You just know. I mean, you get an impression of someone fairly quickly and it’s easy to decide if you like that impression or not. That’s basically what Nicole told Ben before they met for a first date at Restaurant Good Luck in Rochester, NY. He knew he had to make it count, but after all he wasn’t going to be someone else. So he showed up, she showed up, and they talked the night away making history as they ate delicious food and bonded over their shared love of reading.
There is something to being so sure about the world that you know a good thing when you see it. You just don’t let it get away, and Nicole and Ben have held on to each other to make a relationship that will last the test of time. Last year on the coast of Maine Ben surprised Nicole with the most beautiful bezel set engagement ring and asked her to marry him. She said yes.
One of the most impressive parts of the day was Nicole + Ben’s ability to keep things under budget. She found her dress from ModCloth on sale for $53 and added a beaded sash to finish her look. Many of the detailed decorations were from Etsy and what they didn’t buy they made themselves!
