August Couple of the Month ~ Stephanie + Nick, Arnaldo's Banquet Center
My name is Stephanie Hindman and I can't wait to marry my best friend Nicholas. Nick works for a crane company in Toledo, OH as a Crane technician and I am a full time Nanny in Northville, MI. Nick and I kind of met through my younger brother Kris (Nick is 2.5 years younger than I am). What had happened was I was living with my parents at the time with my three brothers and my youngest brother Kris was having a get together of friends in the basement with music. I had gone down stairs to tell my brother to turn down the music, as I was making my way back to the stairs, some "kid" jumped in front of me and says "Hi!!" (Nick) and I was irritated at the time because of my brother so I just gave him a disgusted look and walked around him and continued my way upstairs. Well thanks to social media and Facebook Nick was able to connect with me and introduce himself a little better than a quick unconventional "Hi!!" in my parents basement. 3 months later we went on our 1st date and have been inseparable since, almost 3 years later and going strong.
After a year of dating Nick and I took a trip to Playa Del Carman Mexico where he proposed to me in front of our resort in the middle of these glowing fountains, it was pretty awesome and saying "Yes!" has been the best decision of my life. Planning our wedding has been somewhat a good mixture of stressful, fun, and overwhelming all rolled into one but we decided on a Rustic wedding theme with manzanita branches, mason jars, and wood slab centerpieces. We'll be having our Ceremony at the Taylor Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Taylor, MI and our wedding Reception will be held at Arnalado's Banquet Center in Riverview, MI. Our wedding colors are brown, orange and green and we'll each be having 10 members of the bridal party (5 Bridesmaids and 5 Groomsman). It's hard to believe our big day is coming up so fast on September 21 but it's something I'll waited my whole life for, I can't wait to marry the person I want to spend my whole life with.
