Nicole and Kyle
How We Met
Me and Kyle met as I visited the East Coast visiting on a trip from sunny California. He was so sweet, tall and handsome, and definitely made a first impression! We lived across the country from each other focused on our own lives, until I finally moved across the country to work as a Health Inspector a year later. Reunited, Kyle helped me adjust to this new environment, the new East Coast scene, and made me feel so welcome as I started my career. Ironically, he a worked as a Chef—and we already had a connection. Feeling as though we’ve known each other for years, after a few months of dating, we finally became Official. We’ve been together for 3.5 years until he finally popped the question!
How He Asked
Little did I know that the start of our Happily Ever After would start on a gorgeous morning in Napa Valley, CA, where the sunshine beamed down on the vines at the peak of grape harvest season. I was celebrating my Birthday weekend, a whole trip that I had planned for my then boyfriend and close friends and family as we were all first-timers in Wine Country. On the very last day of our trip–my actual Birthday, little did I know that Kyle had a devised an intricate plan of his own for that morning. As part of his plan, his cousin, who happens to be a photographer, had asked us to model for some pictures in between the grape vines with the beautiful Tuscan inspired Castle in the background. Kyle took my hands, leaned in for a kiss, then nervously started shaking as he called me his “Princess forever”. The next thing I knew, he was down on one knee, asking “Will you marry me?” I was so shocked and did not gauge what was happening until maybe a whole minute later! So full of excitement and surprise, I finally said YES! to the Prince of my dreams.
