2941 Restaurant Wedding: Nikole + Jorge

Jorge and Nikole met in 2009 at Fortis College where they worked together for 2 years. After several unfruitful attempts to get Nikole into a date, Jorge organized a skiing trip for the whole office but unbeknownst to Nikole, everyone canceled. Jorge and Nikole were the only persons in attendance. It was Nikole’s first time skiing so she was a little nervous and she fell.  Jorge offered to carry her down the slope and at that moment Nikole knew that he was the one. They started dating in early 2010.

Jorge proposed to Nikole on Christmas morning of 2012 in an intimate and romantic moment. He wrapped the ring box in a bigger box to throw her off. She unwrapped one box only to have to unwrap another lovely surprise.

For their wedding, Jorge and Nikole chose 2941 Restaurant because of the exquisite cuisine and services, and the ambiance of waterfalls reminded them of Costa Rica where they were going to honeymoon.
