Courtney Nations and Brandon Azzari met in September of 2016 at a Jacksonville Jaguars football game. After a few text exchanges, they spent the next few weeks talking every single day! Ultimately figuring out that they had found their soulmate.
This adorable couple got engaged in March of 2019 in Venice, Italy. Brandon picked this date because 329 was the exit number off of I-95 where Brandon and Courtney always met halfway between their workplaces when first dating. Venice was the perfect location because Brandon is Italian, and Courtney loves being near water (lakes, rivers, oceans, pools). He proposed on the balcony of their hotel overlooking the city.
Key West became the perfect location to say I DO! The wedding ceremony took place in the courtyard of the famous Ernest Hemingway Home. Courtney's vintage collection of Hemingway novels made the trip and what a perfect wedding day it was! There wasn't a cloud in the sky. Following a perfect sunset at Fort Zachary Taylor, the newlyweds joined their guests on the private rooftop of the historic Bagatelle located on Key West's most famous street. Duval Street where Hemingway himself drank oh so many years ago.
Cheers to many years! So happy for you and your families!
