As working professionals, both Alexa and Dustin struggled to find time to go out and meet new people. They each decided to give Bumble a try and see if it led to anything. When they first matched on the dating app, Alexa thought Dustin looked “too good to be true,” but after he extended their match so it wouldn’t expire, Alexa knew she had to see what he was all about. They began texting and shortly after, they met at Mudhouse and Alexa says, “The rest is history.” Each year, they still go back to the same spot at Mudhouse to celebrate the anniversary of their first date.
Dustin decided to surprise Alexa with a proposal during what she thought were just family photos that fall. Dustin had prearranged the surprise with the photographer, Alexa’s parents and her son. The moment didn’t seem right until the very end of the photos when Dustin had been on one knee for a previous pose, and he pulled the ring out of his pocket and said, “Can you hold this for me?”
