Abby was reporting on a 2A playoff baseball game in May of 2019. The team she was covering came back from a 9-1 deficit and scored 8 runs in the bottom of the 7th. She was filming and updating on Twitter and the game was retweeted by other reporters in Dallas and Waco. Derek saw one of the posts and followed Abby on Twitter. She followed him back! He immediately messaged her and their relationship started from there! (Side note: they have very differing, very humorous stories on how quick the “follow back” was). They became “official” on June 15, 2019.

Tribeca Rooftop was the most amazing wedding venue for our quintessential New York City event. It blended our Nigerian and Italian cultures beautifully.

After 5 years, Tristan gave Nicole the biggest surprise of her life when he proposed to her under her favorite tree in the backyard of her childhood home. Nicole told me that the tree had been wiped out by many south Florida hurricanes throughout the years and always managed to grow back taller and stronger. She always thought it was a beautiful metaphor for life, and Tristan saw it as a metaphor for their life together. Today, both Nicole and Tristan agree that even with COVID and all of the difficult things that life threw at them during their engagement, they couldn’t have been more excited to be together forever!
