Hand in hand, they talked towards the beautiful Texas Capitol building. They took a few selfies in front of the building. They talked and kissed quietly. But what Erica didn’t realize was that her life was about to change. Unbeknownst to her, Christopher had picked out a gorgeous ring months earlier during SXSW and it was burning a hole in his pocket. He called her family ahead of time and asked that they fly in from Pennsylvania. Friends and family were waiting in anticipation at the Red Room downtown, sipping glasses of pre-celebratory red wine and waiting for the happy couple to burst in with the news.

      On the Capitol grounds, Christopher pulled the ring out of his back pocket and got down on one knee.

      Erica said yes.
