Natalie and Brad

How We Met: I moved from Los Angeles to Dallas for a change. I really knew no one except family members in Texas, so my friends back at home suggested to download Tinder to meet people. My second date was with Brad. He asked me to drinks and I said no, but you can take me to dinner ;). When we met there was an instant attraction and connection.

We talked for hours and closed the restaurant down. Our second date he picked me up at my aunts house (where I was staying) took me to dinner and then after we walked the town square drinking hot chocolate, it was so sweet. That night we both knew this was it, what we had was so special we weren’t letting this go. The rest is history! We have been inseparable ever since :)

Bride and Groom's Engagement in my parents ranch in texas

How He Asked: It was the first time our parents were officially meeting at my parents ranch in Texas. We all had an amazing time talking, laughing, and exchanging stories. Brad was holding my parents dog and his leg kept twitching. He said let’s go take him potty outside. So he and I went outside towards the fountain and he stopped. He set the dog down and kept his left hand in his pocket. He said ” I love you Natalie. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”

He had tears in his eyes and I said YES! I looked to my left and my mom was filming the whole thing and I look right his parents, my dad, and grandpa all come out screaming. Everyone was in on it, it was the best day ever!
