“Nick and I met our freshmen year at UCSB. When Halloween rolled around, a bunch of us were going to go out, duh. I decided on dressing up as Tinker Bell. Nick, without me asking or anything, decided to dress up as my Peter Pan. He even wore tights!!! He and I were pretty much inseparable, constantly texting and hanging out. We were on the beach dreading our Chemistry test with my roommate and a friend. It was dark but the stars were so clear. We saw a shooting star and both made a wish. I wished for an A on my chem test (typical). Before we left the beach he gave me a real kiss. He said his wish just came true. On November 26th, right after Thanksgiving break, he officially asked me to be his girlfriend. And that was that. Seven years later on November 26th, he asked me to be his wife.”

Errol and I met in nursing school ( I know!!!) what attracted me most to him was his goofiness. He has such a fun personality, which I cannot get enough of. We dated for about 6 years before taking the next step. We understand each other like no one does. We’re each other’s best friends. We already knew we wanted to be together. It was our day off together and we had planned a trip to San Francisco. Errol surprised me with a helicopter tour of the city. When we landed and were having our picture taken, all of a sudden I see him getting on his knee and a little blue box in his hand. I immediately started to cry. I was beyond excited and surprised!!! It was just perfect.
The most memorable party about my wedding day was seeing my parents happy and by my side. Nothing made my heart smile more than seeing them smile and enjoy the big day with me.
- From the beginning I knew I wanted to keep things very simple and elegant. I wanted the main focus of our wedding to be US…so I went with a more romantic theme. With having such busy schedules DIY was not an option. Aubrey saw my vision and brought it to life.
