Theresa and Nicholas

How We Met

Nick and I met our senior year of high school. Our close friends at the time were also dating, so we met in a group. The first night we met, we went sledding and were cold. We went inside to warm up and that was my opportunity to finally talk to him. I thought he was cute the first minute I met him! That same night, we ended up kissing and he sang to me when “You Look Me in The Eyes” by the Jonas Brothers. From that night forward, I knew there was something special about this guy and I could already see myself marrying him. We started dating a few weeks later.

How He Asked

Fast forward five and a half years, we’re graduating college and starting the next chapter of our lives. After the commencement ceremony, we were taking pictures outside the education building, where I took the majority of my courses. Nick and I were the last to take photos out of my family and friends. Nick’s sister called me over to help me adjust my cap and fix my hair. This gave Nick the perfect opportunity to get on one knee while my back was turned. When I turned back around, he was on one knee and told me he had an important question to ask me. He asked me to take this next step as we enter the next chapter of our lives, all while being surrounded by our loved ones. I cried happy tears and said yes!
