Before the celebration of their love story at The Astorian, it first started when Roxanne and Nick met at a backyard party in their beloved college town, Louisville, while they sat on top of a garage with one of their mutual friends. After getting to know one another, they exchanged numbers, and Roxanne called herself “Party Time Volleyball” on Nick’s phone, which, to this day, he hasn’t updated.
As time went on, the two realized they had a lot of the same classes, and they kept running into one another by chance. A few years after college, Roxanne was traveling to Louisville for volleyball and Nick had just gotten back from his first pro season in the MLB for the Texas Rangers. They ran into each other again and spent the evening talking nonstop on an outdoor heated patio under the trees when Nick finally asked her on a date.
