HIGHGATE – Sarah Elizabeth Nicksa, daughter of Gary and Kimberlee Nicksa, Wellesley, Mass., and Highgate Springs, was married to David Christopher Ryan Baker, son of Carolyn Baker, Sterling, Va., and Peter and Sandy Baker, Leesburg, Va., on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013. The 6 p.m. wedding service was officiated by Rev. Bill Cochran, on the Terrace overlooking the beautiful Lansdowne Resort golf course in Leesburg, Va.

Sarah is a 2006 graduate of Wellesley High School. She graduated from the School of Hospitality Management at Boston University and is currently employed as a conference planner for SIIM-a Virginia based non-profit imaging society. David is a 2000 graduate of Potomac Falls High School and graduated from George Mason University. He is a Manager for AMAZON in Northern Virginia.

The wedding party was comprised of family members and friends. Sarah’s Maid of Honor was college sorority sister, Ms. Jessica McKeown from Hoboken, N.J. Her Bridesmaids were sorority sister, Ms. Kasey Wickman from Brooklyn, N.Y., and cherished childhood friend, Ms. Brett Pettee from Wellesley, Mass. David’s Best Man was his brother, Andrew Baker from Sterling, Va. and the groomsman was Jeffrey Nicksa, brother of the bride, from Wellesley, Mass. Miss Madison Fuller (age two and a half) from Miami, Fla., was the Flower Girl and Mr. Noah Nicksa (age two and a half) from Farmington, Conn., was the ring bearer.

After the service, the wedding moved into a beautifully created space in the Clubhouse Ballroom of the Lansdowne Resort. Sarah, an event planner, worked hard to make sure every detail was attended to and the room had a fairy tale atmosphere. The shades of pink and gray were displayed throughout the ballroom and the flower arrangements were spectacular! Many thanks to all the family and friends who travelled to Virginia to celebrate Sarah and David’s wedding.

The couple honeymooned in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and then returned to their home in Sterling, Va., where their beloved French bulldog, Kevin, enthusiastically welcomed them!
