Lexi Pappas and Nick Tsagalakis first met through mutual friends in 2019 in California. They felt a connection, especially as they both come from “big fat Greek families.” It turns out their relatives are close friends, and one of Lexi’s aunts baptized Nick’s uncle. Lexi and Nick even share the same birthday. A year later, their paths crossed, spurring a year-long romance that spanned Bellaire, Seattle, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Missoula, Montana, as the two were working remotely. Nick grew up in Seattle and currently lives in Salt Lake City. He proposed at the top of Snowbird Mountain. The moment was captured by Amanda Taylor, Lexi’s friend from Bellaire, who was hiding nearby. Lexi’s parents, Gus and Pamela Pappas, Nick’s parents, Father Tom Tsagalakis and Presvytera Pat Tsagalakis, friends Lizzie Bettis and Maggie Talley, and sister Elena Pappas celebrated with a fun weekend in Utah together.
