Nicholas and Tori met at a party in August of 2002. Tori went with her roommate to the birthday party of her roommate's boyfriend's fraternity brother. Tori was having a horrible time and decided to go back to her dorm room. After going back, Tori's roommate called her and said that somebody really wanted to meet her. Tori decided to go back, and that's where she met Nick. She thought he was so cute! They ended up staying up all night and talking. The dated for a short time, and then went their separate ways. They remained friends, and Tori remained in love. Several years later in 2010, they decided to give it another shot.
Since 2010, they have been through everything imaginable together-from Tornados to graduations...from cross country moves to long distance love...from first homes to beach living. Through it all, they only grew stronger and more in love.
In 2016, the couple moved to the coast of Georgia when Nicholas took a job on Saint Simons Island. The day they moved and closed on their new home (October 3, 2016), Nick took Tori out for a celebratory dinner at Driftwood Bistro on Jekyll Island. Nicholas was extremely on edge and fidgety during the entire dinner and evening. Tori just figured it was from exhaustion. After dinner, they went to the beach with a bottle of champagne to toast their new beginning. As the sun was setting, Nicholas asked Tori to marry him. After the shock wore off, Tori enthusiastically said YES!
They truly cannot wait to begin this next chapter and to have all of their friends and family help them celebrate!
