Carrie & Nick in Greeley, CO
It took some time for Carrie to realize her feelings for Nick. Nick, on the other hand, knew right away. The two met the summer before Carrie’s junior year at CU Boulder. They went on a single date, but Carrie wasn’t ready for a relationship. Still, the two became good friends and Nick remained patient and persistent.
The Bride Carrie Harms, 27, CPA
The Groom Nick Zawistowski, 28, engineer
The Date August 23
“I realized ‘the one’ I was looking for was right in front of me the whole time!” says Carrie. They dated for a year-and-a-half before Nick proposed. One morning he went downstairs for orange juice, but came back with three dozen roses and a ring instead. Carrie said “Yes!” without even looking at the ring. “Don’t you want to see it to make sure it’s not a Fruit Loop or something?” asked Nick. “I was so happy, I couldn’t have cared less if there had been a Fruit Loop in the box,” says Carrie.
