The Story

Connecticut-raised Nikki and Michigan-raised Jim would never have met. Jim went to MIT. Nikki went to the University of Colorado. Jim works in engineering. Nikki is a school teacher. But three years ago, Jim moved to Park City for work, where Nikki was living. They quickly bonded through a love of friends, mountain biking, skiing, dogs, wine and of course, Game of Thrones, and became best friends.

But, after a couple years of platonic friendship, Nikki and Jim realized what they had was much more. Their friendship had turned to love through the skiing, biking, and wine and they began dating. A little over a year later, Jim took Nikki on a hike with their pups, dropped down on one knee and proposed.

They are so excited to have met their matches and cannot wait to get married in August!
