Tick tock, tick tock. Nicole was having her watch fixed at a local watch shop when she looked up to see a dashing gentleman and thought, "I'm going to marry that man." The problem: her friend, the watch store owner, would not introduce her to him. "He's unavailable," she advised; this man, Sam, was a widow, single father to a daughter, and not looking to date.

Having felt love at sight, Nina was delighted to cross paths with Sam later a holiday party where she introduced her charming self, and Sam became smitten. As a mother of two young boys herself, Nicole and Sam first bonded over parenthood, and their love story unfolded.

With Nicole's sons at her side as she walked down the isle, Nicole and Sam held a Jewish ceremony with their closest friends and family on the beautiful grounds of Estancia La Jolla gorgeously decorated with floral designs from Compass Floral.

Nicole and Sam, congratulations! Thank you for asking me to document your special day and I wish you both an eternity of happiness!
