Erin and Alex both attended Bloomsburg University, but didn’t meet until their senior year in 2010.
Just about four years from their meeting, Erin and Alex prepared to host a Super Bowl party for their friends and family, and for Erin’s and Alex’s parents to finally meet. Erin was so focused on organizing the party that she had no idea what was to come. But then, as Alex began to thank everybody for coming before the game even started, it hit her. Alex shared the story about how he and Erin met, then got down on one knee and asked Erin to marry him. Accompanying the ring were two jerseys of the two teams that were playing in the game – one said “marry me” and the other said “yes,” which, of course, was Erin’s response.
Erin and Alex started planning their wedding right after getting engaged. They were very excited to plan a fun-filled wedding! They already had many vendors in mind that they wanted to use for the wedding, so they booked those right away. One vendor was The Grand Hotel of Cape May, where Erin and Alex held their reception. They chose The Grand Hotel due to its mini-destination feeling.
Erin and Alex were married on June 13, 2015 on the beach adjacent to The Grand Hotel. Afterwards, guests went into The Grand Hotel to celebrate the happy couple. The Grand’s ballroom had a perfect view of the beach from every window, and guests were able to enjoy cocktail hour outside while overlooking the beach. It was just what Erin and Alex wanted.
Erin’s most memorable moment from her special day was her and Alex’s first look. Erin says, “I will never forget the look in his eyes when he saw me. It was our moment that we had together.”
Erin would like to thank Jessica Haddy of Haddy Music based in Southern California and Mike Gorman for playing during the ceremony, and her brother, Jim Lynch, for officiating the ceremony.
Erin and Alex are now happily enjoying married life!
