In December 2012, while Kelly was on vacation in Puerto Vallarta with her parents, Nick took her to a beautiful restaurant on the beach. They had a candlelit, five-course meal, and Nick asked Kelly to marry him.
Nick moved back to North Carolina to begin the doctorate of physical therapy program at Elon University. They spent the first nine months of their engagement long distance until Kelly moved to Greensboro this past September.
The couple were married March 8 at St. Joseph Church in Alliance, and their reception was at the McKinley Grand Hotel.
