A charming bowling wedding: Nichole + Tim

categories Pretty Paper, Real Weddings

Gorgeous gorgeous wedding nestled in the Old Buttonwoods neighborhood of Warwick, Rhode Island. Old Buttonwoods? How adorable is that!

The whole wedding is just so pretty and thoughtful and detailed… and the invites and paper are divine. Which is even more awesome because the bride, Nichole, made them! She’s a talented lady.

And we’re pretty sure that every community reception hall should come with vintage mini bowling lanes. So charming!


And we have a pretty video shot by Jim Altieri of Vintage Cinema. Neat!

So satisfying to see the whole wedding in action along with the photos!

You can see more photos of Nichole’s invites on Beast Pieces too.

Beautiful, Nichole and Tim! Congratulations!! And thank you so so much for sharing your photos with us!

  18. oh my goodness… “snug as a bug in a rug” – what a genius wedding favor! bowling party is one of the most creative and fun wedding themes i’ve ever seen. absolutely love it.

  19. I love that bowling stationary. I love the whole thing but I’m definitely going to have to find a way to use that.

  20. absolutely LOVE the stationery design!

  21. I was lucky to be a part of this team – the talent was brilliant across the board and SO much of it was Nichole’s doing. I was blown away when I saw the details she’d so lovingly created. I loved the freedom she gave me as her florist and had a great time at the wedding. Her ceremony was one of the most genuine and moving I’ve ever seen!

  42. Seriously IN LOVE! I agree, the bride did an amazing job & got every detail right. Don’t even get me started on the invites!!!

    Nichole, would you care to share where you got that rustic ribbon you used to tie your invitation suite together?? I have my stationary ready, but that type of ribbon is just what I’ve been looking for to package it all together!!!!

    Thanks in advance!

  43. thank you all again for your sweet remarks!

    vanessa – it’s cheesecloth :) you’ll need to purchase cheesecloth with a tighter weave and then cut it into strips. it takes some trial and error because the cloth can fall apart easily. good luck!

  44. Thanks Nichole – no wonder I have not found anything quite like this “ribbon” at the store haha — how creative! Thanks so much for the tip!

  45. WOW. That has to be one of the most beautifully themed weddings I’ve ever seen! She must be a production designer or something. So impressive!

  46. ,,,this wedding is very inspiring,,,

  47. WOW! Who did that dessert table? Or was that all the bride as well? It combines everything cute and adorable that I’ve seen and coveted and it’s all pulled together. Way to go!

  48. gorgeous, stunning wedding by an amazing team. and nichole, you are so talented. obviously :) love, love, love!

  57. I’m getting married this year and I would just like to thank you Nichole and Tim for letting me be apart of your special day. You have both been an inspiration to me. I was wanting to know what the songs in the wedding video are called if you could help me out. I would love to use them in my video. I too am having a wood sort of rustic feel wedding so thank you again for sharing it with me!!

  58. thank you chantelle! here’s the scoop on the music:

    first song: Taken by Trees – Sweet Child O Mine

  62. The details are wonderful but the love between the couple as shown in the video is just breath taking! Wow, all anyone can want in life is that kind of love!

  63. These invitations are a great example of adding the suggestion of a theme (on the envelope liners) without throwing it in the guests faces. Very creative!
