We met up with Dallas and Taylor at Baker Beach in San Francisco for their engagement session. At times, people say that they’re on “the same wavelength” as another individual. Before we met up with these two, we were debating on props to bring along for the photo shoot. Champagne came to mind as something that Dallas and Taylor could enjoy together. Little did we know, Taylor had also brought champagne with them to enjoy. We were so pleasantly surprised; it was meant to be. We had such a blast getting to know Dallas and Taylor during our time together; they are such genuine people! We wanted to share their story with you all, so we had them fill out a Q&A.
How did you two meet?
We met through a mutual friend in Nashville. Dallas happened to be out with her and some of their other friends at The Stage, one of the honky tonks in Nashville, celebrating a friend's recent engagement. I had visitors in town who wanted to see what the honky tonks were all about and we happened to choose the same bar. When we walked into the bar, I walked over to say hello to my friend and then went to grab a drink. Dallas asked our friend who I was and to introduce us and the rest is history! We went on our first date later that week.
Describe your first date.
Dallas picked me up, like the southern gentleman he is, and took me to a delicious Mexican restaurant , Saint Anejo, they have the most delicious margaritas! After sitting there and chatting for hours, we went to this bar, Two Bits, that has a bunch of board games and video games. We decided to play Mario Kart and Dallas slaughtered me, I think I lost six games in a row to him, the man shows no mercy!
When and where did you have your first kiss?
Our first kiss was on the same night as our first date. When Dallas dropped me off at the door to my apartment complex he gave me the sweetest goodnight kiss!
Who said “I love you” first?
Dallas, but I said it right back.
How did you propose?
I knew I wanted to propose to Taylor when we were visiting her family in California and specifically in Pacifica, because that is where she grew up. I chose this beach walk that we had done the first time she took me to visit her family. We walked up a side path on the top of the hill that overlooked the entire beach below and it just so happened that she had never been up there before. After we took in the beautiful view, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me!
Who is the better cook?
Dallas, he does almost all of the cooking!
Who is the messiest?
Hmmmmmm, we are equally messy!
Do you have a nickname for each other?
Dal and Tay. We are laughing at how boring those are!
Who is more likely to eat dessert for every meal?
Taylor, but she would rather have a salty snack than something sweet any day.
Who is the better story teller?
This is one that we couldn't agree on.....let's just say neither of us are very good story tellers!
What is your favorite quality about each other?
I love Dallas' kind heart, he would give a stranger the shirt off his back without hesitation .-Taylor
Taylor is the most loyal person I have ever met and that is my favorite quality in her. She has always been there for me 100% since the moment we started dating. -Dallas
