Our love story began in Arizona, in 2017. Alexis had just moved to Arizona, where Ryan had also moved to 6 months prior.
Little did both know, that they had just traveled 1,700 miles to meet the love of their life, who was originally from the same home town! The two were introduced via social media by a mutual friend (Thanks Matt Curless!) and decided to meet for a drink at Second Story Bar in Oldtown Scottsdale. Some flirtatious banter was exchanged back and forth over an Old Fashioned and a glass of bourbon. After, Ryan was smitten and immediately invited Alexis to a couples party. She denied him (but only for the moment) as she ended up inviting him just weeks later to a work party and the rest was history.
3 years worth of memories later and we’ve taken many trips together, including Mexico, Aruba and the Bahamas. We adopted a fur baby named Elote and recently purchased our dream home in Arcadia, Arizona. The weekend of the 4th of July, Ryan popped the question in the backyard of our new house, where we hope to start our family. We can’t wait for this exciting new chapter to begin!
