Erica and Quinn-Draper Utah Temple
Let me put this out there, these two have an adorable story that was 13 years in the making. But first lets talk about the incredible Draper Utah Temple. Does it ever stop being windy up there? I mean I have shot several weddings there and it always makes for beautiful windy, romantic photos but it is always windy. Not like breezy, I mean windy and hard to see where you are going, kind of wind. Regardless it is one of the most beautiful temples around. You can’t beat the views and the decor inside is likely my favorite of any I have ever been in.
Lets get to the good stuff, the story. Erica and Quinn met in college while attending USU. Erica always liked Quinn and admired him. They became friends and spent time hanging in the same circles. Erica and Quinn both moved and a few years later they finally went on a date. They enjoyed each others company but left things at that. Erica moved to California and Quinn traveled the world with his work. They kept in touch over the years. Erica got married and had her beautiful daughter. Several years went by and her marriage ended. She wanted to build her friendships again after this hard time and she immediately remembered Quinn. They always had great conversation and he made her laugh. They kept things light and that is what she wanted know. But as they reconnected, things were different. Life changed both of them for the better. After a short time they knew that they wanted to be married.
Quinn lived in Utah and Erica lived in Washington. So they decided any time Quinn would fly for work and he could route through Washington they would try to see each other or when he had enough sky miles Erica and her daughter would fly to Quinn. Erica moved back to Utah and then they were married.
I have known Erica for 15 years and I have never known her more settled. They are great together. Life throws you curve balls and sometimes you never know whats around the corner. For these two this romance was 13 years in the making.
Fun fact about Quinn is that he has goats! You should check out his account and follow their goat family at Goatstigram. Lets be honest, Kevin is my favorite!
