Nikki Stadelmaier and Steven Walker are a Match.com miracle! She was ready to get rid of the dating site when they found each other. They met at a small restaurant down by her house where they had dinner. They had spinach dip as an appetizer, the spinach was in big chunks and got stuck in her teeth. She was mortified, but they laughed about it and had a great time. She still wasn't sure she was going to hear from him, but they have been inseparable ever since.
This perfectly matched couple loves to explore new restaurants and breweries. They have two dogs that are like their sons. Porter and Boomer.
The couple got engaged on March 25, 2019 on their anniversary. After a nice dinner, they went home and exchanged gifts. She had a card to open in which he said he wanted to take her shopping to have her help pick out the one gift that she had been waiting for. We all know what that gift was, right?
They went to Milanj Jewelers and picked out Nikki's ring. It just so happens, they had her ring in her exact size available! Steven however wouldn't let her wear it. Later, she went to leave the house for something and he told her to wait, that she was missing something. It was then that he officially proposed with the stunning ring.
They made plans of having a beach wedding. Even after a year of postponing due to Covid-19, the couple exchanged vows on a beautiful day in sunny Key West, Florida! They exchanged rings while the waves crashed against the pier and their loved ones witnessed them become husband and wife.
The oceanside reception was beautiful, and the wedding guests and bride and groom danced the night away!
Congratulations to you and your families!
