In 2014, Taylor and Clayton’s love story unfolded in the unlikeliest of places — the gym. Mutual friends paved the way for conversation that sparked a connection. After an injury, Taylor stopped going to the gym, and the couple didn’t cross paths until two years later when Taylor serendipitously ran into Clayton at a local country club. With his fondness for two-stepping, Clayton invited Taylor to dance, igniting a spark that would keep them dancing together ever since. Two weeks later, Clayton mustered the courage to ask Taylor to be his girlfriend while dancing. Just two months later, while sharing another dance, Clayton revealed his feelings and told her he loved her, marking the pivotal moments in their love story.
After three and a half years of long-distance dating, Kaleb proposed to Gilda in her very favorite place: sunny Carmel, CA. When it came time to propose, Kaleb devised a plan to surprise his college sweetheart with a beach picnic. Kaleb says, “The day of the proposal, we went on a hike at sea lion point, then came home to rest, and I was anything but restful. Gilda had no idea about my nerves because she took a nice relaxing nap. Under false pretenses of going to take pictures and walk on the beach, we headed down and walked up on the picnic, which she was questioning if it was for us. I got down on one knee and proposed, both of us with tear-filled eyes.”
