Nicole and Ryan met through mutual friends in San Francisco during the summer of 2010. He was taken by her bright smile and kind personality, and she was struck by his easygoing honesty and charming blue eyes. Â She was surprised when he immediately asked her on a date the day after they met, but he saw no reason to wait. Â After dating for the rest of the summer, they agreed that they didnât want their relationship to end when she returned to Southern California to finish her undergraduate degree at CSU Long Beach and he remained in the Bay Area working at Google. After many phone calls and flights from SFO to LGB, Nicole graduated and returned to the Bay Area to begin a Master of Public Policy program at Mills College in Oakland.
In the years since, Ryan and Nicole moved to Mountain View, where he works as an engineer and she works as a health policy consultant. Â With each day, their relationship continues to grow and deepen. She loves his patience and self-sacrifice, as evidenced by his willingness to steadfastly support her in her education and career. Meanwhile, he loves that she is trustworthy, dependable, and as smart as she is pretty. Â They connect over their willingness to indulge each otherâs insatiable sweet tooths and their love for animals, which is chiefly directed toward a handsome little tabby named Skrilla.
After five years together, Ryan and Nicole are excited to continue their journey and celebrate their love with their friends and family.Â They hope you can make it to share their special day!
