Nikkina Miller & Malcolm McKnight

Venue: Flint Hill Baptist Church in Rock Hill, SC

Honeymoon: Freeport, Bahamas

Home: Rock Hill, SC

• Nikkina is a teacher at Andrew Jackson High School. Malcolm works in telecommunications at AT&T. Although Nikinna and Malcolm attended the same college, they didn’t start a relationship until years later. When Malcolm saw Nikkina again he jokingly said: “I would marry you but I gotta ask my mama first.” Both laughed and a beautiful friendship ensued. When Malcolm was truly ready to pop the question, he set it up so Nikkina believed it was practice for the real proposal. While in the the garden where the sweethearts had their first daytime date, Nikkina was caught off guard when the hypothetical became reality.

He knew he was in love when…

I allowed her to put her feet on me. I hate feet…but it’s just something about her and because I know she loves to cuddle and feet are usually in the mix, I knew “feet” would have to be apart of loving the entire person she was.

She knew she was in love when…

He had to have ACL surgery right after I had a major surgery and I had my family drive me to where he was even though I was still in pain and on bedrest. We drove an hour to where he was and I could only stay for 30 minutes.

In 10 years we will be…

Still sharing the love we have today mixed with a couple of children to add on to the fun and living out our dreams.

Before the groom got married he wishes someone had told him…

To eat what she cooks regardless of if it’s something you like or not. It will save you in the long run (she really can cook).

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

That ESPN would become a station you will learn to watch regardless of your love for sports or not (I actually will sit and watch ESPN alone now…scary).

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Try new foods or snacks. It’s just one of the things that we can say we did or tried first together.

Our nicknames for each other are…

Chuck and Rosie because we are always eating something!!

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

At home. There we don’t have to worry about who’s watching or listening, we can just be us.

Our song is…

“Here I Stand” by Usher.

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner and a walk in the park. When we first started dating we learned that we both loved being outside. We had several day dates that resulted in us heading to the park, we got engaged in the first park where we met each other. It’s just “our place.”
