It’s a pretty crazy story of fate… Dan and some college buddies plan a sailing trip in Croatia they’ve talked about for years, a girl drops out at the last minute, and by way of an acquaintance Nicole ends up taking her spot. They clicked instantly, and the rest is history. Hearing everyone at Nicole and Dan’s wedding recount the story of the “now famous” sailing trip was one of our favorite things about their wedding weekend, topped only by the fact that we got to work with amazing people who kept the dance floor packed all night partying to dueling pianos… a unique wedding to match the unique way they met.
