The pair had gone on a trip to Walt Disney World for Nicole's birthday, and were returning home when Nicole noticed a string of lights in their driveway."I thought Danny's mum and step-dad had decorated our house for Christmas," Nicole said. "But Danny took me by the hand and I saw a big tent in our backyard, with our family lined up outside it."Behind me I hear Danny saying 'you know how much I love you, right?' - that's when I realised I was about to get engaged."When we walked into the tent I saw more family and friends were there. He brought me into the middle of the tent and proposed, I was so happy, I couldn't believe it."
According to Nicole, Danny's favourite moment of the day was her face as they approached the tent - she has framed this photo and placed it on his nightstand
However, the proposal was only the first major life event for Nicole and planned by her husband-to-be for that evening."I said hi to everyone and Danny asked me to come inside to the house and talk to him," she said. "I assumed he just wanted to process what happened."In the bedroom he told me he loved me and he said, 'If you want, I have everything set up to get married'."There was a dress and tux hanging there in the bedroom. His dad had gotten ordained that morning. There was no pressure because our friends and family thought it was just an engagement party, he told me to think about it."But I didn't need to think about it. Suddenly all my jitters and anxiousness went away because I knew I wanted to marry him. I just said yes."
Not even their friends and family knew about the wedding - as Danny had told them it was an engagement party
Nicole says she would not have coped well with planning a wedding. "Stress is not good with lupus. I would have been sick the majority of the time, I wouldn't have enjoyed it."It's been a tough time with me being sick and Danny helping me with everything."What if we'd planned the wedding then on the wedding day I'm sick? So this took all that stress away."
Danny picked out the wedding dress with Nicole's mother and bought it in two sizes, with the smaller size a perfect fit
Despite the short turnaround, Nicole said everything went ahead without a hitch - including a hasty arrangement of her 'man of honour'."I had joked with my brother Mike in the past that I wished I could have a best man because he's my best friend," she said."When I was getting ready, Mike came into the room and asked to be my man of honour. That was the best thing ever."The wedding was perfect with us surrounded by our family and friends. I felt so loved."It was like a fairy-tale. There had to have been people watching over us for it to run as perfectly as it did."By Tom Gerken and George Pierpoint, UGC & Social News Team
