Elise and Nick

how we met

Nick and I met teaching music at the same school. We were both elementary music teachers and really have a passion for what we do.

how they asked

Nick whisked me off to the outer banks on a school day! This was a very big to-do. I had no idea it was coming! He had to orchestrate substitutes for both of us at school and we just woke up Friday morning ready to go teach and he had pancakes and bacon ready – which I thought was strange because it was a school day but I figured, okay.. birthday breakfast. Then he told me we weren’t going into school and I was skeptical. But he told me to pack beach outfits and something nice and pjs because we were going on a trip! We drove 6 hours to OBX and when we got there and settled in to the air bnb, we walked down to the ocean and he proposed in a secluded stretch of beach. It was so wonderful. (And then I had to flag down a dog walker to get photos of him fake proposing because the first time was just us! Hahaha).

Special Thanks
