The Couple’s Love Story:
Joanna & Nick met in November of 2010 through a mutual friend that Nick had gone to high school with but went to college at James Madison University with Joanna. They hit it off immediately and after a few dates and lots of adventures, they were “official.” After four years of dating, Nick surprised Joanna on on November 1st 2014 in their apartment in Arlington by putting together a photo album of their recent trip to Europe with a very special note at the end.
The Couple’s Wedding Inspiration:
Joanna & Nick’s inspiration was to have a classic, romantic feel that had a touch of English flare since Joanna is originally from London. They hoped that the ceremony would be personable and that the entire night would be an inclusive event so that their friends and family would get to know them as a couple.
When asked what their most memorable part of the day was, their answer was the ceremony – “we really enjoyed hearing the other person’s vows which we didn’t know ahead of time. most memorable moment was that after a cloudy day right as the ceremony began the sun came out.” They also really enjoyed the 3 speeches by Joanna’s dad, Nick’s best man, and Joanna’s maid of honor.
Joanna & Nick took a trip to Saint John in the U.S.Virgin Islands right after the wedding. They look forward to whatever the future holds for them as a married couple.
