Nicholas Petersen and Margeaux Epner

With their families secretly watching from inside, Margeaux Epner (pictured, right) accepted Nicholas Petersen’s (left) marriage proposal in her parents’ backyard. The happy couple then celebrated with a family dinner and an outdoor champagne toast with a few friends. Margeaux and Nick both attended Rice University, but didn’t cross paths while they were undergrads. After they graduated, the pair met at a mutual friend’s birthday party. Nick is a second-year MBA candidate at The Wharton School, and Margeaux is a fourth-year medical student at McGovern Medical School, applying for residency in anesthesiology. They plan to move wherever Margeaux’s residency match takes them, and will marry in February 2022.
