Angela and Josh first met when they were in middle school. Even though they shared the same friend group, it wasn’t until Josh moved back after college that they started to hang out. Initially, Josh tried to set Angela up with one of his friends, but his plan back fired. But don’t ask the couple when they had their first date. It just happened. “I technically don’t know when the line crossed from friends to dating,” explains Angela. What they do know is their bond grew over a bowling game where the night got quite competitive.

A trip to Beaver Creek in Colorado was the scene of their proposal. Angela set off for a three-hour hike with her girlfriends, but when they got back, all of the men wanted to join. “Everyone wanted to take pictures in the fields so we left the trail, and right as we had finished goofing off Josh walks up to me for a drink of water. As I was walking off he grabbed my hand and pulled my backwards, and there he was on his knee,” she explains.

Josh attended the University of Texas in Dallas and majored in accounting. He works at Protiviti as an IT Consultant. Angela attended the University of North Texas with a degree in fashion merchandising. She works as an account manager at Neiman Marcus. Thy will marry Saturday, April 1, 2017, at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Los Colinas.
