Nina and Tommy

How We Met

We met at my cousin’s wedding. The truth? He Facebook messaged me on a whim about 2 months before, only saying “Hi”. I kept waiting for the rest, but it never came! 2 months later with still nothing more than a “Hi”, I saw Tommy as a groomsman in my cousin’s wedding and decided I would say “Hi” to him! This time it was Tommy who had nothing to say! But if you ask me, it was because he seemed so bewildered. The next day he Facebook messaged me to talk about the wedding, and now we are planning one of our own!

Tommy and I have both been nerds before it was trendy! We love to see our nerdy interests in person–whether it is attending a Meat Loaf concert, a Wrestling Event or going to a Comic Convention, big or small. The icing on the cake is that we decided to get married on Star Wars Day, May 4th.

How He Asked

I woke up on Easter Morning and Tommy was VERY anxious for me to get out of bed! The Easter Bunny left me something, he said! I found a beautifully wrapped box, which concealed a statue of Mickey Mouse proposing to Minnie Mouse. (Remember, I said we are nerds!) When I opened the box, Tommy was on his knee just like Mickey in the statue. “You’re the Minnie to my Mickey. You’re my best friend. Will you marry me?”
