Tell us how you first met? Who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details.

“We first met when I was in town on a stop over from touring with Dallas Children’s Theatre. Eric and I connected on Tinder, and in trying to blow him off and avoid a “date” I invited him to come out dancing with my tour mates and me. We clicked immediately! We danced all night, and parted ways as the bar closed. He asked the next day if he could call me, and after that we talked every day until we saw each other again 2 months later when he came to visit me in Dallas.”

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?, etc.

Bailey - “I first knew he was the one when I came to visit Minnesota again for the first time since we’d met. He had planned a 4th of July fireworks cruise for us. We were standing on the boat and chatting and I remember him saying, “you should just stay here”. One week later we were planning my move in August.”

Eric - “I knew she was the one when we were driving to the airport at the end of her visit to MN. We were holding hands as we approached her terminal and we started joking about turning around and her staying. There was definitely a moment when we both realized we weren’t joking. We never went through with it, but that’s when I knew.”

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.

Bailey - “Eric makes me belly laugh, every single day! He’s seriously so silly!”

Eric - ”Her consideration for others. She’s the yin to my yang.”

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

Bailey - “Eric does the most ridiculous dances around our apartment. I think if anyone ever saw them but me, he’d probably die of embarrassment, but they crack me up.”

Eric - “Bailey sings musical theater numbers at full blast while attempting to act out the scene with her hands as she drives. Once I start giggling the volume and intensity increases. “

Besides getting married - whats the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?

“We’re so excited to be surrounded by all of the people we love on the best day of our lives! We kept our guest list small and intimate. Our nearest and dearest people will be by our side celebrating with us, and you can’t beat that. Also, can we say the food?”

Explain why you made the decision to work with Lora & Isaac?

“Lora & Isaac have gone above and beyond for us since we first inquired about having them photograph our wedding. They’re so warm, and friendly. They have made us feel like so much more than just “clients”. “
