After high school, they dated long-distance while at different universities, until both came together to graduate from Appalachian State University in 2013. From there, they moved to Raleigh, bought a condo, and were ready to settle down for good. So it was that Reynolds proposed with his grandmother Baba's ring (which fit Nicole flawlessly, no resizing needed) on a moonlit dock on Saint Martin. The duo made sure everything was just as romantic for their September nuptials at The Omni Grove Park Inn by infusing the celebration with glamour galore. Opulent crystal chandeliers graced the canopy of their clear tent and the grandest of touches, an Art Deco-inspired mirror, stood tall as their altar backdrop. And what's the most memorable part of their whole soirée, you ask? As the couple recessed, the stage curtain opened to reveal a band that jumped into "All You Need is Love," (à la Love Actually), stealing hearts, one and all.
