Nicole and Jeremiah Thomas tied the knot among blooming lavender in Redmond, Washington. Having first met while in middle school, the two reconnected when they were in their 30s, and the rest is history. The Colorado-based couple opted for a destination wedding, which featured pastel splashes of pink, blue and lavender with turquoise accents. Their event included some thoughtful touches for hosting a wedding during a pandemic: custom black disposable masks with gold lettering, together with color-coded bracelets for the guests to show their level of comfort with physical contact. The bride’s dress had a lilac undertone to match the vibrant lavender fields. To honor her grandparents, Nicole attached portrait charms of them to her bouquet. The groom wore a blue suit, lined with fabric bearing images of cocktails, and a green paisley tie that matched the bride’s green shoes. In lieu of a traditional flower girl, a close friend of the couple took on the role of “flower guy” and tossed blooms down the aisle. Their wedding also featured a globe in place of a traditional guest book. As the festivities came to end, the couple was whisked off in a Maserati to enjoy their honeymoon in Mexico.
