Andrea and Nick were married on May 18th, with a ceremony and a reception at the Latitude 41 at the Mystic Seaport.
Andrea went to Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) and Nick went to Daniel Webster College (DWC). Andrea’s roommate freshman year had a boyfriend from high school that went to DWC. He didn’t have a car so Nick would drive him to see Andrea’s roommate once in awhile. The friends made it a point to introduce Andrea and Nick because they figured if Nick also had someone he wanted to see at SNHU, he would be more willing to make the trip more often! It worked and Nick and Andrea have been together since fall of 2010!
Nick and Andrea went to Maine for a mini getaway vacation or that’s at least, what Andrea thought. It was late afternoon on a rainy day, but they decided to go walk on the sand bar to look for sea glass. Andrea had her head down looking for sea glass and when she looked up Nick was on one knee. She said yes, and had the ring on her finger before his knee even hit the ground! She had no idea he was going to propose; Nick pulled off the perfect surprise!
Andrea and Nick chose Latitude 41 in Mystic because it was on the Mystic River; they love spending time by the water and they just fell in love with the atmosphere. One of my favorite parts of the day was watching Nick’s son, Cooper (now officially Andrea’s step-son) enjoy the day. Not only was he one of the coolest kids (and a phenomenal dancer), he was fully present and emotional during the day. Right after the first kiss, he ran up to them and gave them the biggest hug as a congratulations. During Andrea’s fathers emotional speech to his babygirl, Cooper shed a tear and ran up to comfort him, which was an adorable act of kindness. It was so special watching Cooper and Andrea bonding – dancing together, hugging and giggling! Their little family is complete and I couldn’t be happier for them!
Andrea and Nick, thanks for inviting me to the party! There was an undeniable amount of love surrounding you on your wedding day and I know your crew has your back! Sending you guys the biggest congrats during this newlywed season!
