This two day extravaganza started in Vegas. Mike and I met up with Nick and Lisa at Fremont Street after they were married on the New York-New York Roller Coaster. Seriously, how awesome of a ceremony is that? So we met with them at Fremont and broke some rules. (Kind of.) The first day was just the precursor for the awesomeness of day two. Day two took place in San Diego. This was the first time Mike and I have flown from Vegas and back in the same day. Crazy. So day two took place at the Sandstone Cliffs in Cali. This included an epic hike in flip flops. Yeah. I gave up. Mike didn’t and the result was pretty great. They also wanted to do a TTD so there was some holi powder thrown around as well. I’ll include their pretty great stories as well.
How they met, as told by Nick:
“We both got dragged out last minute by friends to a local show in Baltimore. She noticed my shoes which have Freddy Kreuger on them (whom she loves) so that got us talking. Upon further discussion we realized that we knew A LOT of the same people and have been to a lot of the same places at the same time without even knowing each other, so we already had a indirect connection to one another. We soon became inseparable and haven’t looked back since.”
Their proposal story:
“Our anniversary falls on the 15th. Our (official) 6-month mark fell on Feb 15th 2013. I had already bought her a ring from a gumball machine while we she was meeting my son for the first time in Wisconsin for his 4th birthday, but I already knew she was the one so I had plans to propose on the 15th of Feb with a real ring( she still wears both rings to this day). But me being the person I am couldn’t wait so i had the idea to create our ‘Valengagaversary’ On the eve of Feb 13th we were standing in the kitchen being cute and what not and I couldn’t wait any longer. We just started holding each other and rocking back and forth and I made the comment “Is this how we’re going to dance on our wedding day?” and promptly pulled out the ring and received a yes. So 13th being our Engagement Day, 14th being V-Day and the 15th being our anniversary therefore creating the ‘Valengagaversary’.”
