This sweet couple is far beyond ordinary. You have a drop-dead-gorgeous, athletic model as the bride, and a strong and handsome man as the groom. Making for a match made in heaven!
This love story all began at Vanguard University. Nicole was running a research project and needed participants. She was advised to go talk to several classes to get the amount of participants she needed. As she was recording information for her project she saw this “tall, blonde, good looking guy” walk past her. She instantly got butterflies and thought “theres no way he’s single.” Low and behold, they soon came to realize that they were both very much single with open arms to the Lords plans.
Towards the end of the research project Sam ended up asking Nikki if she would go on a study date with him. She agreed to the study date, and it was then that they both realized there was something very special about the other person.
Together as a couple they enjoy mini golf, watching movies, and even being adventurous such as hiking.
Their adventurous side is how Sam popped the question. They decided to take a hike in their spare time. To Nikki it was just like any other hike they’ve been on, but to Sam he had MUCH bigger plans. On this hike there is an American flag posted at the top, at this spot you can see all of orange county. So, of course, Sam thought that would be the perfect spot to propose. Doing something they love in a beautiful location.
As they reached the flag they started chatting and looking out at their beautiful view. Soon enough Sam pulled out a ring, got down on his knee, and popped the question that would change their lives forever!
May 29th, 2021 they committed their lives to each other, for forever.
Cheers to sharing your bed Nicole! Here’s a sweet note from your then fiancé and your now Husband.
My dear Nikki,– Sam 5/28/2021
Tonight is your last night to yourself, as well as mine. Tonight is the last night you’ll have to think about being married. Tonight is the last night you’ll have a bed to yourself. Please know that I am excited and thankful for everything that I just stated above, and know that my desire is to fulfill those tomorrow. I’ll be with you, you’ll be married, and I’ll be sharing your bed. I love you babe.
You guys! You did it!! A beautiful wedding day, a stunning bride and handsome groom. This day couldn’t have been more perfect for the two of you. Although covid-19 changed a few things around on you, you kicked it in the butt.
You brought so much joy and energy. Yes, it was your big day, but you shined the love of Jesus across your faces! Thank you for being amazing clients. For trusting me with capturing this beautiful day of yours. And, most of all for being so easy going, relaxed and a joy to work with.
Love you both! I will and am praying for your future and your marriage. It get’s so difficult, but keep on pushing through. Turn to God for everything, and keep the communication clear between the two of you. It is SO SO worth the time and energy.
Congratulations you love birds! <3
with love, – Lyss
