Nicole and Kareem were another APW couple with a remarkable love story. They met in medical school and it was not love at first sight. In their own words: "He was loud, arrogant and obnoxious." and "[She] was the gorgeous, quiet girl who rolled her eyes when I tried to talk to her." Throughout school, they were able to get to know each other and eventually became friends and then a couple. Astonishingly, since graduating, they have been in a continuous long distance relationship. They define how opposites attract!
On a fantastically warm spring day, they were married at the Los Altos History Museum, a hidden gem of a venue behind the public library. This simply chic day was punctuated by mind blowing DIY details. Nicole's dress was designed and sewn by her brother; a curtain of 1,000 paper cranes, hand folded by the bride, was the backdrop to their vows; and a hand-drawn caricature served as their guestbook. To end the night, oreos and shots of milk fueled guests as they burned up the dance floor.
Here's to the beginning of their new life, together!
