Nick & Cassie – A New Zealand/California Love Story

A true trans-continental love affair, Nick’s first contact with Cassie’s family came during the summer of 2004 when he was a camp counselor with Cassie’s brother in upstate New York, where they became fast friends.

After summer, Nick took a cross-country trip, planning to end up near Chico, CA, to visit some family friends. Fate stepped in, as Cassie was attending Chico State at the time, and her brother asked if she would show Nick around town while he was there.

What was planned as nothing more than a guided tour quickly became a friendship and then a romance. After three weeks together Nick’s visit to the US came to an end, whereupon he returned to New Zealand.

Nick & Cassie stayed in touch. Both just 18 and fully occupied with school on two different continents, they did not see each other again until 2012 when Nick returned to the US to attend a wedding in Texas. He made a stop in LA, and met up again with Cassie. The attraction was still there. Nick cut short his visit to Texas to spend a few more days with Cassie in Newport Beach before flying back to New Zealand.

Upon returning to New Zealand, Nick invited Cassie to join his family for the 2012 holidays there. She next traveled to New Zealand in the summer of 2013, and again in the summer of 2014. In December 2014, Nick traveled to Newport Beach to spend the holidays with Cassie’s family.

When Cassie returned to New Zealand in February of 2015, Nick proposed and the rest is history! We’re so glad Nick and Cassie found the Harborside and we’re honored to be a part of their unique love story.

An E-Harmony Romance, Chris & Laura

CAKE:  Nothing Bundt Cakes

COORDINATION:  Lauren Pittman @ Prince Events

DJ:  Andy Mason

Chris & Laura’s one-of-a-kind story about Harborside’s E-Harmony Bride & Groom, as told by Jeannie Assismos, VP Content E-Harmony:

“When actress Laura Carlson auditioned for a role in an eHarmony commercial, she had absolutely no idea how much this opportunity would change her life.
As she sat on the set with eHarmony CEO and founder Dr. Neil Clark Warren, the two talked about life — including her lack of a love life. The fellow Iowan natives really bonded, and Dr. Warren urged her to give eHarmony a trial run.

A year and a half later, Dr. Warren received an email from Laura:
As you know last year, after we shot our commercial, you were so gracious to give me a free membership to your site. Even though I was skeptical I thought, ‘Ah what the heck, I’ll give it a shot, and I’m not out any money! You even prophesized that day that I would meet my husband on your site! Well, I just wanted to let you know that after almost a year and a half of dating a wonderful gentleman, Chris, who I met on eHarmony, he proposed to me on Oct 6th.
Dr. Warren and I had lunch with the happy couple last week, who are obviously very grateful, very compatible, and very in love.”
