It didn't take long for Nicole Rebochark and Thomas DiMarco to realize marriage was in the cards for them. The couple hit it off while bartending in college, and on their two-year anniversary of dating, Thomas popped the question. Shortly after, the South Florida couple celebrated their union with an intimate outdoor ceremony in Davie, Florida.
Nicole searched high and low to find the perfect venue, a place with a rustic elegance feel, which can be hard to find in a state synonymous with the word beach.
"After almost losing hope, a friend mentioned Robbins Park to me," Nicole says. "I went to look at the venue that same day. Pulling into the park is like traveling into another state. The entire place was covered in old Oak trees, and it had the rustic elegance that we were looking for. It was just breathtaking."
The couple was married under one of Robbins Park's expansive oak trees, with a dinner reception following. Photographer Elaine Palladino spent the day capturing the couple's special moments. For more photos and information, visit our gallery.
