Natasha and Seth Nicholson are an online dating success story. The couple met on Tinder in 2014 and became friends. Three years later, Natasha was sick one night, and Seth brought her chili, medicine, and Sprite. They have been together ever since.
Boonville, Indiana, native Seth and Newburgh, Indiana, native Natasha dated four years before getting engaged in a surprise proposal at Pepper’s Ridge Winery in Rockport, Indiana. Seth got Natasha’s mom, best friends, and close family members in on the secret, and they prepped her with a manicure and her favorite flowers. Seth popped the question with a wine glass emblazoned with the words, “Natasha will you marry me!” Loved ones showed up at dinner, which turned into a surpise engagement party.
While planning their wedding, the pair enjoyed cake tasting, wedding showers, and dress fittings. They were wed on Oct. 7, 2023, during the West Side Nut Club’s Fall Festival so out-of-town guests had an added special event to visit.
The ceremony and reception were held at Evansville Country Club, with the ceremony occurring on the first tee of the golf course. The father of Seth’s best friend officiated, and the readers were family members.
“The view was beyond beautiful and actually another reason why we chose ECC,” Natasha says. “We wanted it to be very intimate and include people who have been in our lives for years.”
Natasha and Seth wanted the reception in the ECC ballroom to be one big party. This vision was accomplished with glow sticks, marquee letters, and a photo booth. It also featured a cigar bar with Seth’s personal collection, a must-have at any celebration for the Nicholson boys.
Seeing guests “let loose and enjoy themselves” at the reception, Natasha says, was a highlight of the evening for the couple.
