It must have been the luck of the Irish for Jaimi and Nickolay in March of 2010. Jaimi had agreed to tag along with one of her volleyball friends from Illinois Institute of Technology, Allison, for the festivities of St. Patrick’s Day 2010 in Chicago. The first stop of the night was to meet up with some of Allison’s friends from the Illinois Institute of Technology for one or two drinks then meet up with other volleyball girls from IIT. Upon arrival, who should be sitting there with the guys – Nickolay. After introductions, the ensuing conversation over a couple drinks had Allison and one of the guys seeing the sparks between Nickolay and Jaimi – even if they could not quite see them themselves. So, the plotting began for the evening. As Allison and Jaimi hopped into a cab heading for their next destination, Allison asked ever so not subtly, “What do you think of Nick?”. After the girls had left, Nickolay’s friends were in almost constant contact with Allison to see where they were and to somehow get Nickolay and Jaimi in the same place again before the night was over. The efforts of Nickolay and Jaimi’s friends did not go to waste.Phone numbers were exchanged, dates were gone on, and the good times never seemed to stop.
Right before Jaimi’s parents arrived in Chicago for Christmas 2011, Nick and Jaimi were getting ready for a nice, just because, dinner out. As Jaimi walked into her apartment’s kitchen to pull on her jacket she noticed there was a pocket sized notebook sitting on top of her jacket. She picked it up and began to flip through the pages and a cartoon started to play out in the notebook. A little boy and a little girl began to hold hands, the little girl asked why the boy was so smiley, the little boy said that he was so happy, that he loved the girl, and he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. As Jaimi finished flipping through the book, she found Nickolay next to her and down on one knee with a ring and a huge smile on his face.With hands shaking and happy tears, Jaimi said yes to Nickolay.
Jaimi is the best sister I could have ever asked for.
Growing up she has been my best friend; from those moments when I had to help her with a fashion crisis to those where she had to reach the top shelf for me, we have shared the best of times.
When Jaimi and Nick started dating, I knew I had gained another great friend. Nick has been the brother that I never knew I needed. From the beginning of their relationship I knew that they were going to be together forever. Just spending time with the two of them could instantly turn anyone's mood into a good one. I'm so excited for their marriage and for Nick to join the family!
I’ve had the pleasure of growing close to Jaimi over the years. J and I started spending time together on the IIT Volleyball Team. We were pepper partners and could run a pretty sweet lefty slide (though J should get all the credit). Our friendship continues to grow: taking out competitors one game at a time on the beach, sharing yogic experiences, dangerous shopping sprees, and cutting up too-many-to-count dance floors. As for Jaimi and Nick – lets start from the very beginning. And I mean the very beginning. I watched Nicks eyes light up the moment Jaimi walked into the bar dressed in all green and a funky hat that momentous St. Patty’s Day. A few coca-colas later (and a few spilled to be more specific), it was all history. I would describe their relationship as one of the most kind and caring. I look forward to watching them fall even more in love in the years to come!
Hi. My name is Anna. I am a lucky sister of Prince Charming. And as all members of Schwarz family I suffer from severe modesty, confidence, brightness, purposefulness and all related untreatable conditions. All those conditions are highly contagious and extremely transmittable. My friends and friends of Prince Charming can confirm that as they all enjoy being infected. As a sincere, genuine and honest person (did I mentions that too?!) I have to warn Jaimi what she is signing for. Be aware, once you are a member of the family we are going to extend our love on you unconditionally and forever. Marrying Prince Charming is a privilege of voluntarily agreeing to a life sentence of love, happiness, respect, understanding, support and security.
I am blessed with my two amazing brothers. I am lucky to have a sister-in-law Melissa, and now I can’t wait to become even happier person than I am and have another sister-in-law Jaimi!
Jaimi and Nick, wish you many years of happiness!
I am originally from Alaska, studied Architecture at IIT, Urban Design in Newcastle, England, and am now back in Alaska working at an Architecture firm. I met Jaimi during a volleyball recruiting/scholarship interview weekend at IIT. We immediately became friends and made plans to room together for our freshman year. From day one of rooming we were like two peas in a pod, right down to the same color scheme for our bedding! We have travelled the world together from road trips to Colorado to European vacations and somehow have never once had a fight. I am so excited to be able to participate in sending Jaimi off for the next step in her life and hope to get to know Nick better along the way!
Jaimi and I first met in college when we both joined the ASA sorority. It was not long after that we discovered we had similar majors, Jaimi Architectural and myself Civil Engineering. She taught me many class survival tasks like sudoku or knitting (....her not me). After college Jaimi and I moved in together, I will never forget the nights staying up late just because we could or supporting each other through the difficult times of working full time for the first time in our life. During this time Jaimi "happened" to meet a boy one St. Patrick's day. When I finally met Nick I soon realized why Jaimi was so giddy. They are so happy and I couldn't be more excited to see them start their life together!
I guess you could say I’m the “third sister”. Jaimi, Abby, and I have known each other since before we were born-- our moms are best friends! Not coincidentally, we are also neighbors. I can honestly say I love Jaimi like she is my own blood. There are so many memories I have with Jaimi—and I look forward to creating more memories with Jaimi AND Nick!
Although I do not know Nick as well as everyone else may (you two need to visit Kansas more often!!!), I believe I know why they make a great couple. There is obviously a large amount of love, respect, friendship, and caring between these two.
Be warned Nick, as the oldest of the ‘three sisters’, I am the protector and expect you to treat Jaimi like the amazing woman she is OR ELSE! ;-) Seriously though, I am very excited to see what life has in store for the two of you… like maybe a move back to Kansas?!?! :-) Welcome to the “family” Nickolay!
Stephanie is currently a gift sales representative based in Little Rock. She has known Jaimi since middle school in the Andover school district. Strangely enough, Jaimi and Stephanie became closer after they went their separate ways to go to college. Stephanie has come up to visit Jaimi in Chicago several times and on a visit in November 2010, she FINALLY met Nick- the guy Jaimi had been going on and on about for several months. Stephanie knew that Jaimi and Nick were perfect for each other the moment she saw them together, and she couldn’t be happier for them both.
