Match Success: Deanna & Eric

It was six years in the making for this love story.

After meeting on Match, Deanna and Eric’s first date was on Valentine’s Day (2011), and it was no typical first date either. Each of them had children, so their kids tagged along, making their first dinner together a true family affair!

The two hit it off right away and naturally eased into a relationship. After two years of dating, Eric proposed to Deanna at the finish line of the Dallas Hot Chocolate Run (which they had both run in that day).

Four years of engagement later, Deanna was tired of the who/what/where/when of wedding planning and decided to take matters into her own hands.

First, she re-proposed to Eric the exact same way he proposed to her: at the finish line of the Dallas Hot Chocolate Run! Nine days later, Deanna whisked herself and Eric away to Vegas to get married on Valentine’s Day, making it exactly six years to the day of their very first dinner date.

Congratulations, Deanna and Eric! We wish you all the happiness in the world.
