Occupation: Kevin is Delivery Supervisor for Southern Glazers Wine and Spirits, Erika is a surgical scrub tech on a labor and delivery unit.
How we met: The first day of school freshman year of high school, Kevin asked Erika for a piece of gum, which she made sure to always have thereafter. They dated on and off during HS and after graduation went their separate ways. 23 years later Erika got a Facebook friend request from him and they politely commented on each other’s posts for a few months then decided to meet up for a lunch date. It lasted 6 hours and they have seen each other every day since.
Hometowns: Spokane born and raised for both of them.
First real date: They were talking on the phone and Erika mentioned that it would be a nice night for a fire pit and drinks, but she didn’t have either. A few hours later Kevin texted and asked for her address. He showed up with a fire pit (he had to go to 3 stores) and some beer. They stayed out in Erika’s yard by the fire pit till 5 a.m, when Kevin had to leave and go to work.
Proposal Story: We were in Cabo, and had planned a day trip to Lovers Beach. What Kevin didn’t know was that the water taxi could not land the boat due to rough water. When the boat trip ended, Kevin suggested we walk up to Cabo Wabo and see if Sammy Hagar was in the bar (he was supposed to be in town) and get some lunch. He asked the waitress if she would take our picture up on stage and he all of a sudden dropped to one knee and pulled out a ring. Both the waitress and I were totally shocked, she kept asking if that was real. Kevin was upset that it didn’t go down the way he had planned but I love it, it’s totally us.
Day in Three Words: Perfectly imperfect and just fun. Our friends and coworkers are still saying it was the best wedding they have been to.
