Meet Radcliffe Couple: Fran + Kristian

January 29, 2020

Where did you meet?


We met in person at Bond Street Social after chatting for a bit on Bumble. Both of us were out and with friends. We had discussed potentially meeting up that night and could not seem to find each other the whole evening. Kristian will tell you that he was getting ready to leave when a massive crowd of people in between us all moved out of the way and we both just happened to look up and locked eyes. Needless to say he did not end up leaving and we hit it off right away!


Please describe the proposal.


We were on vacation with friends and family in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. He grew up skiing there and always goes for the holiday, but this was our 2nd year going together, and I had fallen in love with the cute little town. We had just spent the day skiing and were on the top of the mountain taking our annual family photo with this funny Sombrero wearing photographer for about 15 minutes. Right when I thought we were wrapping up, the photographer suggested taking couples photos and a few shots in, he proposed. Turns out he had asked the photographer to grab photos of the whole proposal and the family photos were just a cover! It was really cute!

What was the first thing you did after you got engaged?


We rushed back down the Gondola to get ready for dinner with several of our friends and family and I called my best friend in Nashville, Cindy.


Have you picked a date? Venue? Theme?


Not yet. We are leaning towards a black-tie winter wedding in 2021... complete with snow!


What is something you and your fiancé like to do together?


We really enjoy working out together. We use each other as motivation to push harder during our workouts. We also enjoy traveling together. Every year we choose a destination around the world from a jar that we both really want to visit and that is our big trip of the year.


Will you be taking a honeymoon? If so, where and why did you pick that destination?


Yes! Likely somewhere in Europe.


What is a fun fact about you as a couple?


We are both dancing machines. There is not a dance floor that we will not tear up!
