Rachael and Nick
how we met
Nick and I met while living in St. Petersburg, FL. I was completing my dental school residency and Nick was living in St. Pete, working with his dad making custom furniture. On our first date, we attended trivia night at a local dive bar and won first place!
how he asked
Nick took me to Key West for my 29th birthday on the Fourth of July weekend. Key West has been somewhere nick and I have always loved visiting, but we had never been there together. When we arrived, we went to Mallory square to watch the sunset. To capture this moment, he asked someone to take our picture, but he actually had the phone recording and he got down on one knee and proposed!
He had just given me a necklace for my birthday of an anchor, and during his proposal, nick said “Rachael, I love you with all my heart, you are both my anchor and my sails. I want you by my side on this lifelong adventure. Will you marry me?” Nick even handmade the ring box out of claro walnut.
