Fate had to strike not once, but twice, for Nicole and Joe. They first met on Halloween night in 2011, on a Haunted House limo ride with more than thirty people. But their introduction was brief and they went their separate ways. Almost a year later, they picked one another out of an even bigger crowd of forty people while tubing on the Colorado River. This time? They didn’t go their separate ways.
Their first date was two weeks later, with Joe making the drive all the way from Colorado Springs to Denver to take Nicole out for sushi and then to a Rockies game. Nicole didn’t want the date to end! Obviously, it did, but it was followed by years of more dates and making memories together. Joe decided to turn years into forever earlier this year.
Just after the clock struck midnight on January 1st, Joe pulled Nicole into the backyard. There was a waterfall, lights, flowers, and a bottle of champagne. Nicole remembers him telling her how it was fate that brought them together as he pulled out a ring and got down on one knee. She said yes!
They are getting married in January, 2017—in Mexico! They have such adventurous, independent spirits and I’m so excited for them to have a wedding that suits them so perfectly. Congrats to you both and can’t wait to capture all the fun in Mexico.
