Nichols – Connolly

 BALTIMORE, Md. — Emily Anne Nichols and John James Connolly III were united in marriage May 19, 2012, at Gramercy Mansion Garden. The Rev. Russell Patterson officiated the 6 p.m. ceremony, which was followed by a reception in the Gramercy Carriage House.
The bride was escorted by her father, Carl Nichols, and attended by her sister, Melissa Mills of Burlington, as matron of honor.
Her gown featured an ivory strapless, form-fitting taffeta bodice with drop waist and overall ruching with cascading floral appliques covering the entire floor-length skirt and chapel train. The headband included silk flowers to match her gown. She carried a clutch of yellow gerbera daisies, green hydrangea, dark purple lisianthus and greens with stems wrapped in ivory faced satin ribbon. A piece of the groom’s maternal grandmother’s wedding dress wrapped the stems of the bouquet as something old.
William Connolly of Essex, Md., stood as his brother’s best man.
The bride is the daughter of Carl and Jane Nichols of Mooresville and the granddaughter of James and Daisy Nichols of Salisbury and the late Burette and Helen Sloop. A 2002 graduate of Mooresville High School, Emily earned a degree in Management with concentration in International Business from East Carolina University in 2007. She also studied one year at the University of Vigo, Spain. She is a Project Director for Aysling Digital Media Solutions.
The groom is the son of John and Sandra Connolly II of Glenwood, Md., and the grandson of Marge and the late John Connolly of Staten Island, N.Y., and Herman and the late Nell Roberts of Grand Island, N.Y. A 2002 graduate of Mount Hebron High School, John received an Associate degree in Business from Howard Community College in 2005 and received a degree in Fire Science from the University of Maryland in 2012. He is employed by the Howard County Fire and Rescue Department.
Following a wedding trip to the mountains of North Carolina, the couple are making their home in Glen Burnie, Md.
