Nicole Roth and Matthew Mosteiro met in 2004 through Matt’s younger sister, Sara, after moving to Jacksonville to attend the University of North Florida. The two remained friends for five years before deciding—somewhat on a whim—to start dating and making their relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend official in 2009. Six wonderful years later, in April 2015, the couple took a long-awaited trip to New York to see the Yankees play the Mets in a Subway Series game. Nicole is a huge Yankees fan and Matt was born and raised a Mets supporter. On the day of the game, the couple took a walk through Central Park and on the way out of the stadium, Matt popped the question. “April 24 will always hold a special place in our hearts,” Nicole says.
Nicole crafted the entire guest book. “We did a ‘Message in a Bottle’ theme,” she says. “Guests could write us a note and stick it in a bottle for us to open on our 1st, 5th, 10th, and 25th wedding anniversaries.” • Matt didn’t have many wedding requests. He did say, however, that he wanted to wear a grey suit and to hear “Sweet Caroline” played at the reception.
Matt and Nicole made donations to the American Cancer Society and the Alzheimer’s Association on behalf of their wedding guests instead of offering party favors. “We felt the best gift to give was the gift of helping others,” Nicole says. • While running through a shower of sparklers to leave, someone accidentally burned Nicole’s arm. “Normally I would be upset. But I kind of like the idea of having the scar as a memento,” she says.
