America’s Sweethearts

June 27, 2015 // Nikki + Trent 

Nikki Bohne and Trent Lloyd’s storybook romance makes even the fanciest fairy tales seem boring. After growing up towns apart (her in Highland, him in Draper), they finally found each other in Omaha, Neb. Trent moved there for work in 2014, and Nikki stopped through that May during her stint as the Glinda understudy in Broadway’s “Wicked.” A mutual friend suggested the two meet for lunch. Three weeks and dozens of dates later, they began their eventual cross-country courtship. “It was instantly easy,” Nikki says. “That year we traveled 96,000 miles to be together and clocked 816 hours on FaceTime.” On a snowy Saturday in NYC, their virtual connections led to a virtually perfect proposal. Nikki got off the subway, and her friend greeted her with an empty basket, a video camera and a Tiffany and Co. bag that held a timepiece necklace with a note saying, “This is for time …” As she walked down Broadway, random New Yorkers began putting white roses in her basket. She finally saw Trent in Central Park, standing on a candlelit staircase, waiting with a dozen more white roses (there were ultimately 200 total) and a ring for eternity. “I said ‘yes!’ before he was even able to finish the word ‘marry,’” she says. The engaging couple planned their Thanksgiving Point wedding from afar, and then traveled Europe for a month-long pre-honeymoon (and Paris bridals, obviously). “It was a big priority to us that our wedding be fun,” Nikki says. “In the end, it was all so completely perfect. But mostly, it was ours.”

GET THE PICTURE When it came to their rose-themed wedding day, Nikki and Trent made sure to stop and smell those roses — literally and figuratively. The morning-of, Nikki and her friends had a “brunch and beautify” party at The Little America, while Trent went golfing with his best guys. Those calm beginnings started the day off right and, well, rosey. For the reception, details were crucial to Nikki. There was an incredible floral photo booth wall. There was a map of their continental courtship. There were fun facts about the couple given to guests as golf carts transported them to the rose garden. And there was Nikki’s dog, Olive, looking fancy. The night was truly one big party — and even ended with a conga line to “Uptown Funk.”
