Influencer Nikki Sharp planned her gorgeous destination wedding in Capri before she even got engaged
Nikki Sharp, author, podcast host and model, is used to getting DMs thanks to her 455,000 instagram followers.
So she wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary when she checked her Instagram posts during a trip with her girlfriends to Saint Lucia in November 2020. But a message from Kummert, a hedge fund manager and founder of Capital of Calvionchanged everything.
“It was one of those times where I think everyone understands where I was, ‘I really don’t want to date anyone. I’m quitting apps,'” Sharp told Insider. “‘I want to focus on me. I love my life. I love my friends.’ And of course, that’s when he showed up.”
Sharp, 35, and Kummert, 37, started communicating and they quickly realized how much they had in common. Sharp was living in Miami at the time while Kummert was based in New York, so their relationship continued virtually.
“We would just have these deliciously long, long conversations,” Sharp told Insider of the social media posts. “We hadn’t had a phone call yet. I didn’t even know what his voice sounded like.”
Three weeks later, they had a two-hour phone meeting and their connection just kept growing.
“It was so good for me because I’m an author, I’ve been on TV and I’m a former model. I know people look at me based on my followers and my looks. So it was really nice to have someone meet for me,” she said of their phone calls.
