Meet The Kisses

Jessica and Nicholas Kiss met and started dating in 2011. They moved to Charleston together in 2013, and later bought their quaint home in Mount Pleasant. In May 2015 Nick asked Jessica to marry him in a romantic proposal on a boat overlooking the Ravenel Bridge. After a few unforeseeable hiccups (*cough* Hurricane Matthew), they were married on December 10, 2016 at a stunning waterfront Charleston wedding surrounded by their loved ones. Nicholas and Jessica are self-proclaimed foodies, movie lovers, and avid sports fans who love being outdoors and spending time with their dogs. 

Jessica brings to Verità nearly a decade of experience in the bridal industry as a store manager, buyer, and stylist. Nicholas comes from a business background and has worked in the hospitality industry for 10+ years. Together, they bring a ton of passion and eagerness to make other’s dreams come true!
