Florida Mansion Wedding: Joey & Nick

Napoleoni Photography LLC

Nov. 15, 2015

Nick proposed to Joey at an annual fair in Valrico, Florida known as November Fest. He had planned with friends of theirs to propose on the ferris wheel, just after 8 p.m. when the lights illuminated their special night.

Nick and Joey planned and decorated everything themselves. They even attended a gay wedding expo in Tampa to look for ideas. Their wedding party was a big help with planning and making sure they were there every step of the way.

Nick’s favorite memory of the day was seeing Joey at the end of the aisle as he began to walk down. Everyone rose out of their seats. It then got emotional for Nick. Joey’s favorite memory was standing on the veranda, at the top of the staircase waiting for the music build up with his event coordinator before he began heading towards the aisle, where his mother awaited to escort him.

The grooms shared their advice for other same-sex couples: “Choose your vendors carefully and be happy with every decision you choose. This is a once in a lifetime event and you want it to be perfect. Never argue about ideas for your big day and always come to an agreement.”
