|Brent can't help but give Erin a kiss at the start of the ceremony.|
Erin and Brent met at a party at the start of fall semester 2004 at the West Virginia University. She was 19 and he had just turned 20 years old.
|Erin honored her two Dads by asking them both to bring her down the aisle.|
When Brent woke up the next morning, Erin was his first thought. He says, “If you would have asked me the day before I met Erin, I would have told you that I was young, in my second year of college, living with friends, I did not want a girlfriend.” Everything changed however, the moment he met Erin.
From that point forward, Erin spent almost all of her free time with Brent. She quickly endeared herself to Brent’s housemates and because of her kind and caring nature, she became the known as the “house mom” to their group of friends. The early days of their romance involved, a lot of silliness, a shared dedication to demonstrating their Mountaineer pride, date nights to Buffalo Wild Wings for 25-cent wing night, and helping Brent cope from the recent loss of his father to cancer.
One day Brent caught Erin just looking at him, smiling. When he asked what she was doing, Erin said with a smile, “I finally met my match.”

One thing that has not changed for these two, is how much they love each other and always can find a way to laugh together. Early on in their relationship Brent says he realized that “making Erin laugh, making her smile, making her feel safe, actually made ME happy!
