I asked Nicole how they met and got engaged and she said, “Our love story began back in 2011. Thanks to some mutual friends we met in our kitchen. Seems like an odd place to meet your soon to be spouse but we wouldn’t of had it any other way. Some flirtatious banter was exchanged and of course Nicole was intrigued by Jonathan’s sarcasm and whit. The rest is history! Nothing could prepare us for the next 6 years of laughter, loss, and love. Jonathan decided to pop the question while we were visiting his father who was being cared for at MUSC. A dear friend of our families opened his home to Jonathan to ask Nicole to marry him. It was beyond beautiful and everything she could have ever hoped and dreamed of. Of course, the answer was yes! We then celebrated our wonderful news with our family in a tiny hospital room filled with love, tears, and laughter. Since that amazing day we have said goodbye to an irreplaceable person, we have bought our first home, gained 4 fur children, and will finally become husband and wife. We cannot wait to begin this new chapter in life and are thrilled to be celebrating it with all of you.”
They chose a different venue then the one they had now. Unfortunately due to some unexpected events they had to choose a different venue. As you can imagine, she was extremely distraught and frantic trying to find a beautiful space to host their reception within a reasonable price range. They recently moved to the Chapin area and found their venue while driving by. Nicole decided to reach out to the owner and schedule a tour with her sister-in-law. They were both blown away by how accommodating the owner was and how beautiful the space was. It was perfect for their wedding and Nicole felt like God had answered her prayers when he sent her to The Venue of Chapin.
“We are both very hard headed. Not such a romantic term to describe us but when we make our mind up about something it will take an act of congress to change it.” They have been together for 7 years and 9 months so it definitely works :)
I asked Nicole what they are most looking forward to on their wedding day and she said, “As cliché as it may sound we are both looking forward to just being married. We started our lives together on January 1st,2011 and on November 3rd, 2018 we will finally be able to continue our lives with same last name. Our love has endured many trials. After almost 8 years of us driving each other crazy we are still crazy about each other.”
