How did you meet?
We met at Elon University as freshman. We both lived on the Service Learning Community floor. The SLC was comprised of about 40 other freshman who had come to campus about 2 weeks earlier than the rest of the campus. Throughout the year our floor did service projects together, had classes together and played intramurals together. We became close as a floor during our first year on campus – from our year on the floor we’ve actually had four other couples get married – we’ll make the 5th! We remained good friends during our four years at Elon and then after we graduated.
How long did you date before you got engaged?
We dated for a little more than two and a half years before we got engaged.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We got engaged in August of 2008. Adam proposed to me in San Francisco at the Golden Gate Park near one of the cities oldest windmills. We put together a rundown of the entire proposal on Adam’s blog: http://adamlentz.blogspot.com/2008/08/were-engaged.html
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
We enjoy spending time together outside. We both enjoy running and hiking. We are both looking forward for some great trips up to the mountains this fall.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
We are very excited to be sharing our wedding day with our friends and family. We have been building to this moment for over a year and the moment is finally here. We are looking forward to the wonderful celebration that is to follow our marriage and share in the joy with the people that care about us. It’s going to be an amazing moment when we exchange our vows and we’re both able to slip the rings on each other’s fingers. We cannot wait for this weekend!
What do you love the most about each other?
Erin: What I love about Adam is… Adam is one of the most caring people I have ever met with the biggest heart. He spends his time working to help people and I love that about him. Adam is always up for anything which is great because I don’t like to sit still for too long and he makes me laugh all the time. The best thing about him is he makes me feel safe and I can’t help but smile when I see him. He loves me for me and he is kind to everyone and always willing to help with anything and everyone. Adam is the most kind hearted man and I am very lucky to have found him.
Adam: What I love about Erin is… she is one of the most amazing people I know. She is full of more strength and courage than most anyone I know. But beyond that she’s so caring and passionate towards other people and is always striving to be the best person she can be. I don’t know anyone else who lives by the Golden Rule more so than Erin. I love Erin’s personality and sense of humor – she’s always up for a good time and strives to find the good in all things. She’s also very easy on the eyes.
