A Walk to Remember
Nicole, a textile artist, and Kayvon, an attorney, met their junior year at Cornell in 2004. They dated for a semester, but then didn’t see each other for 7 years and lost touch. Kayvon eventually reached out via Facebook to reconnect when he was visiting a friend in Boston, which was where Nicole was living at the time. She agreed to meet up with him and their chemistry quickly became undeniable.
The two were relaxing on a trip on the north shore of Kauai where they were staying with a friend. Kayvon asked Nicole if she wanted to go for a walk at sunrise one morning. Little did she know, it would be life-changing! Once they were in front of the mountain on Tunnel’s Beach, Kayvon popped the big question. Without a moment of hesitation, Nicole said “YES!”
Nicole and Kayvon tied the knot at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas. They were living in Austin at the time and they wanted a venue that would show off the city that they loved so dearly. Nicole really wanted to get married outside by the water and Laguna Gloria in Austin offered the perfect combination of open air and sophistication that they were looking for in their ideal venue. Nicole wore a Cymbaline Gaia dress with beautiful lace and a high neck. They opted for Cool Haus Ice Cream Sandwiches in lieu of a cake. Their Persian wedding ceremony and reception was one of a kind and it couldn’t have been more perfect for them. The newlyweds then flew off for their honeymoon to Bahia, Brazil.
