Erin and Bryce

How We Met

Bryce and I met on Hinge in December of 2019. It’s funny because we’re the type of people that would never typically participate in online dating. The moment I was ready to call it quicks with all dating apps and dating in general, Bryce’s message came strolling through. Besides being so handsome and a Christian man, he was a perfect gentleman and even asked me ever-so-politely if he could have my number (which is a rarity these days). The rest is history!

How They Asked

March 26th was my 24th birthday and because we couldn’t celebrate last year due to COVID, Bryce was planning on making this birthday super special. He had been telling me for months that we were going to do a photoshoot and that I would be getting three big surprises. Bryce would hint at getting a puppy for the longest time, that I thought I cracked the code of the surprise. I truly thought I would have to act surprised when my birthday came around! On the day of my birthday, Bryce blindfolded me because he didn’t want me to see his outfit for the “photoshoot” and my “gifts” when we got there (to our favorite summer place, the Marina). He told me when the music started to play, to take my blindfold off to reveal the birthday gifts. Once I did, I saw my family and closest friends lined up and at the end of the gazebo was Bryce standing there with a “Marry Me” sign. While there was no puppy, I got the biggest surprise and best birthday of my life – no acting! I can’t wait to marry my best friend and spend the rest of forever with him.

Special Thanks
