In this article, video, and podcast episode, Alan and Carrie share the story of their engagement and wedding. Alan and Carrie are the creators of Age Gap Love Story, are dedicated to helping normalize relationships with large age differences and helping to bring a sense of community to people who are in age gap relationships.
For information on how we met, please refer to episode 3 on our YouTube channel or podcast where we discussed in detail how we met and fell in love. Just to summarize, we over the phone as I (Carrie) was helping set up a business event where Alan was speaking.
Alan was already cracking jokes as they chatted on the phone and so I got a sense that he had a great sense of humor. The connection grew from there and we ended up dating for five years before Alan proposed.
We got married at a beach-front hotel in Santa Barbara, CA, in front of about 75 close friends and family. For our honeymoon, we went on a Mediterranean cruise to Italy, Spain, France, Monaco, and Greece.
Here are a few pictures from our wedding.
For more details on Alan’s proposal and our wedding, plus what we would have changed based on the experience, please check out the YouTube video or the podcast.
