Nicole and Dale met through mutual friends at a local sports bar in the Valley, where they danced the night away in true Alaska fashion in their Xtratufs. On their big day, they invited over a hundred guests to join them in their Xtratufs, which was partly fashion and a nod to their first night together as much as function, since the ceremony was on the bank of the Susitna River in Talkeetna. They even gave their guests Xtratuf shot glasses. During the ceremony, a local musician played on a 140-year-old piano brought down to the beach just for the occasion. The couple exchanged the vows they wrote for each other, leaving the audience in laughter as Dale told Nicole, “You put up with me, and I like that.”
