Brian and Tricia first met in 2011 when they had their first date at Pedro O'Haras in Lewiston, ME. After that one date, they became inseparable. Shortly after they moved in together they got a second cat and started traveling the world. In 2014, they bought a house together in Portland, ME and started envisioning their future together.

Brian had been working up his way to propose to Tricia for a while when he got the ring. He then went to Tricia's parents to ask for her hand in marriage. Tricia received her bachelor's degree on May 9, 2015 and after taking pictures with everyone else, it was Brian and Tricia's turn. Brian got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. Tricia was on cloud nine, especially since Brian had kept it all a big secret and surprised Tricia.
