Clear Cut Couples: Taylor and Bryan

Taylor went to college with Bryan's sister (University of Rhode Island), and they had met a few times in brief interactions, but really first spent time together during Memorial Day Weekend in Newport, Rhode Island at the start of Summer 2019! Bryan asked Taylor to go on a moped ride and took her along Ocean Drive in Newport and that was really the start of it all!

During that same Memorial Day Weekend Bryan asked Taylor on a date (at the time he was living in Newport, and she was living in Boston). The next week he drove up to Boston and took her to a taqueria and oyster bar in a local neighborhood. A few frozen espresso martinis were definitely enjoyed together! In less than a month from their first date, they knew they wanted to be in a relationship.

They have been together for 4.5 years since then!

There have been so many special moments to highlight over the course of their relationship, but the real blessing overall has been the sense of community that they have developed. Their friends have blended so seamlessly together, and it's been so special to watch their community double in size over the years! They are so grateful for the growth that they experienced as a couple, but also for the friends and family who have loyally supported them along the way!

Bryan proposed on December 2, 2023, at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park! Taylor has always loved NYC at Christmas time, so Bryan proctored a plan that included a horse-drawn carriage ride in Central Park with a stop at the fountain since neither of them had been before. It was truly a Hallmark moment they will never forget.

Taylor had some suspicions leading up to the proposal, but she never imagined he would propose in NYC! She was delightfully surprised and absolutely adores the ring and the thought and care Bryan put into making it a perfect day.

As for their wedding, they love the fall season and are aiming for Fall of 2025. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
