Nikki and Jason met immediately after college at a graduation party. Nikki was the only girl there that Jason didn’t already know so he started talking to her and they ended up talking all night until Jason ended up asking Nikki out on a date!
The couple remained just friends that went on dates for about a year and then Jason had an accident one night. Nikki was there for him while he healed and that was when they both realized it was true love.
Nikki was under the impression that she was going to Disney World to celebrate Jason’s dad’s 55th birthday. Jason had informed the group that he was going to surprise everyone with a behind the scenes tour of Epcot. When they arrived, they were escorted to an aquarium and he told everyone that the “tour” would begin soon. Jason had Nikki’s favorite character Minnie Mouse waiting to distract her with a few photo opportunities, and once everything was in place, Minnie brought Jason and Nikki over to the window to take some solo photos. A scuba diver appeared behind them and Nikki had no idea what was going on until Jason was down on one knee pointing to the scuba diver holding a sign that said “Nikki Will You Marry Me?” Once Nikki said Yes, Mickey Mouse appeared in the tank as a diver holding a congratulations sign. Nikki went to call her parents and before she could realize that she had no cell service, Minnie Mouse ran out with her parents!
Nikki and Jason who are both terrible dancers decided to turn to Fred Astaire to choreograph their first dance as a married couple. They went to lessons for a year and told their instructors they needed to do a dance that would reflect their fun and silly relationship dynamic. They shocked all their guests when they did a perfect routine to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Their friends are still talking about it!
