We matched on a dating app and had our first date at DC's annual barbecue battle. It was there we both quickly learned that if you could fall for someone while sweating in the humidity of a DC summer and getting barbecue sauce all over you eating ribs, you just might have something special. Not long after, Kurt introduced Alyssa to a funny little show called The Office and Alyssa introduced Kurt to a giant dog named River, and the rest is history!
We spent a week trading DC's monuments and traffic for moose tracks and bear spray on a trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. During a sunrise hike along Yellowstone's Grand Canyon, Kurt found a sequestered spot overlooking a waterfall to propose, and Alyssa said yes! We are so grateful for all of our family and friends and we're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with you.
