Reportedly, the lovers met in 1993 at East Side Mario’s restaurant in Toronto as per Nolden in an interview with TRNTO.com, published in March 2020. But didn’t specify the exact year of their meeting. At that time, the Canadian actress worked as a waitress, where Chris came with mates from the baseball team.

Then following four months, her now-husband Szarka approached Michelle for a date and went to watch Jurassic Park at the cinemas at Market Square. While they were into 6 months of a relationship, the actress got a ‘six-month contract entertaining on a cruise ship’.

Engagement Surprise Spoiled

According to Chris Szarka, he proposed to the Northern Rescue actress while at a family gathering. He stated with TRNTO.com that he planned to take Nolden to a midnight paddleboat ride and propose; he would signal the family members ashore by flashlight for fireworks.

However, it didn’t go as planned as Chris had to discreetly flash the Jet Ski coming towards them, which mistakenly family members took as a signal. And all surprise went off which he explains as a ‘epic night’. But in the end, the duo is happy together which is all that matters.
