Our story began back in 2015, while both of us were attending college at The University of Central Florida (Go Knights!), and dabbling in the online dating world. We met through a dating website called OKCupid, so it’s fair to say that Cupid’s arrow really struck hard when we realized what a great match we were together!
From our first date at Cooper's Hawk Winery, our connection was instantaneous. As we started discovering all of our similarities and cultivating our relationship, it was easy to fall in love with one another. After our spontaneous third date in Miami, FL the rest of our story seamlessly fell into place. From embarking on new careers, moving across the country and back, and traveling around the world together, our journey is one we want to continue for the rest of our lives. We’ve been lucky enough to travel to 8 different countries and too many cities to count. We truly have enough memories to last us a lifetime, but we can’t wait to continue making more!
Our engagement happened at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, where Shaun proposed on our four-year anniversary, March 20th, 2019. The mini getaway to Eastern Pennsylvania turned into the best "aprés ski" surprise. We had plans to dine at the resort that evening and Shaun had suggested to grab a drink at the bar beforehand. Meanwhile, Shaun’s best friend Michael (and now Best Man) had flown in from Oklahoma to hide and photograph the special moment on Shaun’s behalf.
A Magical Moment
While walking across the resort property we ventured outside to a balcony overlooking the mountain, where little twinkle lights were set up and Shaun was slowly getting down on one knee. The proposal was a truly magical moment and a memory we will cherish forever.
