More than nine years later, Nichole and Dan returned to the spot where it all began. They became Miami Mergers just a stone's throw away from the dorm where they met as freshman. At the time, they were new to Oxford, new to the big campus and new to each other. Neither had any idea that less than 10 years later, they would be married.
"Dan was the first boy I met on campus on freshman move-in day," Nichole said. "I lived in the room above Dan and needed some ideas on how to make all the furniture fit."
Dan was dating someone else at the time but as the two got to know each other, he realized how great Nichole was. Her caring nature tops his list of favorite things about his new wife.
"Our first summer of dating, she did a study abroad program in Russia," he said. "I found myself missing her so much during that time that I had to call just to hear her voice. Even though I racked up a $700 phone bill it was worth it."
Nichole and Dan are so loved and respected by their family and friends, and it was fun to see how much fun everyone had celebrating these two. Thank you so much for asking Nathan and I to be a part of your day, guys. It was such a meaningful wedding for both of us, and we wish you all the happiness in the world!
Most hilarious bridal party I've ever worked with. Hands down. :D
So pretty. :) Nichole and I did gymnastics together at Miami. Never in a million years would I have guessed I would photograph her wedding.
An equally amazing group of guys.
I love that one up there. Dan is probably telling Nichole how amazing she looks. Just a hunch! :)
Dan, you look like a celebrity waving to his fans. That or the president. I am your paparazzi.
Dennison Hall! The place where it all began!
