On April 28th, 2012, McCormick Ranch Golf Club had the honor of hosting the wedding of Nate and Nadine Bubeck. Nadine, a CBS-5 TV Personality and NadineOnTheScene.com Lifestyle Columnist, said her special day was “simply perfect”.
“Growing up in California, I always wanted to get married near water,” says Nadine, who fell in love with McCormick’s beautiful lake and Camelback Mountain backdrop. “The golf club is in our neighborhood; where Nate grew up… so it was not only stunning, but sentimental.”
Highlights of the wedding included a choreographed dance to “Long Ago and Far Away”, a five foot cake showcasing photographs of the newlyweds and an amazing fireworks spectacular.
Their Greek Orthodox ceremony was beautifully meaningful, concluding with the stepping of the glass, a Jewish wedding ritual. Their procession was all about The Beatles; Nadine walked down the aisle to “In My Life.”
The couple chose periwinkle and orange as their color scheme, what Nadine describes as “a spring-time joyful mix.” Nadine made sure to add a lot of personal touches, and the couple even smashed plates to celebrate their union (a Greek tradition).
As a kicker, their wedding was infused with video cameras because they were featured on TLC’s “Four Weddings,” a competitive reality show. Even though they didn’t win, Nate and Nadine agree their wedding was about a marriage, and they wouldn’t have changed a thing. “We’re now living our happily-ever-after,” said Nadine, “that’s the best prize of all.”
