Kimberly Anne Kozar And Nathan Alvan Albers Started Their Lives Together With A Spring Wedding On The Site Of Their Future Downtown Stuart Home
What they do: Kim, 37, is a makeup artist, licensed aesthetician and volunteer, and Nate, 42, is a co-owner of TentLogix, Disaster Management Group, SE Cooling & Power Systems and NAG Properties.
How they met: Kim was visiting a friend in Florida when she met Nate. She says they “immediately hit it off,” and they spent the rest of her trip together.
How they knew they’d found “the one”: Kim says it was love at first sight for both of them. “I knew we would always be together after the time we spent together on that first of many trips to visit him in Florida,” she says.
On the proposal: The couple was enjoying breakfast in their pool house one morning when Nate got on one knee with their three rottweilers at his side.
On selecting the site: Nate and Kim decided to get married where they will be building their new home in downtown Stuart. “We felt it would create some amazing memories there that will be a part of our experience living there for many years to come,” she says. Since Nate owns a tent and event rental company, the couple put up a 6,000-square-foot curved roof structure with carpeted wood floors, air conditioning and 13-foot glass walls to allow views of the water and landscape.
