FIRST things first: Nick and Savannah, y’all know how to rock the romance out of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah!
Secondly, if you’ve read my blog about how I met my husband, you will know I am obsessed with love stories that just “happen.” Nick and Savannah’s meet-cute is something out of a romantic comedy and seriously so freakin’ sweet!
And, it all starts with a kayak adventure.
Here’s how one destined adventure changed Nick and Savannah’s lives forever:
Savannah is from Knoxville and was visiting a friend in Florida. One day during Savannah’s trip, her friend, friend’s family and Savannah decided to go on a guided kayak tour. Her friend’s family adopted a little boy and as he was putting on his life jacket Savannah commented on how cute the little boy was.
At the sound of Savannah’s voice, their tour guide looked up… his eyes met Savannah’s eyes…
And, Savannah immediately turned away... wide-eyed and blushing, she whispered to her friend “Did you see that guy?!”
“That guy” was Nick, and Nick wasn’t supposed to work that day.
It just so happened that Nick’s friend got sick and needed Nick to fill his shift. Nick’s friend told him that it was “just a family,” so he rolled up, hair disheveled and completely not put together.
When Nick saw Savannah, he was immediately taken aback by her and was just as nervous as she was during the guided tour.
After their immediate connection, Savannah said she was shaking throughout the entire day while they were flirting.
Although the kayak flirting only lasted for a few hours, destiny was just gettin’ started with these two…
Two months later,
the kayak company, who hosted the tour, posted photos from their excursion on Facebook. Savannah and her friend’s family were tagged in the photos and Nick liked the album.
She casually – okay, intentionally – stalked him on Facebook and eventually friend requested him. Savannah says she was convinced he did it deliberately, since he didn’t like any of the other albums, but Nick said he “just liked it.” RIGHT. We believe you, Nick ;)
Nick messaged Savannah, almost immediately after her request, and the rest was history!
When Nick proposed,
he took Savannah kayaking - specifically back to the place where they first met.
He brought all of his camera gear to document the moment. Savannah questioned it but brushed it off.
Once he got to the floating dock where he wanted to propose, he pulled the ring out of his backpack and all Savannah could say was “Stop it! Stop it!”
BUT, obviously, next came the “yes” - even if his grandma is still convinced otherwise. ;)
Cheers to Nick & Savannah - They got married last May!
There is so much more to this love story, but as they were telling us about their lives you could tell these newlyweds were just absolutely in love and completely down for anything when it came to their photos. We had such a variety of shots and an amazing time!
