Alicia Guzman & Nik Sadler
San Diego, CA
Location: The Prado at Balboa Park
Their story: Ever had a high school crush on your friend’s sibling? Alicia did. It wasn’t until four years after high school, however, that she actually met Nik, the real-life face from those “pictures of that cute older brother.” And it didn’t take much else for this serendipitous meeting to become more: For Nik, “something clicked” the moment they met. After a first date of drinking beer and watching Fourth of July fireworks on Alicia’s rooftop, the connection continued.
