Wedding Date: June 20, 2020

“Oh, I’m going to marry that girl,” Nick Sullivan told his friends after meeting Holly Clauson at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. The 18-year-olds were undeniably attracted to each other when they met in their dorm hall, living only two floors apart. Five years later, down on one knee, Nick asked Holly to marry him at The Dairy Store, where they had their first date. “It was the easiest yes I’ve ever said,” she recalls. Rain was in the forecast on the wedding day but it miraculously cleared up; with a beautiful 75-degree day, they had the outdoor ceremony they had always dreamed of, with a special “first look” as their favorite moment. The wedding featured light and airy nature-inspired details, a token of their love for the outdoors. Half the tables were decorated to match the bride’s bouquet of hydrangeas, while eucalyptus and votive candles adorned the others. Under the greenery and globe lights hung from the antler chandelier, everyone played bride-and groom trivia, then shared fun stories about the newlyweds.
