It wasn't supposed to happen this way.

It wasn't supposed to happen this way....I know that is the case with most couples that find out they are expecting before they say I do. For Nicole & Jeff the comment was made to me "we always go big". So what do you do when you have already planned the wedding of your dreams and you find out you are expecting a baby as well. Embrace it. Life happens. I love how Nicole & Jeff made having a baby part of their wedding day. When they had their sonogram, Jeff and Nicole didn't want to know the gender of the baby and decided that they would reveal it to everybody on their wedding day. They selected a person to make a cake and provided them the with a top secret envelop that revealed the baby's gender.

The morning of the wedding, the cake came in boxed up and was promptly stored in the refrigerator to be brought out right before it was time to cut. The inside color would reveal whether the baby is a boy or a girl. Shortly after the ceremony was finished and dinner was served, I went to retrieve the cake from the refrigerator. With the mother and sister of the groom standing next to me, we opened the box and we admired the cute cake. I soon saw that the color was peaking through the frosting. I covered it with my hands and politely asked them to get Nicole & Jeff.

Nicole & Jeff stepped up to cut the cake and all their family and friends gathered around to see...would this be a boy or a girl?

It's a boy Congratulations Nicole & Jeff. This month, they will welcome their new son! Best wishes to all three of you.
