Nelly and Nigel Story :

  • They got engaged on February 21, 2019


  • They have been dating since 2009 so 10 years before they got engaged


  • The anniversary of their first date is February 21, 2009.
    Nelly and Nigel went to White Rock Beach, where they had their first kiss, for their anniversary.They had dinner at Moby Dick’s restaurant and then went for a walk near the pier.
    They sat at a bench and Nigel gave to Nelly a scrapbook of photos of them throughout the 10 years they’ve been together.
    On the last page, there was a note that said “Will You Marry Me?” and Nelly looked up and Nigel was kneeling with an engagement ring.
  • Their sisters and their closest friends were hiding nearby taking pictures of the whole thing.


  • Nigel designed Nelly’s engagement ring through the Brilliant Earth website.
    There was a delay in shipping and it almost didn’t arrive in time for their anniversary.
    It’s a round diamond set in a flower shaped crown with a simple platinum band.
    Their wedding bands are simple bands that Nigel’s mother made.


  • They were lucky enough to have the fall engagement.
