Nicole and Michael met like many modern Jews do today: on JDate. Sparks flew immediately and the girl that never wore shorts fell in love with the boy who enjoyed nature. Michael is very calm and humble. Nicole is full of energy and passion. Opposites attracted and created an attractive couple. Together, they balanced each other out and spent the next two-and-a-half years enjoying the outdoors and doing everything and anything together. Nicole and Michael didn’t fall in love, as falling is never good. They grew to love each other for their differences and similarities!
In May of 2008, on an ordinary morning, Michael and Nicole crawled out of bed and put on sweats to get some exercise on the famous Lyon Street Steps of San Francisco. In the middle of their walk, Michael asked Nicole to slow down and stop so he could catch his breath. The feisty Nicole ignored his request because she wanted to keep her heart rate up. Determined, Michael asked if he could have a hug. How could a girl in love ignore that? As they embraced, Michael started to talk about love, and he was on his knee with a ring in his hand and that monumental question on his lips. In complete shock, Nicole cried and joined him on the ground. At a landmark in the city by the bay, Nicole and Michael filled their hearts in San Francisco, and a gorgeous wedding sprinkled with personal and traditional touches followed 16 months later.
Mazel tov, Nicole and Michael!
