Meet our Couple!
We are so excited to share that we’ve selected our winning couple for the wedding we are throwing during our February First Friday! Read on for their adorable Delaware love story that Bethany wrote as the winning submission:
“Nick and I have known each other for almost our entire lives. We both went to Delaware Hayes together, and I knew him as my big brothers annoying best friend. Funny how things turn out isn’t it? I currently work at Schultz Elementary School and Nick is a Nuclear Engineer for the Navy. He is currently stationed in Seattle Washington, so I get to see him every so often when he isn’t deployed. We got engaged over the summer on the 4th of July, he surprised me in downtown Delaware right before the fireworks and proposed! I was shocked in more ways than one to say the least! We both love our hometown of Delaware! First Fridays are Nick and I favorite things to do together. Seattle is a beautiful place, but we both agreed that Delaware is our home, it is where we will stay. And I couldn’t imagine getting married anyplace else!!”
