dedicated to them throughout the wedding.
JeanMarie added that her best friend purchased a photo booth as their wedding gift and it was an absolute hit! She said everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and Vegas Booth did a wonderful job!
Although it was a day full of mixed emotion, the couple could not have looked happier or more in love! We hope you enjoy these stunning photos of JeanMarie and Kolin’s wedding as captured by Moxie Studio.
