Nicole and Jeff were married at the Casa Marina Resort on December 14, 2013. Their love story is absolutely precious! Read Nicole’s account of their proposal below.
“We were going to Europe on Saturday September 15, 2012. Everyone thought he would propose in Europe.
“We have a friend named Matt who LOVES his birthday and he had been adament about us going out the night of September 14 for his birthday even though we were flying to Europe the next day. I didn’t want to go to dinner and was so angry at Jeff because we were supposed to go to the Mandarin Oriental in Miami. Matt was ‘running late’ and I was rushed to get there on time which is always a struggle in itself. We got a drink at the bar and after a few arguments back and forth walked down to the private beach to ‘meet our friends for some drinks before dinner’ with wine in paper cups (I was not pleased).
“When we got down there, Jeff asked to take a picture with my phone and I was confused and annoyed at him because I didn’t want to be out to begin with and was trying to explain how I hated the camera on my iPhone. He was trying to position me perfectly for what was to come. When I turned around, a guitar player started playing the song I had said I wanted our wedding song to be. I started saying ‘omg omg omg omg’ as I turned to see the guitar player. Then I turned back to Jeff, he got on one knee and proposed. It was PERFECT.
“The surprises were not done yet though … he took my phone from me because he wanted an hour of private time, he said, before I called anyone. He had a photographer down at the beach to capture every moment and took amazing pictures during this entire thing!! We walked to the other side of the beach area and he had a bottle of champagne waiting for us and told me he had rented a suite at the hotel for the night for us to spend a romantic evening together.
“When we got upstairs, I still hadn’t been able to speak with anyone. I opened the suite door and my whole family and his whole family were there waiting to celebrate with us. They had decorated the ENTIRE suite with roses (tons of them!!!!) and bought a lot of food and a cake and a lot of champagne. We all celebrated together. It couldn’t have been more perfect!!!!!
