After meeting on season 2 of “Love Is Blind,” Danielle Ruhl met and fell in love with Nick Thompson, accepting his marriage proposal without ever seeing what he looked like.
After a rough trial period, Danielle and Nick exchanged the “I Do” at the altar and the couple has been going strong ever since.

The same day, Danielle took to Instagram to share a few snaps of her adoring husband, revealing that they’ve been married for almost one year already!
