Meet Nickelle and Joe, two people who share a love of the ocean, traveling, delicious food, exotic wine, and fun date nights. They met when Nickelle answered an add for a server position at the restaurant owned by Joe’s family. They worked side-by-side for many years and developed a close friendship. One fateful night changed everything as Joe took a chance and leaned in for a kiss on New Year’s Eve of 2009. “POP, BOOM, BANG! Fireworks soar! Sirens go off! Electricity shoots through the roof! And the two took a chance and embarked on an incredible, passionate, romantic journey that tops even the most epic friend to love-of-their-life transitions (sorry Chandler and Monica).” We couldn’t resist putting in their version of that moment because it is a perfect representation of their personalities. These two are always ready to make you laugh and they bring out a smile in everyone they encounter. We hope you enjoy their Palos Verdes engagement photos we can’t wait until April of 2017 when we get to capture their La Venta Inn wedding day and share the next chapter of their love story.
