Erick and Alicia met when she was a student in the high school youth group at church and Erick was a small group leader. Once Alicia graduated, she quickly became involved as a helper in the same group. Erick had been her brother’s friend and small group leader before they became friends. While at a church staff retreat, the two quickly hit it off and built a fun-loving friendship. A couple months later, Erick surprised Alicia with a bouquet of flowers and confessed he wanted to pursue a deeper relationship with her. Not long after, under Lake Tahoe’s grand finale firework show, Erick got down on one knee and asked Alicia to marry him! She was always taught to write down a list of qualities she wanted in a man and to never settle for anything less. Erick exceeds that list and blesses Alicia with so much more than she could have ever dreamed of! They are each others best friend and push each other to try new things. Erick has taught Alicia how to ski and snowmobile and she has taught him how to eat different foods other than red meat:) They enjoy having in-home movie nights and sometimes getting dressed up for a night out on the town. Alicia says, “I always knew Erick was “the one” and I cannot wait to start my new life and new family with him!”
Alicia and Erick got married at the beautiful Grand Ballroom in McMinnville, OR but we had a blast doing their formal pictures at Linfield College…what a beautiful campus!
