Kaitlyn and Tyler met through an app on their phones called Bumble. It's funny though because they were at the same church all along!
Tell us about the proposal!
I (Tyler) sent Kaitlyn on an all-day scavenger hunt to places across Dallas that had played a role in the building of our relationship. At each station, Kaitlyn would receive the next card from one of her best friends detailing what, why and where to next. Finally, she came to White Rock Lake at sunset where she found me waiting next to a candlelit table of our memories and flowers (Kaitlyn's favorite). There, I dropped to one knee and asked her to marry me. Naturally, she said yes!
Kaitlyn's ring is a 14-karat white gold band that was custom built with pave diamonds that reach halfway around the band. The center stone is a circular stone of almost 1 karat with a square diamond halo. Two of the diamonds in the engagement ring are from her mother's personal collection. The wedding band is a matching 14-karat white gold band of pave diamonds matching those on the engagement ring.
Tell us about your attire choices for your engagement session.
We chose clothes that we thought displayed the naturalness of our relationship. We are upbeat, casual people who don't take ourselves too seriously.
