Four years ago today, we got engaged!
It was a big step for us. We met in high school, then reconnected during college break. We dated for eight years and we both knew we were ready, it just had to be the right time.
Ryan surprised Nicholas and proposed at our favorite art gallery. He conspired with the photographer to get Nicholas there for a “shoot” so she could build her portfolio, since gay marriage was just legalized in Florida two months earlier.
We ate a delicious meal while being serenaded by an acoustic guitarist. All while sitting in front of a wall of memories from our travels, family gatherings, selfies and many others. #NHIEguys
We called our parents and friends to tell them the news, just before writing each other notes and sealing them in a box with champagne that we opened on our wedding day.
It was truly an emotional and memorable day for the both of us. Back then, we didn’t share as much on social about our lives, but have grown to do so. We are so glad we can share stories and experiences like this with you! #NHIEguys ...
