Sometimes the path from meeting to marriage isn’t direct, but Tyler Rowley knew from the moment he laid eyes on Nichole Soucy that she was the one. “Nichole and I met in 2005 at a bar while we were both in college,” says Tyler. “I was able to get Nichole to give me her phone number, but she must have been unimpressed because she ignored both my text messages and Facebook messages in the coming weeks.”
The couple met again after graduating from college in September 2008. Tyler spotted Nichole across the room and knew he had to “accidentally” bump into her. The coincidental meeting led to dinner, more dates and then dating. After three years of being together, Tyler asked Nichole to marry him after Mass at the Providence church they attend every Sunday. For this spiritual couple, it was a very important moment, and their strong faith was evident throughout their wedding – in the invitations, engagement photos, speeches, blessing at the reception and rosary on Nichole’s bouquet, with flowers by Golden Gate Studios.
Six months after the engagement, the couple celebrated their marriage at Kirkbrae Country Club in Lincoln, Rhode Island. “Our wedding was unique in that it glorified God and not ourselves,” says Nichole. “The most common compliment we received from our guests was about the beauty of the Mass.” For Nichole and Tyler, all of their prayers were answered when they met each other and solidified the sacrament of marriage in front of their family and friends.
