I love working at Colonial Heritage, and its not just because I adore Stacy Krick.  The property is beyond gorgeous and … goody for me, the “load in” is one of the easiest in town!

The lucky couple are Katie & Nick, and they traveled from California for this destination celebration!


The Love Story of Katie and Nick

How does a young girl who started out in New Jersey and a young boy who started out in Florida meet? At a Drake Concert, of course.  June…2012.

Katie thought that Nick was really cute and personable.  She also thought that he was very outgoing and had high self-esteem.

And…he was kind of funny and he wasn’t afraid to be the center of attention, which she loved.

Nick thought….. “Daaaaaaammmmmm”

Their first few months as friends, they didn’t actually go on a date. 

As true millennials, they texted and Skyped .  Of course, this was necessary since she was at ODU, and he was at Penn State. 

Their first “actual” date was to the romantic establishment known as “Cheeseburger in Paradise”. 

Shortly after this “first date”, Nick drove to visit Katie at ODU, and when he showed up…he had roses….then he kissed her for the first time.

Katie fell in love first…. But it was Nick who actually SAID it first.

Fast forward to New Year’s Eve, 2016.  They were at Katie’s parents “Now Famous” New Year’s Eve Party! 

Nick said a “late” present had been sent to his parent’s home and they had to go out to the pool house to get it…

Then Nick started telling Katie how much he loved her and how he couldn’t picture a life without her….then he got down on one knee and proposed.

When they went back inside, everyone already knew what was happening, and the celebration began!!!!

And now in front of family and friends, it is time for another first….their first dance as husband and wife.
