Nicole and Jimmy… At First Sight
Jimmy was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. He is an Air Traffic Controller and also serves part-time in the Air Force National Guard. Nicole was born in Chicago, IL and raised in Dallas, TX. She moved to Charlotte, NC one year ago and works in Human Resources. We both enjoy traveling, watching sports (Go Panthers!) and painting together.
They met at a bar in Charlotte, NC. Jimmy says he gave her a look from across the bar, and she was hooked. In reality, he never came up to Nicole and she wouldn’t leave before she spoke to him, so a friend asked him to come over and talk to Nicole. Jimmy agreed. The rest is history! Three years later they are now newlyweds!
-Where/When was the wedding? We were married on August 13, 2016 at the Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte, NC.
-Where did you get engaged? We got engaged at a fountain on the corner of Trade and Tryon St. in Uptown Charlotte. This happens to be where we had our first kiss. (We also went back to the fountain on our wedding night to take a picture.)
-Where was the Honeymoon? We are honeymooning in February 2017, and will be going to the Riviera Maya in Mexico.
-What was your first dance song? Never Felt This Way by Brian McKnight
-What was your favorite aspect of your wedding day? The reception! We had so much fun dancing with friends and family. The only downside was that it went by to fast!
-What is your favorite date night? We can’t decide on just on… When we go out, we enjoy getting dressed up and treating ourselves to a nice dinner. We often stroll around the area afterwards and enjoy each other’s company. If we stay in, we enjoy cooking a romantic dinner together, followed by painting.
-Do you have any advice for brides to be? Enjoy your day! I was skeptical about hiring a wedding planner because I enjoy planning and wanted to be involved in everything. The best decision I made was hiring a planner. She kept me sane throughout the whole planning process, and I was stress free my entire wedding weekend.
-Do you have any advice for grooms to be? Simply say, “Whatever you want, honey.”
