We first “liked” each other on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel in early 2016, going on our first date in March at Sava’s Restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We both knew right away that this was going to be something special.
After meeting on a dating app, going on our first date in Michigan, and spending our first year dating in Ohio, Robert was offered a new position with his company, and together we moved to Denver, Colorado.
When Erin’s sister Lauren and brother-in-law Sean were in town visiting in July of 2018, we woke up extra early, piled into our car for a 2 hour drive to hike at Rocky Mountain National Park. When we arrived at the Bear Lake trailhead, we stopped to take in the views by the alpine lake before starting the 4 mile trek.
After posing for a few pictures together, Erin started to walk away from Robert as he got down on one knee and called to her, “Wait! Come back!” Suddenly realizing what was going on, Robert asked, “Will you marry me?” and Erin replied, “Yes!” through happy tears, all caught on camera by our hiking partners and Robert’s proposal planning partners-in-crime.
We cannot wait to start the next chapter of our life together and celebrate this special time surrounded by family and friends.
